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. 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.

Tasting Notes

When to drink
Long term cellaring of 20+ years
On the nose
Red and black liquorice, soy and malt, burnt vanilla marshmallow. Dark chocolate, wrapped in a satiny copha/beeswax candle-like coating. Supple oak nuances - dexterously integrated, no doubt compliments of barrel ferment (and our valued long-time Barossa cooper)
On the palate
Mouthfeel is creamy/velvety rather than blocky/chunky at this youthful stage in the bottle. Tannins are tight, creating a dense coating with a 'rusty' edge. Ebullient acidity, whilst lively and racy, is well-managed and protective. To borrow a recently read descriptor - 0cherry stone minerality.
