1991 Penfolds Bin 95 Grange Magnum
1 x 1500ml Bottles
Cracka Review1991 is a standout Grange vintage – not big and flashy like 1990 or 1998 – a brute of a wine but a wine with immense concentration and charm – a Cracka go to Grange if ever there was one. Lashing of spicy blackberry, kirsch fruit with sweet American oak, in a full bodied tightly knit package just starting to unfurl into it breathtaking best – a 40 year Grange and in magnum an absolute treat.
Winemaker's NoteBy international benchmark standards, Penfolds Grange has everything required of a great red wine: complexity, richness, balance and longevity.
Representing the pinnacle of the Penfolds red wine range, the 1991 Grange is one of the finest red wines made in Australia and displays lifted classic Grange character, perhaps more so than the highly acclaimed 1990.
Appearance: A glorious, dark, dense, red purple colour.
Nose: The rich bouquet shows an incredible depth of ripe berry spice, tobacco, mocha and green tea aromas with unmistakable Penfolds oak handling.
Palate: The palate has intensely concentrated, mouth-filling fruit flavours showing spicy, rich berry fruit and earthy characters with masses of ripe tannins and integrated oak, finishing with excellent length.
Reviews and Accolades
"Deep crimson. Substantial wine with dark chocolate/malty/liquorice/smoky/cedar aromas. Dense, multi-layered palate with abundant sweet fruit, saturated dark chocolate/plummy fruit, plentiful cedary/grainy tannins and ample toasted oak. Finishes with a chalky firm tannin slick. This is a bold and beautifully balanced Grange with immense concentration, refinement and extract. A long-haul wine which has slipped out of the shadow of the more famous 1990. A great vintage. 95% shiraz, 5% cabernet sauvignon. Kalimna Vineyard (Barossa Valley), Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale blend. A warm, dry year with even ripening conditions. Vintage started early."
