Penfolds is very proud to announce that the 2008 Penfolds Grange Shiraz has scored a perfect 100 points in Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
Not due for release until May 2013, the 2008 Penfolds Grange forms the cornerstone of the Penfolds annual Icon and Luxury release.
Penfolds Grange Shiraz has a long history of excellence since its inception by creator, Max Schubert in 1951 (experimental vintage). Originally criticized by wine experts at the time, Penfolds Grange gained acceptance when the 1955 was awarded Gold Medals at International and local wine competitions. Unlike any wine of its time, it changed the face of the Australian wine industry and went on to become a National Trust heritage – listed wine.
Along with the 2008 Grange, this year's collection includes five wines from the famed 2010 vintage.
