Without the influence of Penfolds, the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer.

Penfolds’ reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend. But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times.

The Rawson’s Retreat range of wines was named after the founder’s family cottage which was built in 1845, one year after he planted his first vineyard on the property.

Tasting Notes

A Chardonnay in true South Australian styling: like sunshine in the glass! This wine is perfumed with enticing tropical fruit aromas, endowed with creamy textures and framed by a hint of oak. Forward drinking and affable, Rawson’s Retreat is balanced- showcasing good fruit, fine structure and controlled power.

    I had a bottle last evening with a great roast chicken meal as recommended. It was fantastic! A hint of citrus was different for a Chardonnay. One of the best wines I’ve tried from a Wine Wednesday promo.
