Estate Notes

Penfold's Grange is one of Australia's finest wines, officially listed as a heritage icon of South Australia: a wine of extraordinary dimension and power. It has maintained its place as Australia's most prestigious red wine over four decades, and each vintage is eagerly awaited by collectors both in Australia and overseas.

Prior to 1989 Penfolds Grange used 'Hermitage' in the label before the European Union banned it from using a recognisable French wine place name.

"Extemely spicy on the nose, with zingy berry and plum character coursing through the palate of typical Grange flavors. Chewy with tannins, but they're finely grained." Wine Spectator

"An attractive, conservative nose of blackberry, freshly rolled tobacco, undergrowth and a touch of leather. The full-bodied palate is nicely balanced with good acidity, perhaps straight-laced and unwilling to furnish the taster with an exciting vinous experience, but maintaining cohesion and vigour. Touch of cigar box on the finish. Fine."
