Penfold’s Great Grandfather Rare Tawny Port
With an average age above 30 years, Penfolds Great Grandfather Rare Tawny delivers a beguiling mix of structure, strength and length with each and every sip.
The Great Grandfather Rare Tawny was created in 1994 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Penfolds. It is a special blend sourced from the Grandfather Solera (that has an average age above 20 years) which is given additional old oak maturation. In addition selected batches from the Grandfather stocks that are of exceptional quality are identified and allowed to age separately before being considered for blending into the Great Grandfather final blend.
After an initial launch of 1994 bottles to commemorate the year of its inaugural release, Great Grandfather is only ever released in limited numbers to ensure the age and quality of the style is never compromised. With a core varietal selection of Mourvedre, Shiraz, Cabernet and Grenache (but not limited to these varieties), Great Grandfather Rare Tawny sources fruit from vineyards specifically selected for fortified wine production.
