Port Club Reserve

In 1844 Christopher Rawson Penfold planted vines on the slopes of Magill to produce fortified wines. Penfolds is now proud to present a range of fortified wines that is a continuation of more than 160 years of winemaking tradition.

For nearly 60 years Penfolds Club has been one of Australia’s favorite choices of Tawny. Beginning life as Penfolds Five Star Club Tawny in the 1940s, this wine has grown with the nation.

COLOR Amber-brown with a dark red rim.
NOSE The nose is lifted with an attractive mix of dried fruit, vanilla, caramel and a touch of nutty aged rancio complexity.
PALATE The palate is rich and vibrant displaying ripe spicy fruit, toffee and walnuts framed by smoky oak with a lifted cleansing finish
