If you’re heading over the ditch to Australia now that the borders are getting back to normal, make sure you have plenty of room in your bag for what you’re going to be hauling back. Penfolds has a slew of limited edition wines for you to try. If you aren’t planning on doing any traveling abroad, they still have a couple editions landing in New Zealand later this year, so keep these on your radar.
Whether you are cellaring or celebrating, you can’t go wrong with one of the Penfold’s offerings.
What do you get if you mix 2008, 2012 and 2014? One fantastic wine called the Penfolds G3. They’ve blended three Grange vintages over seven years and the resulting Penfolds G3 is a wonderfully complex and layered wine with peak drinking from now through to 2045. Only 1200 bottles of the Penfolds G3 exist and is only available in Australia, so best to add a visit to their Magill Estate next time your across the ditch.
While your stocks might not be going to the moon any time soon your wine sure can. The Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz in a rocket gift box is the perfect well, Gift AND wine. While Penfolds has a long heritage within the Australian wine industry, they have always been innovation-focused and future thinking. Always aiming for the stars you might say. This is also fitting because South Australia has a growing space sector that is making waves globally. This would be our suggestion for the wine to help celebrate the next satellite launch. Keep an eye out for this one when it is released in NZ later this year.
One superblend to rule them all! Sorry, whenever anyone adds “Super” to something, I get all Marvel on it but in this case Penfolds have a very good point (Editors note: They appear to have made a Lord of the Rings reference). This unique wine brings together two interpretations of the blend of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz sourced from unique parcels. The components were then aged separately in new American oak prior to blending. A wonderful journey and blend resulting in very special and limited wine. As with the Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz rocket gift box, this will be available in NZ later this year.
In keeping with the Marvel theme, the Superblend 802A Cabernet Shiraz has a hulky alter ego, the 1.5 litre Magnum. The perfect way to supersize your celebration. A super celebration if you will. Just a note though, this is not the wine to play second fiddle to a wedding, sports win or IPO, for the journey it has been on it should be the focus of the celebration itself. Again, this is only available in Australia, so make plans to pick up a bottle on your next trip over.
