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.

Colour

Nose

Unmistakably, it is what it is. In a word, Grange. (Almost) all unleashed immediately upon the first splash into the glass - exuberant, lifted, flamboyant. An aromatic 'multi-cultural' chromatogram brazenly unfolds: First, enticing barrel ferment formics and balsamics, spliced with soy, tomato puree, black olive and liquorice (Dutch?). Then, the exotics - wafts of tiramisumascarponezabaglione (Italy?), replete with freshly roasted hazelnut and ground coffee beans (Kenya?)

Palate

Fresh and refined. Nervy. Red liquorice, gravy reduction flavours and black olive tapenade to the fore. And then, just so much more! Where to start? Compelling depth - weightyvoluminousfleshy - structurally complete and even throughout. A radiant inner sheen, yet still assertive - a film encrusted with dusty, softened tannins that coat tongue. Great length. A loss of innocence, as sculptured oak (purityclean) and a boundless array of red fruits, congeal into a darkened pool of (un)known and (un)savoury delights! Unashamedly and quite blatantly the wine of this year's Penfolds 2016 new releases! Enough said.
