Grange is arguably Australia’s most celebrated wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. Grange boasts an unbroken line of vintages from the experimental 1951 and clearly demonstrates the synergy between Shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia. Grange utilises fully-ripe, intensely-flavoured and textured 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. The Grange style is the original and most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district, blending philosophy.

Color: Deep red.
Nose: Captivating, complex, complete.Unravelling aromatics unfurl with air - blue fruitnotes entwined with barrel ferment andmaturation elements; nothing singular, always intandem. Sweet soy, cola and quince paste highnotes escape from an ethereal layer (aniseed,fennel and fresh treacle ginger pudding) waftingabove.
Palate: Dark and liqueur chocolate, laced with Moroccanspices. An underlying tar/graphite blackness islifted by derived fruit/quince pie flavours - a fewyears earlier they may have been more brashlyvarietal and elemental. Pronounced tanninssweep across the palate, although they arecertainly part of the wine, never obtrusive.Long, layered and compelling, this wine is at thespicier end of the Grange spectrum.
