Grange is the benchmark by which other Australian reds are often measured. Grange is decadently rich with layer upon layer of flavor that coats the tongue and generously lingers minutes after swallowing. Abundant aromas leap from a glass of Grange and defy the typical adjectives used by wine tasters. These are
hedonistic aromas of rich, ripe fruits and spice, yet with an
'otherness' of which wine tasters speak of in hushed tones.
Grange blossoms with 15 to 20 years of bottle age and better
vintages can live and continue developing for decades.
Winemaker comments by John Duval

Colour:
Vibrant plum red.

Nose:
A fusion of blackcurrants, blueberry and boysenberry fruits lavished with cinnamon and sweet spices. Closer inspection suggests earthy, savoury aromas laced with roasted chestnut and fresh barrel fermentation richness.

Palate:
Concentration, power, flavour and balance - archetypal Grange! Masses of berried fruits, yet as with many of the classic releases, a blueberry fruit core. One of the classic vintages of the 1990s that sits alongside 1990, 1991 & 1998.
