Winemaker's Notes

By 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.

Grape Variety: Shiraz (95%), Cabernet Sauvignon (5%).

Colour: 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.

Alc/vol: 13.5%

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
2010 holds a privileged position in the 60 year lineage of Penfolds Grange. In the context of recent tastings of many of the greatest vintages, 2010 attains new heights in its depth of black fruit presence and its structural assuredness. I adore 2008 Grange and, tasting them together, 2010 is even deeper and more vibrant, exuding another dimension of distinguished grace, precision, concentration, scaffolded structure and seamless, enduring persistence. There is a coiled reticence to the bouquet, skirting black plum, liquorice and dark chocolate, opening into breathtaking violet fragrance. The palate is unyielding, yet immensely structured. Magnificently voluptuous, yet elegantly coiled and bright. Silky and irresistible, yet untouchable and enduring. Tannins are a revelation, with a finesse and a chalk-fine texture impossible for such a resilient and powerful frame. Penfolds Grange 2010 is definitively on a plane of its own: the greatest young Australian wine I have ever tasted. A blend of 96% shiraz and 4% cabernet, from Barossa (85%), Clare, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Magill.

Matthew Jukes (2010 Vintage) says
This wine is utterly amazing in every way. It is also the finest Grange aroma I have ever had the pleasure of inhaling and this includes all of the older vintages I have tasted, too. This is a complete wine. Nothing more is needed and nothing here could be let go without detracting from the whole. It is perfect. It is also the essence of two very important and powerful entities – the legend that is Grange and also the mind-blowing vintage that is 2010. This means that it has Grange’s majesty tempered by the restraint, intensity, beauty and composure of 2010. It is very dark, intensely so, and yet this class of malevolence has never been so alluring. This is the finest wine I have tasted this year, not least because it meticulously hunts down out every single taste bud in your system urgently before hypnotising it for evermore rather than blasting it, senselessly, with a shotgun. Heavenly, enchanting, forthright and mesmerising it is a wine you simply must taste.
