The Rawson’s Retreat range of wines was affectionately named after our founder’s family cottage which he built in 1845, one year after he planted his first vineyard on the property. The quality of all Penfolds wines understandably go unquestioned. Fantastic ripe fruit characters shine through in the Rawsons Retreat range that are made to be enjoyed now. Their Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect example with its tropical fruit and round flavors.
