Penfolds Grange 2003

Discover this Grange 2003


From humble beginnings in the early 1950's to the icon it has become today, Penfolds Grange is engrained into the wine psyche of wine lovers across the world. The vision of Max Schubert has born an Australian legend that is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. A multi-regional masterpiece that shows power, concentration and balance to showcase the very best in Australian wine. The 2003 was a challenging year relying strongly on multi-district fruit selection. The nose is complex, with rhubarb, elderberry, vanilla and aniseed aromas and a hint of tobacco leaf. The palate is sweet and fleshy with generous elderberry, black cherry and liquorice flavours, followed by malty American oak and fine, dry tannins. Finishes with a firm grip.Bottle image is indicative only

Wine Variety | Wine Vybe

Shiraz Wines

Shiraz, also known as Syrah, is a red grape variety widely grown around the world, particularly in the Rhône Valley of France and Australia. It produces full-bodied wines with high tannins and flavors of dark fruit, such as blackberry and plum, along with notes of black pepper, spice, and earth. The ABV for Shiraz wines typically ranges from 13-15%. Its popularity is due to its ability to produce rich, powerful wines that are both age-worthy and expressive of their terroir.

The varied soils and climates of regions like the Rhône Valley and Australia's Barossa Valley provide ideal conditions for Shiraz, allowing the grape to develop its characteristic intensity and complexity. Shiraz is often used to produce both varietal wines and blends, showcasing its versatility. The grape's potential for producing high-quality, distinctive wines that reflect the nuances of their growing region has ensured its continued prominence and popularity among winemakers and wine enthusiasts worldwide.

Critical Acclaim

Medium full red, faint purple. Smoky leathery slightly funky bouquet. Palate is dry and firm in tannin, a bit stern and savoury. Lacks charm. Very grippy and needs age. Liberal oak but balanced. Solid wine, deep and savoury, tannic and firm, drying finish. Not a charmer. Would keep, though.
