The 2019 class of new releases from Australian superstar Penfolds hits the market this morning with a number of hotly anticipated vintages of some of Australia's leading wines.
Having tasted this superlative new line-up at Penfolds' London Masterclass led by chief winemaker Peter Gago last week, we are pleased to report that they are thoroughly impressive for their sheer style and power across the range. After all, who can claim such a diverse, prestigious stable of wines anywhere in the world?
This release class shows a resurgence of the Shiraz-based wines, following on from a particularly strong performance from the Cabernets last year. The Cabs have continued their strong form but it is hard to argue with 98 points for St. Henri and a perfect 100-point Grange!
The whites are similarly fantastic, with the Tumbarumba and Yattarna performing their annual double act as the Vaudésir and Meursault Charmes of Australia. Really there is not a single weak link in this year's releases and lovers of Penfolds' varied, yet iconic styles will be entranced. We know we were!
