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 1989 Grange Hermitage is already beginning to show some attractive maturation characters and is developing a little sooner by comparison to its more robust 1988 and 1990 counterparts. Sourced from premium vineyards in South Australia, the 1989 Penfolds Grange is predominantly Shiraz with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon. It has the typical solid structure and strength of character to age gracefully over the next decade or so, with correct cellaring, to produce another classic Grange.
