Penfolds Cellar Reserve Mataro is entirely sourced from the Penfolds historic Kalimna vineyard in the Barossa Valley. Planted in 1964, Block 25 has been an important source for many Penfolds Bin wines. The 2010 vintage conditions saw healthy vines delivering below average crops which resulted in wines with concentrated fruit characters and excellent colour depth. Matured in both seasoned and new American oak for a period of 16 months, this generous wine is a standout from this famous Penfolds block. Whilst drinking well at release, this wine will continue to improve with careful cellaring.
