Perfect condition. Still young with charming nose of liquorice, menthol, fine leather and a touch of vanilla and mocha coffee. Tannins are not fully resolved. Fantastic!

Latest release. Very young but great potential. Deep texture and full body. Keep it in cellar for at least 5 years.

Resolved dark fruit. A hint of American oak. Dark blue fruit, candied orange peel, menthol. Mature and serious. Lovely

The 2014 Penfolds ‘Grange’ Shiraz is an absolutely stunning new wine that embodies precision, power and finesse. An ultra-ripe dense core, this 2014 Shiraz opens with intense tar, Turkish coffee, blueberry pie and sandalwood accents that round out this seductive nose. The palate is plush and inviting, showing off a downright sexy mouthfeel. This wine seamlessly glides across the mid-palate, delivering blackberry cordial, sweet pipe tobacco, anise and creme de cassis flavors that connect with the wonderfully refined tannins. Massive, yet showing a beautiful sense of elegance and place, this incredible new release will cellar marvelously for decades. Drink 2020-2045- 98

Floral nose with back drop of smoke, you could smell this all day. Mouthful of Black olives, dark berries, nuances of blackberries and smoked bacon note penetrate the entire palate. Soft tannins that sail on and on...has endless years ahead of it.

Holy F!! This was just firing on every single cylinder. Bright red and black fruits that are so ripe and delicious. Balsamic reduction, bacon, tar, iron, earthy goodness and a silky baby bottom smooth finish. A real wow wine. Co WOTN for me. Crickey!! @Michael Meyer this was a treat.
