In the world of wine, Penfolds is synonymous with excellence, innovation, and even a little magic. The tale behind the winery's foundation, its controversial methods of operation, and the characters who were determined to break with tradition and produce something unique is a truly inspiring one. But much more than just a history, this is also a practical working guide to enjoying your own collection of Penfolds wines at their drinking peak. Through the senses of an independent international panel, the fortunes of over fifty years of Penfolds wines were painstakingly tracked and assessed over a special five-day tasting. Complete with tasting notes and personal commentaries, the results of this event form a central focus of the narrative.
