  • $880.00*

Penfolds Grange displays fully ripe, intensely flavoured and
textured Shiraz grapes in combination with new American oak.
The result is a unique Australian style that is now recognised as
the most consistent of the world's great wines. The Grange style
is the original and most powerful expression of Penfolds' multivineyard, multi-district blending philosophy
Winemaker comments by Penfolds Rewards of Patience VI
Edition, 2008.

Colour:
A deep, crimson red with a dense ruby core.

Nose:
Immediately engaging, with wafts of nutmeg and ginger amongst notes of blueberry and blackcurrant and a background of well-seasoned savoury oak. The fruit gains in the glass with
aeration, when more subtle perfume and chestnut complexities emerge.

Palate:
Already showing excellent balance within the frame of a beautifully interwoven mesh of dark plum and blackberry fruits with fig and liquorice. Complex fruit and spice flavours sit against a finely focused backdrop of firm but rounded tannins.
