1995 Penfolds Bin 95 Grange
1 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka ReviewIf you like your Grange big and bold then 1995 is a vintage for you. This wine has the kind of concentration that only the the finest South Australian Shiraz can muster with layers of liquorice, blackcurrant, mocha oak and length to burn and that Penfolds class coming from every pore.
Winemaker's NoteThe 1995 Grange is the 45th consecutive vintage of the wine that carries the flag internationally and domestically for the Australian wine industry.
Created by the legendary winemaker, the late Max Schubert, Grange's weight and concentration can be traced to rigorous selection of intensely flavoured Shiraz grapes from mature vines in some of South Australia's finest vineyards. The quantity of Grange made each year is determined by the availability of grapes of the required quality and style.
Penfolds multi-region, multi-vineyard blending policy enables winemakers to reduce the impact of vintage variation to the point where experts the world over consider Grange to be among the most consistent of the world's great wines.
Appearance: Deep red.
Nose: Complex with masses of concentrated plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit aromas and hints of leather, dark chocolate and spice.
Palate: Displaying all the classic hallmarks one would expect of Grange, this is a full-bodied, richly flavoured wine with ripe, dark stewed fruits and mixed spices with seamless, perfectly integrated oak and chewy tannins.
Reviews and Accolades
"Deep crimson. Intense blackcurrant/prune/liquorice/herb garden/mint aromas with fragrant savoury oak nuances. The palate is sinuous and long with cassis/prune/briary flavours, pronounced sweet gingerbread oak characters and dense, leafy, firm tannins. A difficult vintage. 94% shiraz, 6% cabernet sauvignon. Kalimna Vineyard (Barossa Valley), Barossa Valley, Magill Estate (Adelaide) blend. A period of drought and September frosts reduced potential yields. Warm, dry conditions prevailed until late March/early April when a cooler weather pattern marked by drizzle set in."
