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: 2009 - 2038

Vintage Notes
Good winter rains and soil moisture levels led to a very good early growing season. Growth was vigorous and flowering was successful however the onset of exceptional heat in January depleted soil moisture, and vineyards without water suffered. Rain in mid-March provided relief and vineyards produced shiraz with excellent, ripe fruit flavours.

Ageing: This wine was aged for 17 months in new American oak hogsheads.

Critic tasting note: "Penfolds Grange is not a wine I often enjoy drinking young. I find it far too massive and lacking in elegance. The 2001 changed my mind in a hurry. It's full bodied, rich, sweet, ripe and packed with waves of juicy berries, but the wine is balanced, round, open and even refined. Tasted blind with about 30 minutes of air, it was already showing well, and like all great wines, it kept getting better in the glass. Interestingly, this is one of the few vintages of Grange produced from 100% Shiraz. 98 Points" - 98/100Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider
