Superblend 802.A Cabernet Shiraz 2018 Gift Pack
This is the quintessential Australian blend made to a Grange quality level in a dazzling vintage. In celebration of its first release, we’ve created an exclusive gift set containing a bottle of this sensational red, and have thrown in a corkscrew, aerating pourer and Riedel decanter to take your experience to the next level. This is what the critics have to say about it…
- 98 points, “Stature, power and might… Superblend, A-class indeed!” – Tyson Stelzer
- 97 points, “Lovely classic Penfolds wine.” – Andrew Caillard MW
The team at Penfolds has created a Superblend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon and 32% Shiraz, sourced from unique parcels normally destined for their flagship wines. They then created two different interpretations: Superblend 802.A and Superblend 802.B. The latter was matured in French oak, while this one was aged in American oak hogsheads for 22 months. As a result, Superblend 802.A is unashamedly bold and brash. Described by Decanter as “a supersized wine of imposing proportions”, Penfolds Superblend 802.A 2018 presents intense notes of black cherry liqueur, crème de cassis, raspberry, blackberry jam, fig, dark chocolate, freshly laid tarmac, cola, chinotto, cigar box, mocha, fruitcake, crème brûlée, vanilla, mulling spices, liquorice, toasted coconut, caramelised nuts and a whiff of meat smoking on the barbeque. A stunning red for those who like the big, oaky and with the volume turned up to 11.
Penfolds is certainly Australia’s, and possibly one of the world’s, most iconic wine producers. Established in 1844, it boasts an enviable history that most wineries in the Old World would give their right arm for. Most famous for its flagship wine, Penfolds Grange, which is the very definition of Australian fine wine and the 1955 vintage was even described by Wine Spectator as one of the “Wines of the Century”. Penfolds owe much of their success to Max Schubert, their winemaker who travelled to Europe after World War II and came back with all kinds of secrets. His innovative, often multi-regional, blends have become part of the DNA of Penfolds, and now the wines are the choice of connoisseurs and collectors all over the world.
