Ausgewogen und gut zugänglich, frisch und straff. Ein Struktur-und Texturkontinuum,kein Anfang und kein Ende, keine Lücken. Aromen von Datteln, gerösteten Nüssen und frisch gebackenem Kuchen. Die Eiche ist allgegenwärtig, doch weder vorstehend noch protzig - vollständig eingebunden. Die Tannine sind nicht aggressiv sondern stützen die Aromen. 21 Monate im Fass -und drei Jahre Flaschenreife haben das strukturelle Grange Paket geformt.


Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2007 Penfolds Grange is comprised of 97% Shiraz and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon coming predominately from Barossa vineyards with smaller proportions from Magill Estate and McLaren Vale. It was matured for 21 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads. Very deep garnet-purple in color, the nose is intensely scented of vibrant blueberry preserve, mulberry and kirsch aromas over hints of cedar, mocha, vanilla and anise. The full bodied palate is richly fruited with pure black berry and baking spice flavors offset by crisp acidity and a firm level of velvety tannins, finishing long. This is quite an opulent, forward Grange, which is very tempting to drink now, though of course will reward at least 5-10 years of cellaring and should keep to 2030+...95" WA 05/12 "Full crimson, with a purple rim; a blend of 98% shiraz and 2% cabernet sauvignon that exudes power and authority; the bouquet is already complex, the American oak making an impact as it always does when Grange is in its youth, the palate with multiple layers of predominantly black fruits; the tannins, like the oak, need to soften, and should do so well before the fruit starts to fade...95" Australian Wine Companion 06/12 "Opaque ruby. A heady, intensely perfumed bouquet evokes cherry compote, cassis, violet, pipe tobacco and smoky, vanillin oak. Deeply pitched dark fruit flavors show liqueur-like power, with floral pastille, licorice and spicecake nuances building in the glass. Tannins come up with air but are quickly absorbed by this wine's lush fruit. Smoky and sweet on the finish, which lingers with outstanding persistence...95" IWC 07/12
