Penfolds Grange


Australia

 

Penfolds Grange, an iconic red wine produced by the Penfolds winery in Australia. It was first produced in 1951 by winemaker Max Schubert. His intention was to create a distinguished wine with elegance and longevity in Australia to rival those from fine appellations in Europe, based on the techniques he picked up in Bordeaux, France. The wine is named for “the grange,” the childhood home of Mary, wife of 19th century winery founder Christopher Penfold. Since then, the wines have won numerous gold medals and prestigious accolades, and are highly valued by collectors. Bottles from older decades dating as far back as the first ones produced in the 1950s sell for stratospheric prices. The wines were originally labeled “Penfolds Grange Hermitage” until the 1990, after the European Union ordered the “Hermitage” dropped because of the place name shared with the Rhone appellation. 
 
The wine consists of a large percentage of Shiraz with smaller amounts Read more »

  • EM - That Pinot Noir looks very nice.  I shall look for a bottle out here ... an Australian (John Duval of Penfolds Grange fame) and some Chileans. The name is the old word for when all the continents were together. Very clever.  I was expecting more of an Australian Shiraz but this tasted much more of a Northern Rhone Syrah.  Nose of blueberr... Read More

  • Penfolds is one of the great Australian producers. Used to be you could get their wines for reasonable prices. The Grange was expensive, around $200 - 250, but the equally as good and often better St. Henri was around $50, Bin 707 was around the same price, and Bin 389 was around $20 or so. Those were all Shiraz, Cab, or blends of the two. For t... Read More

  • Let me start by saying I pretty much drink chardonnay from France or California. If it's 90% butter and little else, I'm out. If it tastes like lemon juice and weeds, I'm also out. If California, I'm looking for nicely developed fruit profile without so much oak that it taste like I'm sucking on a tree. I like Peter Michael chardonnay ***a lot**... Read More
