This wine is immensely complex and powerful. The maturation Grandfather style relies on a fuller spirit for fortification and extended small old oak maturation to gain overall complexity and optimum balance.

Great Grandfather Rare Tawny is Penfolds rarest wine; only 1000 bottles are available each release. The first release, in 1994, deliberately comprised 1994 bottles

No of cases

Great Grandfather Rare Tawny was created in 1994 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Penfolds. Subsequent blending material has been sourced from stage six of the Grandfather Solera and individual batches of maturing Grandfather that are identified as having exceptional quality. These components are further aged before being blended and introduced into the Great Grandfather Solera. After an initial launch of exactly 1994 bottles to commemorate the year of its inaugural release, Great Grandfather is only ever released in limited quantities to ensure the age and quality of the style is never compromised. Individually numbered with a minimum average blended age of 30 years, Great Grandfather Rare Tawny delivers a beguiling mix of age, structure, strength and complexity with each and every sip.

A highly coveted gift, Great Grandfather Rare Tawny is beautifully presented in an exquisite gift box, including a Penfolds stopper and certificate of authenticity featuring the individual number of the bottle enclosed within.
