Grange 2005

Sarah Ahmed, The Wine Detective

(88% Barossa, Mclaren Vale, Coonawarra)

A warm, dry harvest preceded by steady, continuous ripening produced well flavoured/structured grapes (95.9% Shiraz, 4.1% Cabernet Sauvignon).  Deep crimson with malty, savoury oak.  It melts in the mouth, with a lovely saturation of red plum, rhubarb, blackcurrant and cedary/sandlawood spice, showing a ripe, red-fruited sweet core as it opens up in the glass. Supple tannins ripple beneath – this is ever so discretely powerful at the moment.  Aged 18 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads.  14.5% abv.  RRP £190.
