The most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy, Grange is arguably Australia’s most
celebrated wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. Crafted utilising fully ripe, intensely flavoured and
structured shiraz grapes, the result is a unique Australian style that is now recognised as one of the most consistent of the world’s
great wines. With an unbroken line of vintages from the experimental 1951, Grange clearly demonstrates the synergy between
shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia.

Deep, dark and bright

Benchmark. Automatically recognisable - formic and glacial higher notes – not quite as audacious as a fleeting perception of heady
spirit (á la Cognac), and yet not just simple V.A.
Beneath, a more familial oaked nuttiness (hazelnut?) recedes to reveal aromas of black licorice/anise/black olive.
A shroud of condensed glazed fruits surrenders to reveal a fresher disposition … a coulis of berries and stone fruits; boiled beetroot.
Unsurprisingly wafts of coffee-grind, pan-scrapings/jus also ascend, hovering over a persistent base of cold lamb fat and marrow.
Upon sitting, a sprinkle of lavender and exotic spices almost completes the aromatic package – well, at least for another minute or
two. And then …
Early days.

Cohesion, vigour, sheen, poise – four borders of a frame that structurally binds the lofty palate ambitions of this South Australian
Fresh and balanced. Neither exaggerated nor over-ripe – lively blueberry and other youthful blue/black fruits bely the maturation
timeline of this alluring blend.
Certainly befitting this style, unmistakable barrel-ferment characters are undoubtedly more pronounced on palate than nose.
If the mid-palate is somewhat formidable (ably supporting a thick/dense core), by contrast the back-palate is creamy and
caressingly endearing.
Indeed, expansive and full – washing away all ahead of it. Certainly persistent. Texturally, chewy/grainy tannins and just-right
acidity abet succulence and mouthfeel.
