97The Wine Advocate

...puts forward a vivid expression of blackberry preserve aromas amid underlying cassis, black cherry, spice box, char-grilled meat and chocolate box notes.... firm, chewy tannins to structure through the long and earthy finish.

97James Halliday

...the bouquet has fragrant sweet and savoury spices, the palate with licorice and black fruits, oak riding high, but guaranteed to be relegated to second place as the wine comes into balance around '30.

95James Suckling

The depth & complexity on offer is straight up impressive, blue & black fruit aromas unwind, meaty at times, some dark green herbal notes & a cedary layer of oak lurking... a wistful Grange that, as always, faithfully reflects the vintage.

95Wine Enthusiast

Huge dill and vanilla aromas wrap around intense mixed-berry fruit, ending on notes of espresso and dark chocolate. It’s full bodied and richly textured... maintains the Grange standard of excellence.

94Wine Spectator

Aromatically pure, with beautiful focus to the blueberry, black currant, espresso and cream character. In the mouth this sprouts prickly tannins and picks up a distinct tomato leaf note that sends the wine in a different direction.

94Vinous / IWC

Intense spice & mineral accented aromas of cherry pit, blackberry & plum with smoke & floral qualities adding complexity.... zesty dark fruit & violet pastille flavors & hints of licorice and vanilla. Finishes smoky, spicy and very long...

18.5Jancis Robinson

Gorgeously seductive perfume: sweetly spiced – Christmas spice - fruit with the sweetness of oak but all so well entwined. There's a hint of tar and savoury character... Chocolate all the way. Freshness and really great length.


Australia, South Australia

South Australia is the nation’s most important wine region. South Australia is to Australia what California is to the U.S. About half of Australia’s wine comes from South Australia and many of the country’s most acclaimed producers are there. Wineries based in South Australia include Penfolds Grange, Torbreck, Amon Ra, Henschke and Jacob’s Creek. The prestigious Barossa Valley is located in South Australia, and is often compared to Napa Valley because it is gorgeous topography covered in grape vines. First farmed by 19th century German-speakers who immigrated from what is now Poland, the Barossa Valley is the crown jewel of the region. South Australia has widely varying climates, from very hot, dry areas to cooler, high altitude areas. There are more than 150,000 acres of vineyards in South Australia, with more being planted each month. Shiraz is king, though the region also produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Mourvedre, Chardonnay and Semillon.


Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
