2006 Penfolds St Henri - 50th Commercial Release Celebrating its 50th Commercial Release with the current 2006 vintage, Penfolds St Henri is a highly successful and alternative expression of Shiraz and an intriguing counterpoint to Grange. It is unusual among high quality Australian red wines as it does not rely on any new oak. It was created in the early 1950s (first commercial vintage 1957) and gained a new lease of life in the 1990s as its quality and distinctive style became better understood. St Henri is rich and plush when young, gaining soft, earthy, mocha-like characters as it ages. It is matured in old, 1460-litre vats that allow the wine to develop, imparting minimal, if any oak character. Although a small proportion of Cabernet is sometimes used to improve structure, the focal point for St Henri remains Shiraz and the 2006 vintage does not disappoint!Medium-bodied and elegant. A palate stand-off / divide - Kirsch and dark fruits versus pomegranate, cranberry & dessicated Chinese plums. Cold meat flavours - corned beef or poached silverside?

Dear Penfolds Connoisseur,

I am delighted to introduce the launch of the Penfolds wine page on Tesco.com. As custodians for all Penfolds wines, the winemaking team in Australia are immensely proud to be responsible for crafting wines - red & white - for a loyal base 12,000 miles away!

Ever since Penfolds was established by the young English Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold in 1844, our mantra has always been to strive for excellence via innovation, hard work and passion. No single wine is truer to this legacy than Penfolds Grange. Created by the legendary Penfolds winemaker Max Schubert in 1951, Grange was even made in secret during the 1957, 1958 & 1959 harvests, following a Penfolds-Hyland family decision to discontinue the wine. Thankfully the determination and passion of the winemaking team won through and Grange was re-released to go on to become a global flagship of Australian wine.

Penfolds offers a tiered array of wines, cascading down from Grange & Yattarna, through to St Henri Shiraz, Cellar Reserve Pinot Noir the new Bin 23 Pinot Noir, the powerful Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz, and recent additions to the Penfolds stable, Koonunga Hill Seventy Six Shiraz Cabernet and Autumn Riesling.

Our winemaking philosophy is based on an offer of a range of three wine styles, single-vineyard, single-viticultural region, and multi- regional blends, oftentimes also blending varieties. This winemaking approach helps to both maintain stylistic differences and retain a distinctive Penfolds House Style across vintage.

With an extensive range at Tesco.com to suit to all budgets we hope that you will be able to find the ideal Penfolds wine to accompany any occasion.

I wish you the very best from Penfolds for the Festive Season and hope that our future vintages will delight and inspire you.

Best regards,

Peter Gago

PENFOLDS BIN SERIES

The philosophy behind the Bin numbering system dates back to the 1950's when it was the policy of the then Chief Winemaker Max Schubert, to give a trial number to each wine and the practice continues to this day. The success of the wines themselves, the care and attention they receive and a company philosophy of quality-first, has culminated in some of the greatest red wines in the world being created, wines which will continue to develop over the next decade, into the true classics of the future.

BIN 389

Combining the elegance of Cabernet Shiraz with the richness of Shiraz, Bin 389 is matured in American oak casks - including those that held the previous vintage of Penfolds Grange. It features rich varietal flavours, balanced oak complexity and a firm finish.

Youthful, bright dark fruits hover over a base of stewed rhubarb and quince paste. Integrated oak serves to tighten the palate rather than impart any flavour, although upon sitting, coffee ground and barrel ferment nuances arise and linger.

BIN 2 SHIRAZ MOURVEDRE

A blend of Shiraz and Mourvèdre from selected vineyards in South Eastern Australia, Penfolds Bin 2 is intended for immediate enjoyment. The wine offers ripe, spicy varietal flavours balanced with subtle oak and soft, well rounded tannin. Stewed blackberry, dark plum and liquorice. With closer inspection... quince paste, marinated fruit salad mix.

BIN 311 CHARDONNAY

A lavish array of complex fruits with nectarous mouth watering acid. White stone fruits, figs and pink grapefruit are balanced by a creamy honey mid palate. A delicious cooler climate style for those who don't think they like Chardonnay.

A wet stone minerality provides line and length on the palate, supporting layers of white stonefruits and grapefruit with lemon citrus characters.

