Penfolds Special Release wines are held in the greatest esteem by generations of Australian and international wine collectors. Deeply connected to Australian wine culture, each release or bottling has in some way represented a point of progress within the modern Australian wine industry. Some of these Special Release wines have led to the formation of masterpieces such as Grange or Bin 707. Whilst others are the impressive result of explorative jaunts into the landscape of South Australia and New South Wales, to build winemaking knowledge and experience. Many of the wines, like the 1962 Penfolds Bin 60A Kalimna Shiraz and Coonawarra Cabernet, have enjoyed exceptional Australian wine show careers and extraordinary fame. The success of these and many other Special Release wines has led to recognition and renown for the vineyards in and around Adelaide, the Kalimna Vineyard in the Barossa Valley and Coonawarra.
