Tasting Notes

Tasting Note


Color
Youthful, bright/vivid pale-salmon Nose
An ascent of (textbook) grenadine fruits – Avec raspberry, redcurrant, blackcurrant and strawberry. Sans pomegranate. And the citrus - pink grapefruit / mandarin marmalade.
And the florals/confiserie – scents of Anis de Flavigny Violet Pastiles or Violets of Toulouse; lily.
Upon sitting – wafts of cherry jam, sorry confiture.
Palate
Inviting, exotic.
Balanced, with an overt freshness - crispness up-front, and a delicate dosage imprint on finish. Relaxed acidity, friendly effervescence.
Subtle mandarin and raspberry fruits impact immediately – over a flavour base of strawberry with pepper / Turkish Delight with pistachio.
Stylistically light on its feet and sprightly … its ‘Champagne character’ teasingly revealed upon sitting. Impatience? A second glass immediately beckons.

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.
