2014 Penfolds Grange Bin 95 75cl / 14.5%
A bottle of 2014 Penfolds Grange, Bin 95.
Grange was first produced by Penfolds winemaker Max Schubert in 1952 and is generally recognised as Australia's finest, and certainly most collectible, red wine.
This is bottle number AF386.
'The latest vintage of this iconic wine is more approachable and elegant than in previous years. This 98% Shiraz and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon blend offers an ocean of aromas: plum, mocha, coffee, tomato leaf, black olive, ground pepper, cedar, wet tarmac and sage. These tones swell toward a beautifully balanced palate that is powerful yet poised and silky in texture. The American oak is there but feels quieter than it has in the past, letting other nuances wash ashore, all held afloat by fine-grained herb and salt-flecked tannins. While other vintages seem untouchable in their youth, the 2014, with time in decanter, could offer immediate gratification yet still cellar well through 2044. Christina Pickard 97/100.' Wine Enthusiast, April 2019.
