Penfolds is so famous it should be included in Australia's Oxford Dictionary. Seriously. Considered royalty, locally and on a global scale - there is no other producer in the world that has the reach, effect and influence on its fans quite like Penfolds - you can bet your money on that. Revered for their first-class reds and rich, long history, Penfolds was founded in 1844 by its namesake owner Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold and his wife Mary. Initially created and prescribed as tonics for anemic patients, Penfolds has come a very long way to the top. And in 170 years we wouldn't expect anything less. A magnificent and unparalleled producer that continues to grow from strength to strength we are proud to call Penfolds ours and as their saying goes from "1844 to evermore".
'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
