No other red wine in Australia can rival the reputation, consistent quality or proven development pattern of Penfolds Grange. The pinnacle of the Penfolds red wine range - Grange is a rich, opulent, full-bodied Shiraz, destined for a long cellar life. The winemaking process involves great attention to detail, from selecting the best possible grapes sourced from low-yielding, old Shiraz vines, through to fermentation and fastidious oak maturation.
The unique and distinctive Grange style is based on ripe Shiraz fruit and stylish American oak in fine harmony. The 1992 Grange has great complexity and balance. It is powerful and rich with mouth-coating tannins.

"Deep crimson. Redcurrant, cassis, sage, herb garden aromas with some mineral notes. The palate is well concentrated with rich layers of redcurrant, sweet fruit, meaty flavours, fine-grained tannins and underlying mocha oak. Muscular dry finish. An elegantly structured Grange with plenty of fruit power and weight."
Complex with masses of concentrated plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit aromas and hints of leather, dark chocolate and spice.
The palate has intense, sweet, rich fruit with pronounced yet rounded ripe tannins. The wine has excellent structure and integration of spicy, earthy fruit and firm oak, finishing with great length of flavour.

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.
