A long time between drinks, the last Cellar Reserve Cabernet Shiraz was the tiny, yet unforgettable 1993. The tradition of innovation and experimentation is central to Penfolds and is perpetuated in the form of Penfolds Cellar Reserves. These one-off releases emerge periodically when experimental wines are deemed appropriate for public release. The wines do not necessarily fit into any particular genre and provide Penfolds winemakers with the freedom to strive for new styles and definitions of excellence in their expression.
Coonawarra experienced a dry and slightly warmer summer than usual during growing season 2005% The grapes ripened evenly and early. Overall, perfect vintage weather with no rain offered a great opportunity to make wines of classic varietal character and longevity. 2005 in the Barossa Valley saw a good budburst and fruit set, followed by favourable growing conditions. Harvest was early by about two weeks due to the temperate conditions, allowing for steady, continuous ripening. Warm, dry conditions prevailed during the harvest period. Red varietals show exceptional flavour and structure. This wine was matured in 100% new American oak hogsheads. Alcohol 14.0%
TASTING NOTES
Impenetrable purple. This is an archetypal Penfolds nose of yore - stylish ripe fruit aromas with ethereal barrel ferment characters hovering above..aka Kenyan dark roasted coffee/mocha. Ripe fig, fresh liquorice and an oscillating Cabernet and Shiraz interplay make for, as they say, a classic Australian Red aromatic offer. The palate is tight, solid and firm. Flavours are textured and layered - talc-like, grainy, fine tannins interweave with raspberry and other red fruit notes. With air, cinnamon and demi-glace pan juices slowly arise, although it is clear that not all is yet revealed. The 100% new oak is seen, but not heard. This wine demands a big glass, and when young more than a double decant.
 Penfolds
Penfolds was founded by a young English doctor who migrated to one of his country's most distant colonies a century and a half ago
Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold was born in 1811, the youngest of 11 children. He studied medicine at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London, graduating in 1838. Like many doctors before and since, Dr Penfold had a firm belief in the medicinal value of wine. Before he left Britain he had obtained vine cuttings from the south of France and these were planted around the site of the modest stone cottage he built with his wife, Mary, at Magill on the outskirts of Adelaide in 1845. The couple called this house The Grange, after Mary's home in England. Penfolds»
