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: 2014 - 2045

Blend: 97% Syrah & 3% Cabernet Sauvignon

Vineyard Notes: Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Magill Estate, South Australia.

Vintage Notes
The 2007 vintage was challenging with low winter temperatures threatening severe frosts and accompanied by low winter rainfall. Dry conditions persisted throughout the growing season and unusually high summer temperatures followed, which placed pressure on water resources and fruit exposure. Low crops and the resultant fruit ripened relatively quickly and was selectively and successfully harvested earlier, parcel by parcel, pursuing full flavours, structure and balance.

Producer Tasting Notes
COLOUR As a five year-old, dense vivid red—impenetrable almost to the rim. NOSE Unmistakably Grange—formic, ripe, pungent, confronting. Core: darker elements—soy/cola/peat/ coal-dust/Dutch black liquorice with sesame/sea-weed/quince paste. Beneath: coffee-grind/mocha/ bitter chocolate (from oak?). Above: African spices coupled with a fleeting and appealing glacial waft. PALATE At once, balanced and accessible; fresh and tight. A structural and textural continuum—no beginning or end, no gaps. Complete. In an attempt to define the palate profile... Flavours: dates, persimmon, roasted nuts … freshly baked pecan-pie/Portuguese custard tart. Oak: omnipresent, yet neither prominent nor ostentatious—completely assimilated. Tannins: neither obstructive nor aggressive, yet effortlessly conveying flavours. Yes, maturation of 21 months in barrel and three years in bottle, has moulded quite the structural and tactile Grange package.
