Penfolds Collection 2021: 70 years of Grange and two new Superblends

Celebrations to mark the 70th anniversary of Grange coincided with the release of the Penfolds Collection 2021, featuring two new Cabernet-Shiraz Superblends and 2017 Grange. Decanter was among the first invited to an exclusive preview tasting ahead of the wines’ global launch on 5 August.

Collectors of Penfolds wines have two new iterations to add to their cellars: the 802A and 802B Cabernet-Shiraz blends.

Described as ‘siblings raised in different environments’, the two 2018 Superblends are part of the 18-strong Penfolds Collection 2021.

In its 70th anniversary, Grange 2017 – releasing at AU$950 on 5 August (£510/$695)– is 100% Shiraz for only the seventh time. It joins the 1951 experimental vintage, as well as 1952, 1963, 1999, 2000 and 2011.
