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.

Drinking Window: 2010 - 2040

Blend: 94% Syrah & 6% Cabernet Sauvignon

Vineyard Notes
Barossa, McLaren Vale, Magill, Padthaway
Vintage Notes
An exceptional vintage both in quality and quantity. After the drought conditions in 1995, much needed rains replenished the soils during the winter across most of South Australia. The growing season was dry and mild, allowing the grapes to set and mature slowly resulting in ripe, complex, elegant fruit
Ageing
Matured in 100% new American oak for 19 months
Producer Tasting Notes
COLOUR Vibrant plum red. NOSE A fusion of blackcurrants, blueberry and boysenberry fruits lavished with cinnamon and sweet spices. Closer inspection suggests earthy, savory 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.
