Hand picked and whole bunch pressed to barrel before a wild ferment on solids with full malo. 9 months in French barriques. 40% new, 60% 1 year old oak. 13%. pH 3.15. TA 7.0g/L. $100.
Nutty and mealy, there is no escaping the classic Penfolds rambunctiousness, the flavours more ripe yellow peach this year, on a full and rounded palate. Despite the acidity this feels very full and ready to go immediately – it’s going to fill out quite quickly. Good, if not quite superstar length or finesse. Looked lesser compared to the Yattarna. 17.5/20, 91/100
