Weingut Penfolds-Grange. Weingut Penfolds Neue Welt Australien Shiraz Weingut Penfolds Grosse 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The Penfolds Grange is arguably Australia's most famous wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. Grange boasts an unbroken line of vintages from the experimental 1951 and clearly demonstrates the synergy between Shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia. Penfolds Grange displays fully ripe, intensely flavoured and textured Shiraz grapes. The result is a unique Australian style that is now recognised as one of the most consistent of the world's great wines. The Grange style is the original and most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy. The flavour pool primarily highlights Satsuma plum conserve alongside rhubarb, aniseed, fennel, with liqueur chocolate shyly awaiting mid-palate. There is a definite tannin structure from the oak, nevertheless this wine is balanced, firm, polished. The first sip welcomes, the second sip asserts, the third... submission!

  Tired of boring old wines from Australia? No? Then you can probably thank Penfolds Wines. Penfolds, founded in 1844 by Mary and Dr. Penfold (Mary gets top billing since she took care of most of the early management and winemaking responsibilities), has completely revolutionized not only its own product lines throughout the years, but also many wines in Australia as a whole. The wine produced by Penfolds was originally prescribed as tonic wines for anaemic patients, with the wine made from Grenache. By 1870, with 60 acres under vine, they were producing many more wines. In the 1920s and 1930s, Penfolds was known for its fortified wine, like many other wineries in the area. 1943 marked the start of a massive expansion for Penfolds Winery, with first the acquisition of Auldana Vineyard and its winery, and then the purchase of Kalimna Vineyard in 1945. By the end of the decade, they owned vineyards in McLaren Vale, Griffith, the Hunter Valley, and Minchinbury. Around the same time, winemaker Max Schubert returned from oversees with a completely new vision for the future of the winery. In the 50s, he started experimenting with the red wine he called Grange, which is a mix of primarily Shiraz and a little Cabernet Sauvignon, and by the 1960s the wine had spread across the Australian wine industry. Not wanting to stop with merely one of the most successful wine projects in the history of Australia, Penfolds Wines started the “White Grange” project in the 1990s, leading to the immensely popular and publicized release of the Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay. Peter Gago became their Chief Winemaker in 2002, and he, along with three winemakers in charge of red wine and one in charge of white, continue the tradition of experimentation and evolution.

Intensives, dunkles Rot, mit violetten Reflexen. Fruchtig-blumiger Auftakt, erinnert an Aprikose, Mandeln, Waldbeeren und Gewürze. Reiche Struktur, feine Tannine, langer Nachklang.

Düfte erinnern an süsse Soja und Quitte sowie Fenchel und Ingwer. Im Gaumen an dunkle Likörschokolade, gepaart mit marokkanischen Gewürzen. Die Tannine verleihen dem Wein eine eindrucksvolle Länge.

Konzentrierte Aromen ummanteln die Zunge und parfümieren den Atem bereits Sekunden nach dem ersten Schluck. Das Resultat ist ein einmaliger und einzigartiger Wein, der jetzt zu den Weltbesten zählt!

Supple, refined and focused, this is generous with its ripe currant, blackberry jam and fresh cherry flavors playing against grace notes of coffee, tar, white pepper and molasses. The finish keeps hovering and gets richer with each sip. Lip-smackingl... Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2005 Penfolds Grange 750ml

Grange Bin 95 2005 - Penfolds : Grange Bin 95 2005 - Rotwein von Penfolds Dem Grange wurde der Heritage Icon, offizieller Titel Südaustraliens, verliehen. Grange Style bedeutet meisterlicher Blend. Die Trauben kommen aus verschiedenen Weinbergen in unterschiedlichen Distrikten. Daher steht er für ein breites Aromen-Spektrum und für ein exzellentes Handwerk. Die ideale Mischung zu erhalten und das Beste aus jedem Wein herauszuholen, ist eine Herausforderung für den Meister.Im Glas leuchtet der Wein tiefrot. Das faszinierende Bukett entfaltet Noten von blauen Früchten. Das Aroma ist ausgewogen, komplex und zeigt Noten von süßem Sojaöl, Cola und Quittenpaste zu einer Schicht ätherischer Noten, darunter Fenchel, Anissamen und Melassepudding mit frischem Ingwer.Am Gaumen begeistert der Geschmack dunkler, mit Likör gefüllter Schokolade, kombiniert mit marokkanischen Gewürzen. Darunter liegen mineralische Noten von Graphit und Teer, begleitet von Fruchtaromen wie Quitte. Ein Wein des Labels Grange mit würzigem Spektrum und einem überzeugenden, lang anhaltenden Abgang.    Der Grange Bin 95 2005 von Penfolds passt zu Wildente (für Hugh Johnson geradezu ein "must") oder saftig geschmortem Rindfleisch, zu Lammbraten, zu kräftigen Käsesorten oder zur würzigen Zigarre.Weingut: PenfoldsLand: AustralienRegion: Barossa ValleyRebsorte: 96% Shiraz, 4% Cabernet SauvignonInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 7,0 g/lRestsüße: trockenLagerfähigkeit: bis ca. 2050Fassreife: in Barriques gereift (16 Monate)Auszeichnungen für den Penfolds Grange Bin 95 2004:98 Punkte Wine Spectator, Oktober 2009 Barossa Valley
