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 »

  • 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

  • We do have a great selection of Aussie wine.  My wine-drinking buddy told me some statistic about Alberta importing more Aussie wine than anywhere (per capita).  I'll have to check the facts though!  A great government liquor store near me has plenty of Penfolds and some Grange.  They had four bottles of the 2008 Grange (100 pts) for $599 cdn, a...

  • Just finished tasting Ballabourneen The Stuart 2013 Chardonnay (Australian Wine Selectors Hunter Valley Series January 2014 dozen), bottled under screwcap.
