At Penfolds, the role of the winemaker is to make the best possible wine within the constraints of each vintage. Penfolds' house style emerged from a fortified-wine producing culture and evolved as a winemaking philosophy - a way of making wine - which has had a profound effect on the entire Australian wine industry.

The concept of multi-regional and vineyard blending, a feature of the Penfolds house style, is an amplification of the ‘all-round wine'. Without the constraints of a single vineyard, winemakers could choose the best possible fruit with the outstanding characteristics of each vineyard.

While American oak has played a central role in the development of Penfolds red wines, French oak has been increasingly used in the evolution of new wines - particularly RWT and Yattarna. Maturation in oak, which follows fermentation, is also key to the Penfolds house style.

The Penfolds approach to winemaking has percolated through the entire Australian wine industry over the last 50 years. The techniques employed in research and development of Penfolds wines are remarkable and many of the discoveries and innovations have had a lasting impact on winemaking thinking.
