If you’re a champagne lover, you’ll want to try this new offering from an Australian winery.

Penfolds has released the first champagne made by an Australian winery in collaboration with independent champagne house Thienot.

The 3 champagnes were created from the house’s 2012 vintage. Champagne can only be produced in the Champagne region of north-east France, by law so the only way an Australian house can produce a champagne is in this way.

The Thienot house was established in 1985 and also includes champagne houses Joseph Perrier and Canard-Duchene in its portfolio. Thienot is Penfolds’ agent in France.
