Penfolds Grange Shiraz (1 Bottle) 2008 x1
SOUTH AUSTRALIA-BAROSSA VALLEY
98% Shiraz, 2% Cabernet.
Plum pudding pork rack, swede, quandong and desert raisin.
Matured for 19 months in new American oak hogsheads.
Impenetrable dark core.
An immediate and powerful lift of colasoyhoisinred licorice, propelled by tea-smoke and ferric influences. Less obvious nut-husktan-bark notes align with lush aromas of ripe (jamon-wrapped) figs and a panaforte plushness. With air, blueberry fruits and mocha arise, the oak (100% new!) remaining concealed - too much aromatic background chatter to register!
A muscular push across the entire palate from start to finish. Never oppressive nor ungainly, yet captivatingly forceful. A vinous lava flow of dark licorice and malt. This is molten, with a self-saucing chocolate pudding richness and blackberry, elderberry fruits.
Grange is arguably Australia's most celebrated 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 utilises fully-ripe, intensely-flavoured and textured 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. The Grange style is the original and most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district, blending philosophy.
