1975 Penfolds Bin 95 Grange (Red Wine Clinic 2002)

RRP:$600.00
1 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka Review
The final vintage from the master Max Schubert. Now a gorgeous garnet red in colour, the ’75 is showing a beautiful combination of leather, spice, liquorice and cherry with sweet charcuterie characters rounding of this striking wine. History in a bottle. NB: This actual bottle went through the Penfolds re-corking clinic in 2002 to guarantee this will be an exceptional bottle.

Winemaker's Note
The year Max Schubert retired from his post of Chief Winemaker, although he remained a consultant to Penfolds and kept an office at Magill until his death in 1994. He was succeeded as Chief Winemaker by Don Ditter, who had worked with Penfolds as a winemaker since 1946. Penfolds 1975 Grange won two gold and five other medals at Australian wine shows between 1976 and 1981.

Appearance: Garnet red.

Nose: Sweet, leather, spice and meaty aromas with some intense liquorice, almost porty nuances.

Palate: Rich and concentrated with ripe, tobacco/berry fruit and touches of spice and leafiness. Quite extractive and bitter tannins make the wine a very muscular style. Could soften out.


Reviews and Accolades


"Deep brick red. Intense aniseed/liquorice/dark berry/mocha aromas with some minty/graphite/rustic notes. The palate is chunky and concentrated with blackberry/mocha/graphite/minty/bitumen flavours underlying miso-soup notes and gravelly, dry tannins. Finishes savoury, grippy firm and long. Sound but unrefined. A 'dark horse' vintage. 90% shiraz, 10% cabernet sauvignon. Kalimna Vineyard (Barossa Valley), Barossa Valley, Coonawarra blend. A cool summer was followed by a mild, dry vintage."
