Penfolds La Grange - A Wine Of A Lifetime

One of the great Australian wines of our time is the Penfolds La Grange, a deep, rich wine that is one of the most coveted wines. La Grange is produced by Penfold, which is the oldest winery in Australia. This wine can typically be found just minutes away from Sweet Biscuit Inn at Metro Wines.

About Penfolds La Grange

La Grange, which is officially designated as a South Australian Heritage Icon, is without a doubt Australia's most well-known wine. Shiraz grapes that are fully ripe, delicious, and structured are utilized to make the wine, which has a particular Australian flavor and is now rated as one of the greatest in the world.

It's no surprise that Bloomberg writes, "Unlike most of the world's iconic reds, it's a multi-vineyard, multi-district blend, yet it has a distinctive personality—and a great story."

If you prefer drinking Grange, you may notice flavors of licorice, soy, and malt, burned vanilla marshmallow, dark chocolate, and supple oak undertones. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with a tannin-induced "rusty" edge.

The winter and spring in South Australia's wine regions are cool and moist. This minimized the need for irrigation by supplying the plants with adequate soil moisture throughout the growth season. Rainfall throughout the summer prolongs the growth season and delays harvest.

The warmer, drier weather allows grapes to continue ripening, develop a rich color, and display their unique varietal characteristics.
