Grange Bin 95 Shiraz 2004

Nice balance and grip. It seemed a bit more muted but had undeniable weight and substance. Excellent pairing with pepper crusted filet mignon. Cork completely fell apart on me but the wine survived! — 14 days ago

Bin 150 Marananga Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018

Referred to as the “Baby Grange,” blend of 57/43 Cab Sauv & Shiraz, aged for 12 months in American oak, partly in previous-vintage Grange casks. Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe black fruits, sweet and complex spice. On the palate juicy black cherry and blackberry flavors with notes of cacao and toasty spices. Well balanced with acidity, full ripe tannins, long ending with smoky spice, fruit well integrated with oak, drink over next 10 years+, will only get better. Tasted twice! Nice! — a month ago

Deep purple hue, I think we caught this bottle too young despite me owning since release. — 8 days ago

Grange Hermitage Bin 95 Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 1982

Absolutely stunning. Consumed on the eve of my 39th birthday. (I am an 82 and my birth year wines are becoming increasing hard to find. This one was purchased as a complete OWC from a private cellar and perfectly stored.)

This bottle was so fresh and immaculately stored. The cork came out beautifully. Dark dark color still. Right off the bat the nose screams PENFOLDS GRANGE with eucalyptus, tar, smoked meats and abundant DARK fruit. A gorgeous wine with years and years left ahead of it.

Tasted alongside 1982 Chateau Margaux from the cellar and we all found the 1982 Grange to be the superior wine. It left my mouth watering. Absolutely beautiful and one of the top two or three wines I’ve ever tasted of not the best

@David T hahah that $69 price tag was on the bottle when it was released in 1984/1985 making it about $19 more than the margaux at that time. I purchased a private cellar and these bottles hadn’t moved since they were purchased on release. Special stuff

Max's Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2015

Named after Grange creator, Max Schubert. Adelaide Hills developing as a premium region for Chardonnay. A modern nose of funky solids and nougat. Not a blockbuster on the palate but quite restrained and elegant with grapefruit and mineral notes. Someone like Penfolds cannot afford to make an average wine and this is anything but average. Great QPR for only $35. — 7 days ago

Bin 600 California Cabernet Shiraz 2018

A pleasant somewhat underwhelming nose. Vanilla and charred cedar on the palate, greenery, and spices. An inkling of residual sugar on the palate, but syncs nicely with the medium acid and medium tannins. Quite solid.

Bin 2 South Australia Shiraz Mourvedre 2012

Even though I’m a life long buyer and drinker of Penfolds I’ve had very little experience with Bin 2 which is a Shiraz Mourvèdre blend (89%/11%). Dusty Black cherry notes with a little raspberry. These aromatics carry through to the medium plus bodied palate finishing with grainy tannins. A little astringency at the end, probably because of its youth (in Penfolds terms at least). Could easily go for another 5 years but nothing wrong with drinking one now. — 17 days ago
