Penfolds, Grange is Australia’s most iconic brand and for those who are not familiar with the wine simply known world over as ‘Grange’, here as some key facts:

  • Penfolds estate founded in 1844.
  • Penfolds, Grange was first produced in 1951 by Max Schubert to rival Bordeaux’s Grand Cru Classé
  • Was named Grange Hermitage until 1990.
  • Grange is a multi-vineyard, multi-district wine. Grapes are sourced from various locations in South Australia.
  • Estimated numbers of Grange are between 5,000 to 15,000 cases annually, depending on the vintage. (Penfolds never release actual production figures, hence estimate)
  • Grange is regarded as one of the world’s leading estate, a First Growth from down under!

The release of the 60th vintage of Grange has coincided with a ‘luxury world tour’, which showcases the estate amongst a ‘big stakes’ clientele of wine enthusiasts in New York, LA, Canada, Singapore, Japan, Thailand & Shanghai all before Christmas. The value of diversification cannot be underestimated in this market, with different regions marketing their respective powerhouse wines in their own unique character. However, how does Grange match up against similar status wines from other regions?

Tasting Notes

The 2010 Grange arrives with much expectation and does not disappoint. This is a powerhouse, structurally superior to both the 2009 and 2008 vintages and breathtakingly dense, long and precise. The nose has cola, blackberry, vanillin, hard brown spices of all kinds, coal smoke, meaty charcuterie elements and a strong tarry, savory note that speaks of the 85% Barossa Valley componentry. The palate has super deep tannins that fan out through flavorsome black fruits. These are purposeful tannins; they bristle on the palate, tantalizing and assertive yet playful, strong not aggressive. The power here is the thing; this has mouth-coating density and terrific drive, so tightly coiled, it gives enough away to suggest a very, very long cellaring wine is here. This is a classic Grange that will please the serious collectors. A wine of genuine pedigree. Better in 2026.

Score: 100

James Suckling,, October 2014

The 2010 vintage for Grange is an indispensable addition to a wine portfolio, given the global output of the brand and the long term benchmark vintages. Grange has been a standout performer against the wider market, the index of its last 10 vintages climbed 65% over a 5 year period at the end of 2013. With growth of 50-100% anticipated over the next 5 – 10 years, we would encourage all existing clients to consider allocating at least 1 case at this first tranche release.
