Penfolds ‘g3‘

Penfolds has unveiled its latest creation, a multi-vintage blend of three vintages of its top label, Grange – the 2008, 2012 and the yet-to-be-released 2014 – that costs A$3,000 (£1,755) a bottle. Called ‘g3’, head winemaker Peter Gago said he expects it to attract controversy.

Famously known around the world for its Grange, a multi-vineyard and cross-region blend, the ‘g3’ is almost triple the price of a bottle of ‘ordinary’ Grange. Broadly, Grange 2008 is a “big bold wine”, Grange 2012 is about “elegance and sophistication”, while 2014 is a “young wine that serves to freshen up the blend”, while the 2014 vintage is yet to be released. The three vintages are then blended and aged for one year in barrel, then in bottle.

Gago said: “Put simply, it’s Penfolds’ house style distilled. Penfolds g3 is a natural end result of the venerated art of blending. It is a blend where each individual vintage selected delivers a depth of character and flavour honouring our flagship Grange”.

Just 1,200 bottles of g3 have been produced, and it is not a wine that is going to be released every year, Gago noted, but hinted that for its next release, Penfolds could go back 15 years into its reserves.

RRP: A$3,000.