BIN 138 OLD VINE BAROSSA VALLEY GRENACHE SHIRAZ MOURVEDRE

Combining the exotic, spicy flavours of the classic Southern Rhône varieties Shiraz, Mourvèdre and Grenache, Penfolds access to many of the Barossa Valley's finest old vine vineyard sites is reflected in the depth of rich, earthy flavours and complexity in this full-bodied wine.

An immediate saturation of cranberry, blackberry & pomegranate fruits meld with red liquorice.

BIN 28 KALIMNA SHIRAZ

A blend of Shiraz from selected South Australian vineyards , including the renowned Penfolds Kalimna vineyard. This full-flavoured, classic Shiraz spends at least a year maturing in older American oak to achieve a balance of ripe, spicy fruit and velvety soft tannins. A mix of cooked beetroot and liqueur chocolate are intertwined with dark berried fruits. Maturation in older oak has sensitively assimilated all flavour and structural elements.

BIN 128 COONAWARRA SHIRAZ

Made from Shiraz grown at selected Coonawarra vineyards in the far South-East of South Australia, this premium wine has the distinctive aromatic pepper and spice characters of its cool-climate origins, complimented by the savoury flavours of French oak maturation. Rhubarb and berried fruits with wonderfully integrated oak and spice. Cola and black olive flavours descend with an exuberant swirl.

Close Close

BIN 389 CABERNET SHIRAZ

Is the classic South Australian red wine: a magical marriage between elegant Cabernet Sauvignon and generous shiraz.

Created by the legendary Max Schubert - creator of Penfolds Grange - Bin 389 is often referred to as 'Poor Man's Grange' or 'Baby Grange', in part because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange.

First made in 1960, this was the wine that helped to build Penfolds solid reputation with red wine drinkers. Combining the structure of Cabernet with the richness of Shiraz, Bin 389 also exemplifies Penfolds skill in balancing fruit and oak.

Youthful, bright dark fruits hover over a base of stewed rhubarb and quince paste. Integrated oak serves to tighten the palate rather than impart any flavour, although upon sitting, coffee ground and barrel ferment nuances arise and linger.

KOONUNGA HILL 'SEVENTY SIX' SHIRAZ CABERNET

The original 1976 Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet is a legendary wine that is still drinking well today. The Koonunga Hill 'Seventy Six' Shiraz Cabernet is a winemaking tribute to the original and now legendary 1976 Koonunga Hill. Ripe blueberry and dark cherry fruits stylishly combine with chocolate and olive flavours.

KOONUNGA HILL AUTUMN RIELSING 2008

Some of Penfolds' finest riesling parcels in the early 1970s were bottled under this label and the Koonunga Hill Autumn Riesling acknowledges the original 1972 vintage by closely adhering to the original packaging with a fitting 'retro' label. The wine pays further homage to the original through being specially crafted to develop further with bottle age. Racy acidity prompts lemon zest and pink grapefruit with riper guava notes

BIN 23 ADELAIDE HILLS PINOT NOIR 2009

The inaugural 2009 Penfolds Bin 23 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir's name is derived from maturation Cellar 23 at Magill Estate. Bin 23 Pinot Noir is a bold, new addition to the Bin collection and promises to be a dynamic member of the Bin family - reflecting its evolving style, regional definition and the complexities of the many & varied clones of Pinot Noir.

Rich, generous, mouthfilling. Flavours of rhubarb & beetroot in tandem with the delightful fruits of a wild berry compote. Rounded softened tannins align with stylish, integrated oak to extend what is already a formidable palate length.

CELLAR RESERVE PINOT NOIR 2007

Cold soaked, partially whole bunch fermented and hand-plunged, both Penfolds and Pinot.

The Cellar Reserve Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir was first released commercially in 1997, following a series of winemaking trials by Peter Gago at Magill Estate. Small-batch winemaking practice is central to the overall style of this pinot noir. The fruit is sourced from various cool-climate vineyard sites around Adelaide Hills, and around the clock hand plunging through the fermentation process further optimises the flavours until the wine approaches dryness.

Plush, well rounded & well balanced. Varietal, sweet red-curranted / cherry fruits gain further complexity with cold meat (lamb & corned beef) flavours. Texturally seamless - integrated oak & tannins conspiring to make their tactile impression!

