This lot contains Five bottles of Penfolds 1997 Grange from South Australia, matured for 18 months in American oak hogsheads.

'A vintage, we were told, that was 'overshadowed by huge years on each side'. It may have been overshadowed for years, but it is just great right now! Seductive texture, like sea-polished driftwood. Cedar and dark fruit and graphite and iron and touch of wild thyme. Very elegant. Shadowy but a wine with subtle strength. Early-morning campfire. Smoke and pepper. Perhaps the least rich of the five Grange vintages, but the one wine where port-sweet fruit stepped back to allow so much more complexity of herb and spice to come to the fore. I thought that this was quite special. And so lovely for drinking now. 18.5/20 points' Jancis Robinson MW November 2021
