1991 PENFOLDS - Grange

1991 - Grange - SKU: 126190

A blend of 95% Shiraz and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon from Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale.  A Grange destined to forever live in the shadow of its sibling of a year earlier, the 1991 Grange is a brilliant wine, and continues to show every bit as well as the legendary 1990.  Powerful dark chocolate, plum, red berries and liquorice aromas, sweet and lifted yet complex and intriguing.  On the palate the wine is seamless, perfectly balanced and refined in style notwithstanding its obvious power and depth.  There’s loads of plum, cassis, mocha, undergrowth and herbal flavours, firm yet very fine tannins giving the wine a powerful structure and tremendous depth.  Very complex, with layers of flavour building on the incredibly long finish.  A superb wine.  96 points, drink now to 2040.  (September 2020).


Note – very top of shoulder.
