Penfolds Red in Class of Own Grange 2005

Chris Shanahan, The Canberra Times

It has an inky deep colour, overwhelming aroma and flavour impact of ripe, dense, sweet fruit, mouth-flooding tannins, distinctive flavour of American oak and a buoyant lift. This is a great wine of rare dimension. Over many decades, it will mellow and grow paler, becoming more fragile and ethereal.

Grape varieties: 96 per cent shiraz; 4 per cent cabernet sauvignon
Region: Barossa, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra
Maturation: 18 months in new American oak hogsheads
Price: $500 - $550
