Wine Of The Year

Case in Point

Penfolds1A

It’s difficult to believe that Penfolds turned 170 this year. To mark the occasion, the Australian winemaker has released a limited edition 2010 Bin 170 Kalimna Shiraz. Created only once before in 1973, the Bin 170 is a single block, single vineyard wine, but what’s making oenophiles really sit up are the seven imperial (or six-litre) bottles that come in a special oak and eucalyptus case created by David Linley—the Queen of England’s nephew and an eminent luxury cabinet maker in his own right. In addition to holding a hygrometer, bimetal thermometer and bespoke wine pourer, the stylish, handmade case is locked by a bespoke compass that’s opened by the longitude and latitude co-ordinates of Magill Estate, the home of Penfolds. £33,000 cost in bond from www.bbr.com
