Led by the 66th consecutive release of Grange, the 2020 Collection is a testament to the enduring House Style and winemaking philosophy passed down through generations of Penfolds winemakers.

The blend energetically entwines Grange DNA from the exceptional 2002, 2004, 2008 and 2016 vintages to create a completely unique expression of Penfolds flagship.
