Dedicated to Max Schubert 1918 to 1994
Grange is recognised as Australia’s and indeed one of the world’s finest red wines. Developed bt Max Schubert commencing with the 1951 vintage, It is made from low yielding Shiraz vines grown at selected vineyards in South Australia and matured in new American oak hogsheads prior to bottling.
During an extensive tour of Europe in 1950, Ma Schubert studied wine making practises that have now become an integral part of Penfold’s wine making techniques.
He also observed the practise of maturing wine I new oak barrels, a previously untried to Australia. The development of Grange represented the beginning of a new era in Australia’s wine making tradition. This knowledge combined with Max Schubert’s foresight, skill and dedication has resulted in Grange, the definitive Australian dry red wine, acknowledged to be among the worlds classic wine styles.
Grange is a wine specifically to mature in the bottle. It will develop greater complexity and integration of flavours for some 20 years or more under correct cellaring conditions.
Max Schubert always advocated the decanting of Grange. Ideally served between 14 and 18 degrees C.
