Winemaker's Notes:

The 1993 Bin 128 displays attractive, crimson-red hues and excellent depth of color.

The nose is seductive and complex with rich spicy berry fruit, lifted by subtle ground pepper and violets. Soft, complementary French oak characters, although less overt than the fruit, support and enhance the nose.

The palate has classic Coonawarra varietal and regional character. Medium bodied in style, the wine has instant appeal with exotic pepper and spice evident together with rich, ripe, berried fruit and soft, vanillin oak tannins in perfect harmony.

About Penfolds Wines:

Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines since 1844 and indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine. Since then a series of stand-out wines both white and red have been released under the Penfolds masthead.

Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker and only the 4th custodian of Grange, relishes the opportunity to bring Penfolds to the world stage and is an enthusiastic ambassador and natural educator. Penfolds came to the attention of the US market when 1990 Grange was Wine Spectator’s ‘Wine of the Year’. Since then, Penfolds Grange has become one of the most collectable wines of the world and was honored to grace the front cover, once again, of Wine Spectator, with declarations of Grange as Australia’s Icon
