2004 Penfolds - Grange

2004 Penfolds
2004 - Grange - SKU: 129284

A blend of 96% Shiraz and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, mostly Barossa Valley (and substantially Kalimna) fruit, with small percentages of McLaren Vale and Magill fruit too.  Powerful yet elegant aromas of blackberry, spice, liquorice, dried herbs and stewed plum.  These flavours follow through on to the palate, which is at once deeply flavoured yet bright and lifted.  Gorgeous, effortless depth of flavour, ultra-fine and persistent tannins and astonishingly fresh, gentle acidity.  Beautifully balanced, at once a show-stopper yet oozing refinement.  97 points, drink now to 2044 (June 2017).
