1987 Penfolds Bin 95 Grange
1 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka ReviewThe 3rd Grange to be made by John Duval, this is a lighter style that is ready to drink now and in the peak of it's life. Lots of pleasure to be had in this mature wine.
Winemaker's NoteNo other red wine in Australia can rival the reputation, consistent quality or proven development pattern of Penfolds Grange. The pinnacle of the Penfolds red wine range, Grange is a rich, opulent, full-bodied Shiraz, destined for a long cellar life. The winemaking process involves great attention to detail; from selecting the best possible grapes sourced from low-yielding, old Shiraz vines through to fermentation and fastidious oak maturation. The unique and distinctive Grange style is based on ripe Shiraz fruit and stylish American oak in fine harmony.
Appearance: Dense brick red in colour.
Nose: Typical of Grange showing strong rich, berry fruit and minty characters with smoky oak overtones.
Palate: Full, firm, rich palate with excellent concentration of sweet plum and cherry-like fruit, vanillin oak flavours and soft, mouthfilling tannins.
Reviews and Accolades
"Medium crimson. Intense menthol/dark chocolate/mocha/meaty aromas. Sweet, fleshy mocha/dark chocolate/minty flavours, underlying malty new oak and sinewy/sappy tannins. Finishes very firm and dry. 90% shiraz, 10% cabernet sauvignon. Kalimna Vineyard (Barossa Valley), Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale blend. A cool vintage marked by October hailstorms and variable yields."
