K&L Notes

Penfolds Grange has been Australia's premier wine offering for decades, and has won numerous accolades. With vintages that go back to the 1950s, Grange is highly sought after by collectors. It is even listed as a "Heritage Icon of South Australia." Wine Advocate's Neal Martin gives 94 points to the 1990: "Tasted at the Fine Wine Experience 'Dream Fourteen' tasting with Peter Gago, the Grange ’90 is a blend of 95% Shiraz and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from Barossa, Clare Valley and Coonawarra, matured for 100% new American oak hogsheads. Sourced directly from Penfolds’ library reserves, the 'Grange' 90 seems to have barely aged since we last met in 2006. Once again, the nose demands coaxing but eventually reveals notes of blackberry, brambly black fruits, a touch of game…perhaps a scintilla of ox blood. Good definition. The palate is full-bodied and appears to have put on a touch more weight. Very well balanced with smooth tannins and 'exuberant' flavours of macerated red cherries, wild strawberry and a touch of peppermint, with the Shiraz continuing to impart that Northern Rhone-like finish. Superb. Drink 2012-2030+" (Wine Journal, 9/2010)
