Penfolds Grange is 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 2019 release of Grange and fully back up with two whopping scores from Aussie wine writers Huon Hooke and James Halliday…
97/100 (James Halliday’s Wine Companion)
“97/3% shiraz/cabernet sauvignon; matured in new American oak for 19 months. A quieter release for the 2019 rendition of Penfolds’ world-famous icon. A little less of the formic and VA heft of youth in this showing and a bit more approachable as a result. Deep crimson in the glass with familiar characters of deep black berry fruits, plum compote and black cherry underscored with hints of baking spices, Calvados, espresso grounds, black olive tapenade, roasting meats, creamy oak, purple flowers and earth. Weighty and concentrated with classic Grange density of fruit and tannin; persistent, texturally flexing and long of finish. As per usual will cellar like a dream, but I think it will hit its drinking window a bit earlier than usual.”
97/100 & Top Rank (Huon Hooke, The Real Review)
“Very deep, dense, saturated red-purple colour that stains the glass, with a classic Grange nose of espresso coffee, tar, blackberry, dark chocolate and dried cranberry. Quite complex already with notes of various spices, dried herbs and underbrush. The wine is full-bodied and firm, with abundant tannins but not as formidably dense, thick and tannic as some vintages. Very intense and long. A very solid Grange, if not a great one. (3% cabernet sauvignon. Barossa, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra & Clare)”
This vintage is made up of 97% Shiraz and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon with a recommended peak drinking period of between 2023-2050.
