Soaring imagination, talent and sensitivity meld with innovation. The ampoule project by Penfolds storing the 2004 Kallima Block 42 Cabernet Sauvignon combines best of both worlds, paying homage to not only rare wine but also artisans and craftsmen of South Australia.
12 exclusive wine-soaked handmade vessels have been produced with sleight of hand for zhushing wine lovers. A winemaking team personally giving a special opening ceremony for the owner to remove the ampoule from glass plumb-bob casing using tungsten-tipped silver scribe-snap pokes your enthusiasm. Think about the art of glass making by Nick Mount and Ray Leake, wine preservation, fine metal work by Hendrik Forster and Andrew Barlett and exceptional casing design, all in one package to nip your taste buds into ecstasy.
