Winemaker's Notes:

Straw in color. Clean and fresh with citrus notes and lifted florals that give way to green melon and subtle spicy oak nuances.

A light to medium bodied Chardonnay with orchard fruits and citrus notes. A gentle creaminess provides texture on the palate while brisk acidity keeps the finish crisp and clean, with refreshing length.

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
