Penfolds Grange ShirazKarnataka
With an unbroken line of vintages from the experimental 1951, Grange clearly demonstrates the synergy between Shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia. On the nose, an eruption of fruits. Dark coffee grind, malt and tapenade merge with black earths, almost verging on peat.
On the palate, initially the ‘enlivened’ dark fruits of a Christmas pudding or boiled fruitcake mix demand attention. But there’s much more to complement these fruits – impressions of ironstone, graphite, iodine, black ink and a black pudding viscosity. Formidable meshed tannins, the oak has entwined itself invisible.
Certainly a wine of its vintage.
