The Penfolds Re-corking Clinic is coming to town on 25-26 November 2008.
If you've got a Penfolds red wine which is 15 years or older, you can take it along to the re-corking clinic and get it checked out. If the wine is still ok, it will be topped up and re-capsulated. On the other hand, if it gets opened and it's not ok, you'll have to either take it home and try and drink it, or pour it down the sink (if it's really bad).
It's a terrific free service which Penfolds offers. You can also get a free appraisal of what the wine is currently worth on the secondary market from Langtons.
So if you've got some old Penfolds wine and you're worried about how it's been cellared, head along to the clinic at the Emporium Hotel. However, places are limited, so you'll have to pre-register through the Penfolds website. Registrations open on 15 September 2008.
