    Winemaker Notes

    Crimson red. Energetic red fruits wrapped around a steely spine. Aromatics belie the wines regional composition. Ripeness has been swapped for pink peppercorn, white plum and the complexities of fresh Thai mint…more reminiscent of cool climate pockets around the world. Red mulberry and white chocolate offer sweetness. Raspberry and white chocolate generosity persists on the palate. Tannins appear effortless and enmeshed within fruit, namely white cherry and rhubarb. Oak sits in the background and layered behind crunchy acidity.

    Blend: 77% Shiraz and 23% Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Penfolds Wines, Australia
    Video 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.

    Considered the heart of Australian wine, South Australia is home to the nation’s most famous regions and oldest vines. Although vineyards occupy only a small part of the state’s extensive terrain—mainly in the southeastern corner—it is incidentally responsible for nearly half of Australia’s annual harvest.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
