Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum, it has a seamless, elegant texture, good concentration, notable purity of fruit, and a great finish. While it’s not a blockbuster, it shines for its complexity and terrific overall balance and just has loads of character. If drinking any time soon, give bottles a ...

Yields are on the order of an insanely low ¼ ton per acre. Aged three years in neutral, 500-liter barrels, it offers a similar weightless, elegant texture as well as beautiful notes of blackberries, currants, gamey garrigue, and olive tapenade. It’s more structured than the 2014 and I suspect will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for upwards of a...

On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and has lovely mid-palate depth, with melted tannins, fine focus and grip and a long, complex and absolutely à point finish.

2014 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!

It's opaque in colour, with dense aromas of plums and fruitcake, cloves, raw meat, and mint cake - truly complex if rather overbearing.
