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

The range of Icon and Luxury wines, including the much-anticipated 2017 Grange, which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, joins two new Cabernet-Shiraz Superblends as they are released on the UK market today (7th October). Decanter was among the first invited to an exclusive preview tasting in July earlier this year.

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 – released 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.
