Australia's most celebrated wine, Penfolds Grange is the epitome of Australian wine royalty, and a heritage listed icon of South Australia. Max Schubert, the man responsible for the creation of Grange, first made what is now the flagship Australian wine back in 1951, and now has an unbroken line of vintages stretching over 60 years. Only the very best vineyard sites are utilised for the creation of Grange, the result of which can be seen in the 2009 vintage. Big, strong flavours of mocha and chocolate are intertwined with dark fruits like plums and blackberries. The tannins are firm and grippy in its youth, but are nothing but balanced and well integrated. Destined to go down as a classic Grange vintage that will reward the patient cellarer in spades.
