The sheer reliability and age worthy reputation of Penfolds Grange down to the highly regarded Koonunga Hill have captured the imagination of several generations of wine drinkers and auction wine buyers.
Technical expertise, innovative and revolutionary winemaking philosophy and practice and a substantial back-catalogue of pioneering marketing ideas have contributed significantly to the development of Australian wine at almost every level. Langton’s Classic Penfolds Wine Auction – which closes on Monday 21st August 2006 — acknowledges and celebrates a remarkable Australian wine house.
At a recent “Single Bottle Club” dinner held at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney, collectors, sommeliers, wine merchants, wine writers, wine makers, the great and the good shared an extra-ordinary diaspora of Penfolds vintages going back to the early 1960s. For many the experience was something of a revelation or rediscovery. There is no other Australian wine company that could put on such a convincing and utterly unique extravaganza. Penfolds is a cornerstone of Australian wine heritage, the Australian secondary wine market and the great Australian wine cellar. The Penfolds Bin Range – released at almost every conceivable price point – is made for everyone who enjoys wine. Langton’s Classic Penfolds Wine Auction Catalogue comprises a wonderful array of vintages for laying down and drinking. It is just this wondrous diversity and ageless appeal — that sets Penfolds apart as the most democratic and egalitarian of all wines.
The catalogue comprises a comprehensive offering of Penfolds wines including a rare collection of Grange 1951–1994 , every single vintage from the 1951 to 2001. Also on offer are the impossibly rare “en primeur” imperials of 2004 Bin 60 A and 2004 Block 42 – the first time put up for sale at auction.
