Penfolds Old Vine Grenache-Shiraz-Mourvedre 1997
Nose: Restrained at first, but with time in the glass spicy notes are revealed in balance with a savoury lift, giving way to freshly crushed hazelnuts and some florals.
Palate: A medium-bodied, elegant and balanced wine with an almost creamy fresh, uplifting mouthfeel. Soft, yet lively fruit flavours offer mid and back palate sweetness. Savoury (cold meats) and spice (musk) flavours linger with menthol on the finish. Lovely, almost silky tannins exist without the obtrusion of oak.
Serving and Cellaring Suggestions: Cellar over the medium-term to allow this wine to gain further complexity. Then enjoy with complex-flavoured, meat-based dishes (roast beef with mushroom sauce, for example).
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.
