Australian Block 42 Cabernet Sauvignon on sale for $168.000 per bottle

Penfolds Wines, one of the the oldest wineries in Australia and one of the leading producers of Australian Wine has on June 28, released a limited edition of its 2004 Block 42 Cabernet Sauvignon, to celebrate the origin of this extraordinary wine.

It will be twelve limited edition Ampoules completely encased in hand made vessel, which is crafted and designed beautifully by world-renowned glass artist, Nick Mount. The ampoules have no cork or screw cap.

When the buyer decides to crack open the high-priced vintage, he or she will have to call out a senior member of Penfolds’ wine-making team, the only person with the correct training to uncork the prized bottle.

The wine expert will travel to wherever the customer is to remove the ampoule from its glass casing and open the bottle using a specially-designed device.

The wine, a 2004 Kalimna Block 42 Cabernet Sauvignon, is a rare single-vineyard wine which is only released in stellar vintages.

“There is something really magical about the 2004 Block 42 Kalimna Cabernet. It has an ethereal dimension and a saturated blackness on the palate, it’s extraordinarily perfumed with layer upon layer of flavour.” says the winemaker Peter Gago.

With 2004 Block 42 Cabernet Sauvignon, the buyers will get a unique ‘Making of’ booklet and certificate of ownership and authenticity signed by Chief Winemaker Peter Gago and all contributing artists. Cost: $168.000
