Mourvedre, Shiraz, Cabernet and Grenache (but not limited to these varieties) aged in a solera system for 20 years and then aged for a further 10.
An extremely dark mahogany brown with an intense olive green tinge. The nose is extremely intense and complex with raisined fruit, toffee and malt aromas long since integrated with nutty aged rancio, vanillin oak and subtle spirit. The palate clearly demonstrates its great age and quality with incredible intensity of flavour, viscosity and length matched to elegance and finesse. The wine has a perfect harmony of rich developed fruit flavours, aged rancio complexity and a slightly drying finish.
Drawn from the Grandfather Solera with an average age of 20 years is set aside for extended maturation (10 years) to give Penfolds Great Grandfather Rare Tawny an average age above 30 years. Great Grandfather Rare Tawny is Penfolds’ rarest wine; only 1000 bottles are available each release. The first release, in 1994, deliberately comprised 1994 bottles.
