产年历史

When the Ampoule was first brought to the world’s attention in 2012 it became a media sensation. With only twelve handmade vessels in existence (each individually numbered), the Penfolds Ampoule is a testament to fine wine, South Australian heritage and the skills of the region's finest craftsmen. Four of whom were commissioned to collaborate with the winemaking team on this distinctive project.

The glass sculpture was designed and hand-blown by Nick Mount, an internationally recognised glass artist. Prominent Australian designer-maker Hendrik Forster prepared all the precious metal detailing. Furniture craftsman Andrew Bartlett designed and made the bespoke Jarrah cabinet. The scientific–grade ampoule, designed to store the wine in an ideal environment, and encased within the glass sculpture, was created by veteran scientific glassblower Ray Leake.

Taste Description

Colour
Dense in colour.

Nose
Intense blackcurrant, dark chocolate and liquorice aromas.

Palate
Fine, silky tannins and richly concentrated flavours are in perfect harmony. The sheer volume and weight of fruit explodes across the palate, giving tremendous depth and length of flavour.

情况说明

Origin: Block 42 Kalimna Vineyard, Barossa Valley, South Australia.

Maturation: Fermentation was completed in medium toast, new 300L oak hogsheads, before the wine underwent 13 months barrel fermentation.

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vintage Conditions

Above average winter rainfall led into a promising vintage, which was characterised by mild conditions up until February, followed by hot weather conditions throughout March and April.

South Australia fared well and produced wines of elegance and intensity.
