To further your Penfolds wine experience, vintage release tasting notes are written by Penfolds winemakers at the time of release. Each tasting note describes the wine's nose, palate and colour; the first marker of the wines journey in bottle. Each Penfolds wine has a unique history of which an excerpt is shared.
As the wine matures with time, the tasting commentary will evolve. Penfolds Rewards of Patience 7th Edition provides updated commentary of many of our back vintage wines.
Although these tasting notes and reviews offer cellaring guidance, no bottle develops or matures exactly the same. The enjoyment timeframe of a wine is ultimately a personal one, linked to the shared experience, a milestone or just because.
