Penfolds Father Grand Tawny 10 Year Old
About the Brand
The Penfolds Tawnies are made in Solera Systems (stacked blending systems) at Penfolds’ Kalimna Tawny Cellars. These wines are all aged in 300-litre hogsheads (oak barrels) that are at least twenty years old when they reach the Tawny Cellars, having been used for other Penfolds wines up until that point.
The maturation process deliberately takes place under corrugated iron. At the height of summer the temperature on the top stack can reach 55 degrees; while in winter, the temperature can fall below 8 degrees. These cyclic swings in temperature are vital to the maturation process, as evaporation, concentration and controlled oxidation are all a part of the complex nature of the aromas and flavours.
The combination of extended barrel maturation and the Penfolds tradition of excellence ensure Bluestone Rare Tawny has exceptional fruit richness, mellow aged complexity and great length of flavour. Comparable with the best ports from Portugal.
