2013 Penfolds Grange - 100 points (Wine Advocate, Lisa Perotti-Brown)
The original and most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy, Grange is arguably Australia’s most celebrated wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia.
Crafted utilising fully-ripe, intensely-flavoured and structured Shiraz grapes, the result is a unique Australian style that is now recognised as one of the most consistent of the world’s great wines. With an unbroken line of vintages from the experimental 1951, Grange clearly demonstrates the synergy between Shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia.
'2013 is a succulent vintage for Grange, the hot summer has produced a wine of astonishing perfume and, for Grange at least, extremely silky tannins.' Justin Knock MW
