The 1964 Grange won a trophy, four gold and three other medals in 1968 and 1969. Bottles labelled Bin numbers 95, 395, 66, 67 and 68. Appearance: Medium brick red. Nose: Fresh prune/molasses/leather/rustic aromas with touches of camphor. Palate: The wine is sinewy and dry with walnutty/leather/ prune flavours and fine, leafy tannins. It still has some sweet fruit and good flavour length, but the palate is beginning to dry up. Please note: **Like all our wines over 5 years of age, this bottle is sold as is. No returns or refunds accepted.**
Classic cigarbox bouquet, very complex and stylish, and suggesting a strong cabernet component. Elegant, a bit leaner than expected, and shows some acidity. A lovely wine in immaculate condition.
Very good vintage. Medium to full tawny/brown russet colour. Dark chocolate and roasted nut aromas. The palate is still intact enough to drink and enjoy, but has seen better days. Some alcohol heat on the finish and aftertaste. Just able to drink this, still.
Very light, coppery/grey tinted colour; almost a touch of pink. Shy, subdued, slightly candied, oxidised nose. Sour acidity and a touch of sweetness papering over the acid. Shrill and watery in the mouth, and lacks fruit: not a wine I want to drink.
Deep amber colour; oily in the glass with lots of legs. Candied citrus peel, citron, and increasingly as it sat in the glass, marmalade. Still alive and not that sweet: has possibly lost some of its sweetness with age. Great flavour, though. Honey, toffee and molasses, golden syrup, too. Delicious, and grew better and better in the glass.
Medium to light brick-red/tawny colour. Slightly tired old nose, but still sound. Earthy and old cellars, touches of caramel, licorice and roast meats, becoming more and more mushroomy as it aired. Definite licorice nuances. Good flavour intensity and life in the mouth. Still drinking quite well.
Slightly broken bouquet; a bit too earthy and animal, with a slight tired, almost stale aspect. Palate also breaking up and has lost much of its fruit now. Still, it's a good drink if taken by itself.
