Penfolds Grange, Bin 95 , 2012

    Fred’s Tasting Note :   

“Complete. Stylistically, most closely aligned to the 1963 Grange and yet
stridently extolling its own personality.” as Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker would say .

I feel very lucky as i got to taste a few different vintages of Grange, and honestly , i won’t write lines of comment on this wine . It is an experience, also a budget, and probably for many people , a one time thing … but if you are a real wine lover , it is definitely a must try once in a lifetime !

 

FD Rated :  100/100

Cépage : 98% Shiraz, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon

Area : Blend of Shiraz from different areas , especially Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale. The fruit from these regions showcases excellent colour, concentrated flavour development and integrated tannins

Region of Production : Barossa Valley and MacLaren Vale, South Australia

The Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale regions were impacted with lower than average rainfall across the winter
period. This resulted in early budbreak in spring. Healthy and welcome spring rain ensued, merging with a
mild summer with just a few short periods of heat. Mild daytime temperatures and cool evenings were observed
across the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale, allowing impressive flavour development without inflated baumés.
Balanced canopies and crops provided even development throughout veraison across both regions. Bursts of
warmth and dry conditions continued throughout harvest allowing fruit to be picked in optimal condition.
Smaller berry and bunch sizes along with favourable weather conditions induced great results for traditional
quality markers-colour, tannin profile, fruit concentration and flavour depth.

Vinification :

Traditional vinification with very long ageing of 18 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads

Agriculture :  Classic
