Back Vintage

Grange 1984

No other red wine in Australia can rival the reputation, consistent quality or proven development pattern of Penfolds Grange. The pinnacle of the Penfolds red wine range, Grange is a rich, opulent, full-bodied Shiraz, destined for a long cellar life. The winemaking process involves great attention to detail; from selecting the best possible grapes sourced from low-yielding, old Shiraz vines through to fermentation and fastidious oak maturation. The unique and distinctive Grange style is based on ripe Shiraz fruit and stylish American oak in fine harmony.
Taste Description
Deep crimson. Fragrant dark plum, praline aromas with vanilla, mocha nuances. Expressive dark berry, dark chocolate, roasted coffee, spicy flavours with superb tannin richness. Finishes chalky firm with plenty of sweet fruit flavour length. An underlying muscular structure. Not a classic Grange but still drinks very well in its fourth decade.
