Penfolds : Superblend 802.A 2018 Cabernet Shiraz

South Australia - Red Wine -

Penfolds Superblend 802A 2018 is the new era opened by Penfolds in 2021, two sister vintages A (available here) and B (available next year), from parcels historically destined for the very great wines of the House (including Grange). A rare limited edition, they prove once again the unique know-how and innovation of Penfolds Winery and its Cellar Master Peter Gago. 

About Superblend 802 A:

In the spirit of innovation and experimentation, Penfolds is excited to announce two new wines in the line, Superblend.  These wines are made with A-Grade Cabernet Sauvignon and A-Grade Shiraz from a wonderful harvest; the highest quality new French and American oak barrels... and that coveted ingredient, time. Two siblings, differently blended and aged in different environments. These two wines are immediately Penfolds, yet different ... propelling varied attributes that will challenge and engage. This rare duo will be released in two versions and is designed to be collectible.

The first release, Superblend 802.A Cabernet Shiraz is now available. Cabernet Sauvignon makes its structural presence felt comprising 68% of the blend, while the 32% contribution of Shiraz adds generosity. Shamelessly bold, immediately Penfolds.

This is the first release of a historic duo that is available now. The second release, Superblend 802.B Cabernet Shiraz 2018 will be available in late 2022. Customers who purchase the Superblend A will obviously have priority over the release of the sister vintage. 

The advice of 12 bottles: A new line of Superblend, two collector's vintages, some bottles produced solely for collection.
