Penfolds has proudly unveiled a remarkable collaboration to mark 170 years of winemaking heritage. In its anniversary year, 'LINLEY for Penfolds' celebrates the birthplace of Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold, the founder of Penfolds, and is the ultimate expression of artisan craftsmanship.

The collaboration brings together an extraordinary commission to befit an extraordinary wine, the 2010 Bin 170 Kalimna Shiraz.

Created only once before in 1973, Bin 170 is a single block, single vineyard wine, sourced exclusively from old vines planted in the ancient soils of Block 3C, Kalimna Vineyard located in the Barossa Valley, South Australia.

To commemorate this limited edition fine wine release, Penfolds commissioned British cabinet maker, David Linley, through his luxury brand LINLEY, to create a number of bespoke signature cases using time-honoured and modern techniques.
