Penfolds Grange 2009

98% Shiraz, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon

VINEYARD REGION Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Magill Estate

The 2009 Grange Shiraz is a comprised of 84% Barossa, 8% McLaren, and a little Clare Valley and a little Magill fruit with a small 2% of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. At this youthful stage, this deep garnet-purple coloured wine puts forward a vivid expression of blackberry preserve aromas amid underlying cassis, black cherry, spice box, char-grilled meat and chocolate box notes. Surprisingly medium to full-bodied (it smells much fuller!) with taut flavours that are very closed in the mouth, it has firm, chewy tannins to structure through the long and earthy finish.
