Acclaim:

"Penfolds Grange 2010 is... the greatest young Australian wine I have ever tasted." - Tyson Stelzer, International Wine & Spirit Communicator of the Year 2015.

Tasting Notes:

The 2010 Grange is a blend made from Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Magill Estate fruit that was aged 17 months in 100% new American oak hogshead barrels. Very deep purple-black in color, this is classic Grange - amongst the finest produced - replete with fresh, vibrant and youthful black fruit notes showing blueberry aromas and accents of camphor, anise and the slightest floral hint, plus a trace of oak in the background to lend a cedar-laced lift. Medium to full-bodied in the mouth, with a balsamic liveliness and an additional film of dark chocolate. This wine is very taut and finely constructed showing typically firm, grainy, uniform tannins, great concentration and wonderful persistence on the finish.

Blend:

96% Shiraz, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon
