VINEYARD REGION Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale
 
VINTAGE CONDITIONS Regular winter rainfalls ensured ideal soil moisture levels and healthy vine growth. Spring
and summer temperatures were amongst the lowest on record, which reduced yield potential, as well as slowing overall crop ripening to a crawl. A warm, dry autumn eventuated, which, combined with careful vineyard management, enabled the grapes to reach ideal ripeness.
 
GRAPE VARIETY Shiraz (99%), Cabernet (1%)
MATURATION This wine was aged for 15 months in new
American oak hogsheads.
WINE ANALYSIS Alc/Vol: 14.50%
Acidity: 6.90g/L
pH: 3.58
LAST TASTED 1.12.06
PEAK DRINKING 2012-2042
FOOD MATCHES Ideal with beef, duck and game.
 
Winemaker comments by
Peter Gago - PENFOLDS Chief Winemaker
COLOUR As a five year old at the time of writing, and just before its annual release, the wine is deep, dark and impenetrable.
 
NOSE At once Grange...oh, and the aromatics just happen to be compatible with that of Shiraz. As is its want, the aromas transform and complex across many planes, with air and over time in the glass. At first, a rich mix of dark chocolate infused with coffee bean and black liquorice, then scents of tar, aniseed, raw (pure) soy and black olive. Is
it oak, or a hybrid, \'barrel ferment\' character that can be captured as it oscillates in and out of this beguiling aromatic offering.
 
PALATE The palate is expansive, and yet finessed, balanced, highly defined, sleek. A continuum, an amalgam of dark berried flavours and textural sensations - deceptively accessible, yet a hidden largesse, untapped flavour and structural precursors threaten to ingress. 100% new oak is completely absorbed, meshed with ripe tannins,
completing a palate of impressive length and youthfulness
