Penfolds Special Bin wines have a special place among Australian and international wine collectors as each release or bottling represent a milestone in the progress of the modern Australian wine industry.

In celebration of the label’s 175 years wine-making heritage, a new, rare wine from the 2016 vintage — Special Bin 111A Clare Valley Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016 — was released.

It has been almost 10 years since Penfolds last released a Special Bin wine, made only in extraordinary circumstances, representing the pinnacle of wine-making endeavour using the most exceptional fruit parcels from the very best regional sources.
