Not yet rated | write a review

In the world of wine, Penfolds is synonymous with excellence, innovation, and even a little magic. The tale behind the winery''s foundation, its controversial methods of operation, and the characters that were determined to break with tradition and produce something unique is a truly inspiring one. Much more than simply a winery history, this guide is also a practical tool for enjoying a personal collection of Penfolds wines at their drinking peak. Through the senses of an independent international panel, the fortunes of over fifty years of Penfolds wines were painstakingly tracked and assessed over a special five-day tasting. Complete with tasting notes and personal commentaries, the results of this event form a central focus of the narrative. Now in its sixth edition, The Rewards of Patience is an invaluable companion for anyone who loves good wine. This special collector''s edition features a black silk-covered slipcase, with a tipped-in illustration debossed into the case. The book is a grey silk-covered hardback with silver blocked title on spine and front cover, a grey ribbon marker, and head and tail bands.
