Grange is arguably Australia’s most celebrated wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. Grange boasts an unbroken line of vintages from the experimental 1951 and clearly demonstrates the synergy between Shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia. Grange utilises fully-ripe, intensely-flavoured and textured Shiraz grapes. The result is a unique Australian style that is now recognised as one of the most consistent of the world’s great wines. The Grange style is the original and most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district, blending philosophy.

The 2007 vintage of Penfolds Grange was sourced from outstanding vineyards across South Australia. The fruit was fermented in the cellars at Nuriootpa, completing fermentation and 21 months maturation in new American oak hogsheads. Penfold Grange will develop further complexity and integration of flavour for 20 years or more under correct cellaring conditions. For optimum enjoyment, this wine should be carefully double-decanted prior to being served.

2007 is a thoroughly worthy Grange and an outstanding expression of a hot drought year, albeit the least vintage of Grange since 2003. The season is generally characterised by the drying tannin finish of drought stressed vines, but it is a credit to Penfolds’ fruit sources and winemaking polish that this deficiency is but a subtle suggestion here. A dense, viscous core of vibrant black fruit swirls with layers of signature Grange exoticity: black olives, soy, balsamic, crushed ants, cedar, liquorice and dark chocolate, lingering silky, seamless and mesmerisingly persistent. This will not be a long-lived wine by Grange standards, but it calls for at least a decade to bring down an impenetrable wall of Penfolds tannins. 97% shiraz and 3% cabernet from Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Magill Estate.  Price: $625; Rating: 96 Points; Drink: 2022-2027; Tyson Stelzer
