Tasting Notes

Tasting Note


Color
Deep red
Nose
Varietally correct, with all the right ‘ingredients’ – dried herbs, tobacco, mint, rosemary and thyme.
Familial aromas of cold roasted lamb, dark olive and pulpy tomato attest to regional and varietal parentage.
Oak? Just.
Palate
An olive savouriness sitting over a powdery coffee-ground base are the fi rst two fl avour/textural descriptors that register…
Then, blackcurrant, mulberry, boysenberry fruits complemented by a tomato puree sweetness.
The friendly mix of trans-Atlantic oaks is handled very well (34% new).
Finishes clean and long, courted throughout by compliant Cabernet tannins.

Winemaking

Peter Gago - Chief Winemaker

Peter joined the winemaking team in 1989, initially in the craftsmanship of sparkling wines, before moving on to reds as Penfolds Red Wine Maker. In 2002 Peter became the fourth ever Chief Winemaker for Penfolds. Together with his fellow winemakers, Peter’s careful custodianship has ensured that Grange and the other ‘older’ members of the Penfolds family, have continued to set the benchmark for their style and quality, while new additions to the range push the boundaries ever wider.

Vintage

2014 Vintage

Above-average winter and early spring rainfall offered the vines in South Australia healthy soil moisture profiles for the growing season. Late spring and summer were dry and warm setting significant heat records. Warm weather prevailed during summer and throughout veraison, allowing grapes to develop evenly and with good flavour intensity. These warm conditions came to an abrupt halt in the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale in mid-February with significan4rainfall allowing for long, slow and optimal ripening of the fruit. Wrattonbully had a warm and generally dry ripening end to the season allowing the development of strong varietal flavours.
