98 Points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
As a five year-old, dense vivid red – impenetrable almost to the rim. Unmistakably Grange – formic, ripe, pungent, confronting. The core has darker elements of soy, cola, peat, coal-dust, Dutch black licorice with sesame, seaweed, and quince paste. Beneath, coffee-grind, mocha, and bitter chocolate (from oak?). Above, African spices coupled with a fleeting and appealing glacial waft.
Peak drinking anticipated 2014–2045.
At once, balanced and accessible; fresh and tight. A structural and textural continuum – no beginning or end, no gaps. Complete. In an attempt to define the palate profile. Flavors of dates, persimmon, roasted nuts… freshly baked pecan-pie, Portuguese custard tart. The oak is omnipresent yet neither prominent nor ostentatious -completely assimilated. The tannins are neither obstructive nor aggressive, yet effortlessly conveying flavors. Yes, maturation of 21 months in barrel and three years in bottle has molded quite the structural and tactile Grange package.
Blend: 97% Shiraz and 3% Cabernet
About Penfolds Wines :
Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines since 1844 and indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine. Since then a series of stand-out wines both white and red have been released under the Penfolds masthead.
Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker and only the 4th custodian of Grange, relishes the opportunity to bring Penfolds to the world stage and is an enthusiastic ambassador and natural educator. Penfolds came to the attention of the US market when 1990 Grange was Wine Spectator’s ‘Wine of the Year’. Since then, Penfolds Grange has become one of the most collectable wines of the world and was honored to grace the front cover, once again, of Wine Spectator, with declarations of Grange as Australia’s Icon
