The pinnacle of the Penfolds red wine range, Grange is a rich, opulent, full-bodied Shiraz, destined for a long cellar life. The winemaking process involves great attention to detail; from selecting the best possible grapes sourced from low-yielding, old Shiraz vines through to fermentation and fastidious oak maturation. The unique and distinctive Grange style is based on ripe Shiraz fruit and stylish American oak in fine harmony.

Comments by Don Ditter, Penfold's Winemaker
COLOUR Very deep, rich brick red.
NOSE Very ripe, sweet plum jam aromas. Vanilla and mint characters with a hint of leafiness.
PALATE Masses of delicious super-fleshy fruit throughout, very elegant and supple but undeniably a fullbodied wine with an assertive tannin finish.
