Quick Overview

Tawny to mahogany in colour, this delicious Tawny exudes concentrated aromas of rich fruit, caramel and barrel-aged rancio. With complex cedary development on the palate it’s intensely rich and nutty, with raisin and butterscotch sweetness, however, it is still quite light and fresh, very mellow and smooth.

The Penfolds Tawnies are made in Solera Systems (stacked blending systems) at Penfolds’ Kalimna Tawny Cellars. These wines are all aged in 300-litre hogsheads (oak barrels) that are at least twenty years old when they reach the Tawny Cellars, having been used for other Penfolds wines up until that point.

The maturation process deliberately takes place under corrugated iron. At the height of summer the temperature on the top stack can reach 55 degrees; while in winter, the temperature can fall below 8 degrees. These cyclic swings in temperature are vital to the maturation process, as evaporation, concentration and controlled oxidation are all a part of the complex nature of the aromas and flavours.

The combination of extended barrel maturation and the Penfolds tradition of excellence ensure Bluestone Rare Tawny has exceptional fruit richness, mellow aged complexity and great length of flavour.

Colour – Dark mahogany.

Nose – The nose is concentrated and well integrated displaying a fine balance of rich fruit, barrel-aged rancio complexity and an earthly spirit lift.

Palate – The palate has a rich fruit intensity balanced by a mellow, smooth mouth-feel due to the long barrel maturation. Rich raisined fruit, butterscotch and nutty complexity merge with lifted barrel-aged characters before a dry, cleansing finish.
