Winemaker Notes

As a five year-old, dense vivid red - impenetrable almost to the rim. Unmistakably Grange - formic, ripe, pungent, confronting. The core has darker elements of soy, cola, peat, coal-dust, Dutch black licorice with sesame, seaweed, and quince paste. Beneath, coffee-grind, mocha, and bitter chocolate (from oak?). Above, African spices coupled with a fleeting and appealing glacial waft.

Peak drinking anticipated 2014–2045.

At once, balanced and accessible; fresh and tight. A structural and textural continuum - no beginning or end, no gaps. Complete. In an attempt to define the palate profile. Flavors of dates, persimmon, roasted nuts... freshly baked pecan-pie, Portuguese custard tart. The oak is omnipresent yet neither prominent nor ostentatious -completely assimilated. The tannins are neither obstructive nor aggressive, yet effortlessly conveying flavors. Yes, maturation of 21 months in barrel and three years in bottle has molded quite the structural and tactile Grange package.

Blend: 97% Shiraz and 3% Cabernet

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 97
Wine Enthusiast
This is dark and concentrated, as you might expect from Australia’s most heralded wine. Oaky scents of maple syrup and vanilla frame hints of mint and superintense dark fruit. On the palate, it’s a huge, tannic behemoth that needs 10 years of cellaring, but it delivers plenty of pleasure now in its ultraclean flavors of blackberries, baking spices and vanilla.
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Penfolds Grange is comprised of 97% Shiraz and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon coming predominately from Barossa vineyards with smaller proportions from Magill Estate and McLaren Vale. It was matured for 21 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads. Very deep garnet-purple in color, the nose is intensely scented of vibrant blueberry preserve, mulberry and kirsch aromas over hints of cedar, mocha, vanilla and anise. The full bodied palate is richly fruited with pure black berry and baking spice flavors offset by crisp acidity and a firm level of velvety tannins, finishing long. This is quite an opulent, forward Grange, which is very tempting to drink now, though of course will reward at least 5-10 years of cellaring and should keep to 2030+.
JH 95
Australian Wine Companion
Full crimson, with a purple rim; a blend of 98% shiraz and 2% cabernet sauvignon that exudes power and authority; the bouquet is already complex, the American oak making an impact as it always does when Grange is in its youth, the palate with multiple layers of predominantly black fruits; the tannins, like the oak, need to soften, and should do so well before the fruit starts to fade. Follows the Grange pattern, with 21 months in the 100% new American oak in which it finished its fermentation. A good grange, but not a very good/great one.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Ripe and inviting, with the richness and expansiveness to support the juicy plum, currant, blackberry, pepper and licorice flavors stylishly, lingering expressively on the focused finish. Best from 2015 through 2022.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
From a hot vintage with litter winter rainfall to ameliorate the drought conditions, the 2007 Grange has plummy sweetness and touches of fruitcake that show the season. It's a wine that delivers its power with gentleness, with an intriguing mineral aspect to the tannins and some tartness to the cherry fruit that sustains a sense of freshness in the midst of the wild ripeness. An impressive performance and a formidable wine in a challenging year.

Penfolds Wines, Barossa Valley, Barossa, Australia
Image of winery
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.

Barossa Valley

View all wine

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as 1860. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, purple juice.

Syrah/Shiraz

View all wine

Marked by unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah accounts for a good deal of some of the most intense, powerful and age-worthy reds in the world. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah still achieves some of its maximum potential here, especially from Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie.

Syrah also plays an important component in the canonical Southern Rhône blends based on Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, adding color, depth, complexity and structure to the mix. Today these blends have become well-appreciated from key appellations of the New World, namely Australia, California and increasingly, with praise, from Washington.

In the Glass

Syrah typically shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper and even bacon, smoke or black olive. In Australia, where it goes under the name Shiraz, it produces deep, dark, intense and often, jammy reds. While Northern Rhône examples are typically less fruity and more earthy, California appears increasingly capable of either style.

Perfect Pairings

Flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb, grilled meats, spareribs and hard, aged cheeses are perfect with Syrah. Blue cheeses are perfect with a dense and fruit-driven Australian Shiraz.

Sommelier Secret

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” winemakers throughout the world have adopted this synonym for Syrah when they have produced a plush and fruit forward wine made in the Australian style. As an aside, Australians are also fond of tempering their fruit-forward Shiraz by blending with Cabernet Sauvignon, which adds depth and structure.
