"A small 2005 vintage Grange make - understandably no quality compromise.
With its DNA at 88% Barossa, this Grange belies most 2005 vintage-chart
implications" Peter Gago - Penfolds Chief Winemaker


VINEYARD REGION Barossa, McLaren Vale & Coonawarra
GRAPE VARIETY 96%
Shiraz, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon
MATURATION This wine was matured for 18 months
in 100% new American oak hogsheads
COLOUR Deep, dark garnet
NOSE At once
Grange - a tightly wrapped projection from the glass of dark-berried Barossa
fruits coupled with a myriad of barrel ferment complexities. Thereafter, a burst
of honey-cured jamon / pancetta aromatically thrust above, with a rich mix of
generously basted roasted meats, peat & nutmeg anchored beneath. Upon
sitting / air these characters descend, revealing beguiling elements of freshly
turned volcanic earth and an innocent suggestion of oldgrowth forest floor
underlay.
PALATE The flavour pool primarily highlights Satsuma plum conserve
alongside rhubarb / aniseed / fennel, with liqueur chocolate shyly awaiting
mid-palate. Oak absorbed and hidden, not so the muscular tannins, power /
extract. Nevertheless balanced, firm, polished. The first sip welcomes, the
second sip asserts, the third... submission!
