Our Classic Port Hamper from Sydney gift hampers catalogue contains a genuine 10-year-old Penfolds Father Tawny Port, so let us take a closer look at this port to determine if this hamper is the right choice for your recipient.
What Is the History of Penfold’s Grand Tawny Port?
Everyone who knows a little about Australian winemaking has heard of Penfolds, because this label has been around for a very long time. Penfolds was at the forefront of winemaking more than two hundred years ago and have undoubtedly put their mark on the winemaking industry thanks to centuries of experience.
The history of Australia is also reflected in the wines produced by Penfolds. Their range clearly reflects Australia’s journey from a colonial settlement to the modern era we live in today; this can be explained by the fact that Penfolds was founded only eight years after the foundation of South Australia. As a result, the wine label has played and still plays a significant role in winemaking around the globe.
Has Penfold’s Grand Tawny Port Won Any Awards?
Of course, customers do not have to take our word for it that Penfold’s is a great choice for wine and port lovers, because the numerous awards obtained by Penfolds prove that. Since its foundation, Penfold’s has obtained countless awards from winning the International Wine Challenge to receiving credit in “The Good Wine Guide”. So even customers that know little about wines and ports can be sure about their decision when choosing Penfolds port.
What Is Special About Penfold’s Vineyards?
When you are already familiar with Penfold’s, you are probably aware that the label uses numerous vineyards around the country to make their outstanding releases. To give you a better overview of the winemaking possibilities from this label, let us take a closer look at some of their vineyards and their most remarkable characteristics.
Magill Estate Vineyard
The Magill Estate Vineyard is the location where Penfolds plants and harvests its grapes for shiraz. The vineyard itself is situation in the metropolitan area of Adelaide, which means that grapes can benefit greatly from the warm and dry climate that this area is known for.
One of the first shiraz vines were planted by Penfolds as early as 1951. The most recent plants date all the way back to 1985, so there is plenty of value on this vineyard. To ensure all grapes provide the best flavours and contribute to the overall palate of wine releases, Penfolds makes sure that all vines are hand-pruned and hand-harvested.
Adelaide Hills Vineyards
When you come across a cool-climate wine from Penfolds, it is likely that grapes used to create the wine were obtained from their Adelaide Hills Vineyard. The location of the Adelaide Hill Vineyards is in Forreston and Mt Pleasant, all the way down to Kuitpo, Macclesfield and Clarendon in the South.
The strength of the Adelaide Hill Vineyards lies in the versatility of the soil, since the composition of the soil may vary across each region. Soils currently used by Penfolds include free-draining Ironstone gravels, sandstone, medium clay and alluvial soils. The rainfall within those areas is also variable, but can reach more than 700 mm.
When needed, Penfolds can acquire additional irrigation for their vineyards from the nearby dam and bores, for which special driplines under the vines are used. The versatility of the region and availability of irrigation ensures there is room for a lot of cold climate grape varieties, which includes chardonnay, pinot noir, pinot Gris, sauvignon blanc, Semillon, shiraz and cabernet sauvignon.
The Kalimna Vineyard is situated in Northern Barossa and provides vines with a warm and dry climate for cabernet sauvignon vines. The soil consists of deep alluvial sands and red-brown clays, which enable the label to deliver some outstanding cabernet sauvignon releases.
One of the first vines were planted as early as 1888; this was followed by more planting and restructuring, since Penfolds only acquired the vineyards in 1945. Considering the size of the area, some parts of the vineyard are mechanically pruned and harvested. There are some areas that contain vines that are considerably more delicate, such as the block 42 with century old vines. Naturally, these areas are handpicked to ensure the original vines are not compromised.
Koonunga Hill Vineyard
A vineyard with predominantly red-brown earth and heavy red clays is the Koonunga Hill Vineyard, which is situated in Northern Barossa. The vineyard has a generally warm climate with an average rainfall of 502 mm, which reduces during the growing season. Additional irrigation is also available when needed.
The Koonunga Hill Vineyard can contribute to the creation of multiple Penfolds releases, which includes Grange, Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon, RWT Shiraz, Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz and Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz. All these wines are true recommendations for anyone who enjoys a warm climate wine.
More Vineyards Owned by Penfolds
Since Penfolds has numerous vineyards that belong to their label, it is almost impossible to describe them all in detail. In addition to the main vineyards we already described, Penfolds is also the proud owner of other good vineyard locations, which includes Stonewell, Waltones, Zilm, Barossa Valley, Bethany, Blencowe, Booths, Coonawarra and Robe. Thanks to all these vineyards, Penfolds can deliver some outstanding wines to Australian wine lovers.
What Is So Special About Penfold’s Father Grand Tawny Port?
Even though Penfolds has numerous wine releases under its label, which range from limited editions to cellar reserves, the best-known beverage from their range is still the Father Grand Tawny Port. The port is a genuine tribute to more than 150 years of winemaking and kept within the cellar walls of Penfolds’ Magill Estate.
To ensure port lovers truly enjoy this magnificent release, Penfolds created an outstanding blend of tawnies, which was matured in dedicated small oak casks for an average of ten years. With so much dedication, the result could only be one of the best port release this country has to offer.
