    One of the world’s most famous red wines! Produced every year since 1951 when winemaker Max Schubert set out to make an Aussie red to rival the great Bordeaux reds from France.

    Grange is a very powerful, intensely flavoured red that is sought after by collectors across every corner of the globe.

    There’s been plenty of hype around this 2017 release of Grange and fully back up with two whopping scores from Aussie wine writers Huon Hooke and James Halliday…

    98/100 & Top Rank (Huon Hooke, The Real Review)
    “Very deep, dark, dense colour with plenty of purple in the rim. The bouquet is classic Grange, loaded with toasty-smoky-oaky scents of smoked-meats and toasted barrels, dried herbs adding an extra fragrance, and hints of five-spice, especially star anise. It’s very full-bodied and concentrated, powerful and long-lasting, but the tannins are beautifully crafted and supple, harmonious, and avoid any suggestion of astringency. The core of the wine is lusciously fruit-sweet and delicious, the robe of tannin complementary rather than domineering. The finish is tremendously long and satisfying. I can enjoy drinking this now: not usual with a new Grange release. A quite magnificent wine and a great Grange. (Barossa Valley & McLaren Vale. Only the 7th Grange to be 100% shiraz. 18 months in new American oak hogsheads)”

    97/100 (Tyson Stelzer, James Halliday’s Wine Companion)
    “Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale fruit. Matured 18 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads. The inky density and impenetrable presence that proclaim Grange are irrefutable, even in the cooler 2017 season, in which sourcing has been pulled back to the strongholds of the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. It’s all here: black fruits of every kind, licorice, dark chocolate, coffee bean, coal dust, even a suggestion of fruit-mince spice. A wall of Grange tannins hold back its immense force, as finely engineered as ever. The finish holds motionless for minutes, with a stature and presence possessed only by Grange, yet at every moment upholding statuesque poise, integrity, even tang in this cooler season.”

    This vintage is made up of 100% Shiraz (only the 7th ever Grange to be 100% Shiraz) with a recommended peak drinking period of between 2023-2057.

    Note: This bottle does not come in a gift box.