LUXURY & ICON WINES

Penfolds Grange is the benchmark against which all other Australian red wines are measured. It is increasingly an international benchmark for Shiraz, along with the finest wines from the European home of the variety, the Rhône Valley of France. In the past decade Penfolds Grange has been described as a leading candidate for the richest, most concentrated dry red table wine on earth and named one of the top dozen wines of the 20th Century. The range is complemented by RWT, St Henri, Magill Estate, Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon, Yattarna and Reserve Bin A Chardonnay. Each wine has a distinct style, personality and cult following amongst consumers around the world.

GRANGE 2003

Penfolds Grange is a wine of extraordinary dimension and power. Richly textured, intensely concentrated and packed with fruit sweetness, these wines, regardless of vintage, require medium to long-term cellaring. They develop into immensely complex, beguiling wines that seduce the senses.

Dark and liqueur chocolate, laced with Moroccan spices. An underlying tar/graphite blackness is lifted by derived fruit/quince pie flavours. Long, layered and compelling, this wine is at the spicier end of the Grange spectrum.

ST HENRI SHIRAZ 2006

St Henri is unique amongst ultra-premium Australian Shiraz, maturing in large old casks and deriving its character entirely from the manifold varietal flavours of its fruit. It is a classically elegant wine, offering impressive depth and structure, ideal for long-term cellaring.

Medium-bodied and 'elegant'. A palate stand-off / divide - Kirsch and dark fruits versus pomegranate / cranberry & dessicated Chinese plums. Cold meat flavours - corned beef or poached silverside?

RWT BAROSSA VALLEY SHIRAZ 2007

The development of RWT Barossa Valley Shiraz fully reflects Penfolds winemaking philosophy of continuing to innovate in the search for diversity and excellence, integrating richly textured Barossa Valley Shiraz with the finesse of fine-grained French oak.

Firm, lively & vibrant. Cola and a flavour sensation not dissimilar to a generous slice of Blackforest cake, replete with fruits. Tight, finely-grained harmonious oak and lacy, mouth-coating tannins induce a multi-dimensional 3D palate, tempered by crisp acidity.

Close Close

KOONUNGA HILL

Koonunga Hill - The first Koonunga Hill, named after the Penfolds Barossa Valley vineyard, came from the 1976 vintage at a time when the local market was awash with surplus red wine creating difficult market conditions. The winemaking team knew they would need to over deliver on quality if the new label was to have any hope of survival. That first vintage, a Shiraz Cabernet blend sold for less than $2 AUD a bottle. It was an instant success that still drinks well today and established Koonunga Hill's esteemed reputation worldwide. Today the expanded range continues to over deliver on quality in its price bracket.

KOONUNGA HILL CHARDONNAY

A soft round palate of medium weight with an initial burst of vibrant fruit flavours, balanced by clean, crisp acidity. Creamy malolactic characters and well-integrated oak provide structure and depth.

KOONUNGA HILL SHIRAZ CABERNET

The palate displays a commendable balance of vibrant fruit and well-handled oak, with trademark mid-palate richness. The wine has impressive weight, length and persistence of flavour with stewed plum, rhubarb and dark berry fruits.

THOMAS HYLAND

Nearly 150 years after Thomas Hyland first laid eyes on Dr Penfolds daughter Georgina, the Australian wine industry is still reaping the benefits of his romantic heart. Having married into the Penfolds family, Thomas immediately joined the family business and quickly grew the market for the company. Under Thomas Hyland, Penfolds grew into the foremost name in Australian wine and much of the company's strength comes from the firm foundations he laid down more than a century ago. The Thomas Hyland range of wines was created to honour his legacy and rightly bears the Penfolds stamp of quality that he worked so hard to establish.

THOMAS HYLAND CHARDONNAY

The palate shows initial bursts of citrus fruit and honeydew melon followed by a creamy, yeast derived mid-palate. Barrel fermentation, battonage and malolactic fermentation further add to the complexity. Consistently well awarded.

THOMAS HYLAND SHIRAZ

Blackberry and dark stone fruits meshed with black olives provide the flavour base. Ripe tannins in synergy with cedary oak help mould a signature 'Penfold palate' - tight, with mid-palate sweetness.
