For 175 years, Penfolds has been grounded in experimentation, curiosity and uncompromising quality. This foundation has driven us since the very beginning and with each generation of custodians it is celebrated. As we mark our 175th year, Penfolds honours those who defined our history.
Christopher Rawson Penfold began it all. A doctor, with an eye for winemaking, he and his wife Mary sought a new calling in Australia. They found it in Magill Estate. Here, Christopher planted vines and set in motion philosophies that would remain with Penfolds to this day. This full-bodied wine with its ripe fruit aromas, voluminous richness and subtle oak spice, is dedicated to him.
