Like Romanee-Conti, First Growths & Screaming Eagle, Penfolds Grange is rarely seen outside of bulletproof Plexiglas.  Yet, lo and behold, here’s a prime parcel of mint Grange capable of delivering a once-in-a-lifetime taste experience.

A super limited opportunity to score one of the real-deal top 5 wines on Earth!

How special is Penfolds Grange? The wine has been named one of the 12 greatest wines of the century (Wine Spectator), Greatest Wine of the 1970’s (Fine Wine) - and awarded 100 points numerous times.  

Act fast, we only got a handful of cases for the entire country!

About the wine

Much like the great wines of Ridge, Montelena and the First Growths, Penfolds avoids flash-in-the-pan status by creating great, classically styled wines year after year.  

And they’ve been doing so since 1844, isolating single vineyards and single blocks for special bottlings, which are the few permitted to carry the “Bin” designation.  Greatest of all of these is the pinnacle of Australian wine – the Penfolds “Grange” Shiraz – which is counted among the top 5 wines made on Earth.

From the very top all the way down, Penfolds carefully grows and raises their wines to reflect the taste of South Australia’s warmth and terroir, and to preserve the tradition that has been nurtured for 170 years.  

Few wineries anywhere can claim as profoundly excellent a track record as the legendary Penfolds.

"Very polished wine showing the evolution of Grange. This is dangerously approachable and absolutely you could drink it now. Svelte, precise and polished." Craig T.  

"Subtle fruit on the nose. OMG despite being so young this is like wow ... who would have thought it lives up to the hype. Smooooth. Complex. Savoury yet fruity. Soft. Yum." Crazy R.

Much anticipated vintage for Grange and it is a powerhouse of concentration and complexity. Aromas of orange and lemon peel to start, then graphite, blackberries, plum paste, black cherries, boundless sweet oak spice, fresh cedar, tar, mahogany, roasted coffee and chocolate - the list goes on. Such complexity. Classic Grange, offering such deep, dark intensity. The palate has immense richness and depth with a super succulent and very long, fleshy, deeply weighted array of dense, velvet-wrapped tannins that run so long. The fruit flavors sit in the blackberry, blood-plum and blueberry zone with succulent, long and assertive structure, carrying through in an utterly seamless mode. The finish is tightly wrenched, in spectacularly powerful style, locking this wine in for a very long haul. Best from 2030."

"Classic Great Grange with superb colour, density and tannin quality. A wonderful wine of huge presence and palate impact. Should outlive us all. A collector’s vintage.”

"Bang. The first whiff cries Grange. A lifted, fragrant, harmonious blend of fruit, oak (American, of course) and finely pitched tannins. Faultless. It's all relative, but this is starting to relax its grip. And the length is very, very special."

"The flagship 2015 Grange is a monster of wine and one of those rare wines that blends power and elegance perfectly. Revealing a saturated purple color, it’s seemingly more forward and seductive than past great vintages, which I suspect is due to the incredible purity of fruit as well as the wine’s flawless balance than any change in winemaking or stylistic shifts. I also think the acidity is healthy, and the 2015 tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol, which is certainly in the sweet spot, if not tame, for beautifully ripe Syrah these days. A blend of 98% Shiraz and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 20 months in new American oak hogsheads, it offers an extraordinary perfume of sweet crème de cassis, lead pencil shavings, camphor, Asian spices, licorice, and wildflowers. This is followed by a full-bodied, powerful yet incredibly seamless and elegant Shiraz that has no hard edges, a big, dense mid-palate, ripe tannins, and a great finish. Coming close to rivaling the 1986, which has always been a benchmark vintage of Grange for me, the 2015 offers a more polished, elegant, approachable style. Vintage comparisons aside, this is a legendary example of Grange in the making. The savvy wine lovers out there will give this 7-8 years of bottle age (I’ll probably be out of bottles by then) and enjoy over the following 2-3 decades."

"The nose of the 2015 Grange features the wine's characteristic lifted aromas, joined by pronounced American oak influence and bold blackberry fruit, plus hints of red meat, raspberries, asphalt and vanilla. It's dense and concentrated on the palate, full-bodied yet balanced and firm, with a rich, velvety texture and long, plush finish. Don't expect great complexity at this stage—it's much too young to show much more than the primary fruit and oak elements—but this is a Grange that should easily go three or four decades."

97 points, Wine Spectator
"Distinctive and powerful, yet still elegant, showing restraint despite the dense and generous flavors. Precise notes of dark chocolate, maraschino cherry, mahogany and toasted coconut complement the core of wild blackberry and blueberry fruit. The tannins are smooth and polished, delivering some tug on the finish, which persists as subtle hints of dried lavender and white pepper linger. Drink now through 2040."
