   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.

Tasting Note:

The 1997 Grange (a blend of 96% Shiraz and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon) looks to be a classic Grange, although slightly softer and more forward than the backward 1996. The saturated purple-coloured 1997 offers a gorgeously sweet nose of blackberry liqueur, cherries, camphor, chocolate, plums, and mocha. The wine is opulently-textured, extremely soft, layered, and seductive, with Grange's tell-tale personality well-displayed, but in a seamless, seductive style.

Food Recommendation:

An excellent accompaniment with red meats, game and strong cheese.
