Penfolds Grange 2005

"A small 2005 vintage Grange make - understandably no quality compromise. With its DNA at 88% Barossa, this Grange belies most 2005 vintage-chart implications" Peter Gago - Penfolds Chief Winemaker

VINEYARD REGION Barossa, McLaren Vale & Coonawarra
GRAPE VARIETY 96% Shiraz, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon
MATURATION This wine was matured for 18 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads
COLOUR Deep, dark garnet
NOSE At once Grange - a tightly wrapped projection from the glass of dark-berried Barossa fruits coupled with a myriad of barrel ferment complexities. Thereafter, a burst of honey-cured jamon / pancetta aromatically thrust above, with a rich mix of generously basted roasted meats, peat & nutmeg anchored beneath. Upon sitting / air these characters descend, revealing beguiling elements of freshly turned volcanic earth and an innocent suggestion of oldgrowth forest floor underlay.
PALATE The flavour pool primarily highlights Satsuma plum conserve alongside rhubarb / aniseed / fennel, with liqueur chocolate shyly awaiting mid-palate. Oak absorbed and hidden, not so the muscular tannins, power / extract. Nevertheless balanced, firm, polished. The first sip welcomes, the second sip asserts, the third... submission!
