1996 Penfolds Grange 75cl / 14%
A bottle of Penfolds 1996 Grange from South Australia, matured for 18 months in American oak hogsheads.
'Medium to full red-purple, still bright after five years, vibrant cherry and plum fruit aromas more than handle the oak on the bouquet; the palate is sumptuous, but not heavy, the cherry and plum flavours tracking the bouquet. The wine has a very long finish, with fine, integrated tannins. Destined to become one of the great Granges. 97/100' James Halliday, 2011
Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note general wear and fading to the front label. The lazy etching on the glass confirms the vintage.

We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults. Older bottles often contain sediment.
