Penfolds Grange, one of the legendary wines and the iconic wine of Australia. Shiraz grown in south Australia climate and soil produces intensely-flavoured, fully-ripe wine. Aged in American new oak for 17 months, pumping out fine grained tannins and great finish. This wine possesses all the qualities of any finest wine.
Exquisite! Stunning! Well balanced and nicely layered. Complex, almost like a taste of heaven. Medium pronounced, blackberries, cherries, plums, black pepper, vanilla, liquorice, hints of wood (cedar). Some cooked cherries from ageing. Dry, medium plus acidity, Hugh smooth tannins, medium body. Long impressive finish. Absolutely worth it. 1999 was a tricky year, March rain in Barossa. But this cannot be told from the wine. Tremendous amount of fruits and flavour length. Very outstanding!
Can drink now, also has the potential for ageing for a few more years. Drink it before 2025.
