Penfolds安瓿项目是Penfolds酿酒师与著名银匠亨德里克·福斯特(Hendrik Forster)、家具大师安德鲁·巴利特(Andrew Bartlett)、玻璃艺术家尼克·芒特(Nick Mount)与科学玻璃吹制大师雷·里克(Ray Leake)合作的结晶。核心则是产自卡琳娜葡萄园的著名2004年42区赤霞珠葡萄酒。
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.
Dense in colour.
Intense blackcurrant, dark chocolate and liquorice aromas.
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.
熟化 : Fermentation was completed in medium toast, new 300L oak hogsheads, before the wine underwent 13 months barrel fermentation.
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.
