Lot. 1990 Pot Distilled Single Batch Brandy

It has been a long wait, but a worthwhile one, as we showcase our unique take on a bold classic – Penfolds Lot. 1990 Pot Distilled Single Batch Brandy.

Placed in barrels in 1990, our Brandy has been slowly maturing for nearly three decades. Finished with a splash of Grandfather Tawny, the result is an exceptional blend that delivers vibrancy and freshness to the palate, alongside complexity, richness and indulgence. It is a secret we’ve been holding for 28 years. Time to share it.

Taste Description

Colour
Medium density russet with highlights of red and a distinctive yellow green edge.

Nose
An intense and powerful combination of aromas that have integrated together so no individual dominates.
Discovery is part of the indulgence. Vanilla, cinnamon, mocha, dried apricots, prunes and nectarines merge to form a liveliness and freshness that entices to search for more... it’s more than a brandy!
The influence of the Grandfather liqueuring and oak is obvious adding further vitality and density to the aromas.

A combination of marzipan, baked figs, cardamom and cinnamon spice surround the senses. The finish is warming with great persistence.
