The original and most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy, Grange is arguably Australia’s most celebrated wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. Crafted utilising fully-ripe, intensely-flavoured and structured 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. With an unbroken line of vintages from the experimental 1951, Grange clearly demonstrates the synergy between shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia. This release in 2021 commemorates the 70th anniversary since Grange was first made.

Blend: 87% Syrah & 13% Cabernet Sauvignon

Vineyard Notes: Barossa Valley (including Kalimna Vineyard), Clare Valley, Magill Estate (Adelaide), McLaren Vale.

Vintage Notes: An unusual season with a hotter than average summer followed by a mild but wet vintage.

Ageing: Eighteen months in new American oak hogsheads.

Producer Tasting Notes
COLOUR Medium red/purple. NOSE Complex, developing aromas with plenty of soft, slightly lifted, tobacco/berry/gamey fruit. PALATE Highly concentrated with rich, cedar/blackberry fruit, massive, firm, dry tannins and long flavourful finish. Tannins are too much at the fore at the moment, but could soften out over time.
