    Penfolds Block 42 Kalimna Cabernet 1996, Barossa Valley

    , ,
    Exceptional vintage conditions in the Barossa Valley in 1996 presented Penfolds winemakers with the opportunity to make this one-off, special bin wine in the tradition of the legendary Bin 60A, Bin 7 and Bin 90A. Penfolds Kalimna Block 42 was made from a single block - Block 42 - of the renowned Penfolds Kalimna vineyard, the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in Australia. The wine was made from the same 110-year-old patch of vines from which came Max Schubert's 1953 Grange Cabernet. Penfolds Block 42 is a captivating example of a single block of high-quality Kalimna Cabernet Sauvignon, featuring concentrated varietal flavours, complexity of balanced oak and a fine tannin finish. Buyers Commission of 15% excl GST applies to this item.
