“There is not the slightest question this will be one of the greatest Granges.” – James Halliday 99

A Grange of remarkable power and finesse, this deep inky purple to crimson coloured vintage is a classic ‘iron fist in velvet glove’ style with seductive, inky, elderberry, blackberry fruit, leafy nuances and mocha oak.

An extravagant and expressive palate with saturated musky, inky, fruits with plentiful satin like tannins and underlying ginger. This is a classically structured and beautifully proportioned Grange with superb ageing potential.

“There is not the slightest question this will be one of the greatest Granges.” – James Halliday 99

A Grange of remarkable power and finesse, this deep inky purple to crimson coloured vintage is a classic ‘iron fist in velvet glove’ style with seductive, inky, elderberry, blackberry fruit, leafy nuances and mocha oak.

An extravagant and expressive palate with saturated musky, inky, fruits with plentiful satin like tannins and underlying ginger. This is a classically structured and beautifully proportioned Grange with superb ageing potential.

Drink between 2020 and 2060. 

99 – James Halliday, The Wine Companion

“… It has exceptional hue and depth to the colour; the smoky complexity to the black fruits (no red or blue) of the bouquet also offers licorice and earth aromas; only a great Burgundy could have more nuances defined each time you revert to the bouquet. You could lose yourself, Narcissus-like, looking endlessly into the reflection of the palate; for all its power, there is not a hair out of place, the tannins outstanding. There is not the slightest question this will be one of the greatest Granges in the pantheon of ’52, ’55, ’71, ’96 and ’06.”

About Penfolds Grange

Grange is arguably Australia’s most famous wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. Grange boasts an unbroken line of vintages from the experimental 1951 and clearly demonstrates the synergy between Shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia.

Penfolds Grange displays fully-ripe, intensely-flavoured and textured Shiraz grapes in combination with new American oak. The result is a unique Australian style that is now recognised as one of the most consistent of the world’s great wines. The Grange style is the original and most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy.
