Overview

Overview

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.

Rewards of Patience

"Deep crimson. Complex dark chocolate, roasted chestnut, vanilla, herb aromas. A rich voluminous palate with saturated dark chocolate, mocha, malty, aniseed flavours and fine-grained supple tannins. Finishes chalky firm and long. A rich buoyant and ethereal Grange with tremendous substance and lasting power. A classic vintage."

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Rich and complex with flashes of green tea leaf and truffle, interlocked with freshly tanned leather and savoury notes, prune and stewed blueberry fruits. Enticing classy oak (cedar) elevated, yet not overstated, by smoky barrel ferment character.

Flavours and 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.

The Penfolds Team

The Penfolds Team

Key to the success of Penfolds has been a lineage of visionary winemakers. There have only ever been four Chief Winemakers at the helm of Penfolds – Max Schubert, Don Ditter, John Duval and Peter Gago, each a custodian of a rich winemaking tradition that goes back for more than 170 years.
Our current Penfolds winemaking team has more than 100 years between them as Penfolds winemakers. They are constantly refining and improving their work, whilst honouring the winemaking techniques of their predecessors.
