100 Points, The Wine Advocate
“Pale tawny-brown in color and exuding an incredibly complex nose of walnuts, gingerbread, Manuka honey, treacle / molasses, plus tons of earth notes that show nuances of bark, loam and fungi and later-emerging wafts of exotic incense and spice notes of sandalwood, cloves and spice cake, the Penfolds Series Two 50 Year Old Port is a very big, rich and intense Port-style wine with a wonderful array of aromas and flavors, a crisp line of acid and an epically long finish.”
The 50 Year Old Rare Tawny is a symbol of Penfolds heritage, typifying collaboration and shared creative expression.
Amongst the many individual components captured in this wine is the 1915 vintage, reported to be the foundation of the first Grandfather cask. Additionally, the 1940, 1945 vintages, the first two commercial releases of the Grandfather (in 1965 and 1969 respectively) and the first Great Grandfather release (1994). Incorporating the 1915 vintage component from Penfolds precious glass stock reserves means the Penfold 50 Year Old Rare Tawny carries a generic connection to the earliest recorded vintage of Penfolds Grandfather Tawny.
