Penfolds is set release its highly-anticipated 2011 Luxury and Icon wines, including the 2006 Penfolds Grange, tomorrow (April 5).

Speaking exclusively to TheShout, Penfolds chief winemaker, Peter Gago, said this year’s release spans four vintages, but believes the strongest wines come from the 2008 vintage.

“Conditions leading into the 2008 vintage provided the perfect environment to craft classic and long-lived Penfolds wines,” said Gago.

  • 2006 Penfolds Grange RRP from $599
