  • Australian Wine Companion 95 points - "The grapes came from Wrattonbully, Padthaway, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Langhorne Creek, partially barrel-fermented before spending 14 months in 22% French (100% new) and 68% American (19% new, 16% 1yo, 43% seasoned) oak hogsheads. A very interesting wine; it's not until the finish of the palate and aftertaste that the leopard's spots become clear. From this point you need to work backwards to finally arrive (on reassessment) at the bouquet, which has developed the cassis and plum fragrance it initially lacked, likewise the juicy fruit of the mid-palate."
  • wine information
  • Deep red, dark core. The nose is initially not overtly Cabernet Sauvignon, emitting mixed scents of black olive, charcoal, meat, rosemary arching across a darkened veil of fruit. Oak aging porduces aromas of clove and cedar detectable as well. The palate is solid, and generous. Softened, integrated tannins, bereft of harshness, astringence. Oak presence suggested on nose is not as prominent on palate. A generous flavor amalgam of chocolate, smoked meats, black fruits, dates, fig.

  • 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
