Estate Notes

Penfolds, Grange 1990 comes from fruit sourced from the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley and Coonawarra, and matured in 100% new American oak hogshead.

The Grange is one of Australia's finest and most famous 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.

"Magnificent, exotic, a veritable cascade of opulent flavors--earthy currant, black cherry and licorice--on a grand frame of incredible length, wrapped in finely grained tannins." Wine Spectator

"…notes of blackberry, brambly black fruits, a touch of game…perhaps a scintilla of ox blood. Good definition. The palate is full-bodied and appears to have put on a touch more weight. Very well balanced with smooth tannins and “exuberant” flavours of macerated red cherries, wild strawberry and a touch of peppermint, with the Shiraz continuing to impart that Northern Rhone-like finish. Superb."

"Unusually floral and perfumed, bursting with pristine aromas of small red and black berries, plums and fresh vanilla/cedar/coconut oak. Smooth and silky, long and fine, it’s saturated with translucent, perfectly focused small berry flavours tightly entwined by powdery tannins. Wonderfully long, slow to develop, and just beginning to reveal its genuine potential and surprising elegance." Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2012
