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.
