Tasting Notes

Penfolds Bin 95 Grange Shiraz, or Grange as it's known to most, is Australian wine royalty. The equal of any 1st Growth or Grand Cru. The architect of the modern Australian wine industry, Max Schubert, first created his masterpiece back in 1951 and released his first vintage in 1952. Grange is a superbly perfumed and concentrated wine that combines the intense fruit and ripe tannins while extracting the nuances of new, fine grained American Oak after 20 months careful maturation. While 2005 produced a smaller crop than normal, 88% is Barossa born and the intensity of flavours will see 2025+.

COLOUR Deep, dark garnet.

NOSE At once Grange - a tightly wrapped projection

from the glass of dark-berried Barossa fruits

coupled with a myriad of barrel ferment

complexities. Thereafter, a burst of honey-cured

jamon / pancetta aromatically thrust above, with

a rich mix of generously basted roasted meats,

peat & nutmeg anchored beneath.

Upon sitting / air these characters descend,

revealing beguiling elements of freshly turned

volcanic earth and an innocent suggestion of oldgrowth

forest floor underlay.

PALATE The flavour pool primarily highlights Satsuma

plum conserve alongside rhubarb / aniseed /

fennel, with liqueur chocolate shyly awaiting

mid-palate. Oak absorbed and hidden, not so the

muscular tannins, power / extract. Nevertheless

balanced, firm, polished.

The first sip welcomes, the second sip asserts, the

third... submission!

Deep red purple, good colour for age. Sweet blackberry and blueberry aromas; oak not too dominant, seems almost fruit driven for a Grange. Chocolate, vanilla, cooked fruits, some coconut emerged with airing. Palate is balanced and not all that tannic, smooth and remarkably approachable. Youthful in mouth; remarkably fresh and charming fruit flavours; ideal ripeness. Tannins are finer and more powdery than expected, and subtly run the length of the palate. Good long aftertaste. An elegant, finer, more subtle vintage of Grange. - Huon Hooke 95 Points
