曾祖父罕见托利酒

Penfolds曾祖父罕见托利酒是祖父托利酒最优质、最古老成分的混酿酒,这种葡萄酒最早于1994年面世,用于庆祝Penfolds创办150周年。曾祖父酒采用优质陈年索雷拉(架型混调系统)材料混酿,包含索雷拉系统中最古老的成分。

产年历史

Great Grandfather Rare Tawny was created in 1994 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Penfolds.

After an initial launch of exactly 1994 bottles to commemorate the year of its inaugural release, Great Grandfather is only ever released in limited quantities to ensure the age and quality of the style is never compromised.

Taste Description

Colour
Lustrous deep tawny with an obvious yellow-green edge.

Nose
Intense, fragrant and seductive. Alluring toffee/praline notes. Rich fruit characters of quince paste, fig, raisin and candied peel. Toasted almonds and roasted chestnuts.  The aromatic elements conspire into a wonderful integration, that complexes and evolves in the glass.

Palate
Seamless and integrated from start to finish. Dark fruitcake, milk and dark chocolate, coffee, vanillin and aniseed all in abundance. Toffee/brûlée sugar with orange zest and marzipan add length and balance to the palate. The richness and weight of the wine are held in harmony by the spirit-acid balance, which conveys the long, persistent finish.

Vintage Conditions

The current Great Grandfather Solera contains a vintage span of 42 years with individual components covering 1960 to 2002 included. This large span of vintages ensures consistency and that the required level of age and youth for complexity and freshness is maintained.

Spirit Selection

A specially selected ex-still fortifying spirit that has a distinctive aroma and flavour. The selected spirit traditionally has a strength between 78 and 85%v/v and must have the power and intensity to accompany and enhance the 30 years of age concentration and complexity without presenting as the dominant character.

While spirit is the main driver of style in younger wines it becomes a less dominant contributor in wines of this age as the aged components take the forefront. 

情况说明

Maturation: For the first 20 years components are matured in the Grandfather Solera. Further maturation occurs in old oak hogsheads before being blended and introduced into the three stage ‘Great Grandfather Solera’.

Variety: A core selection of varieties made up of Mataro (Mourvedre), Shiraz, Cabernet, and Grenache, but not limited to these varieties.
