red winePenfolds La Grange Wine

“The most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy, Grange is arguably Australia’s most celebrated wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia.” - Penfolds.

Australia’s iconic red, Penfolds La Grange, is a deep, rich wine that is definitely worth trying. Penfold is the oldest wine brand in Australia, and the wine, Grange, is the most collectible wine on the continent. 

Bloomberg states, “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.” 

Grange is arguably Australia’s most celebrated wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. The wine is crafted using fully-ripe, intensely flavored, and structured Shiraz grapes, becoming a unique Australian style and now recognized as the world’s greatest wines. 

If you get the pleasure of sipping on a glass of Grange, you may taste flavors, including licorice, soy and malt, burnt vanilla marshmallow, dark chocolate, and supple oak nuances. For mouthfeel, creamy and velvety, with a ‘rusty’ edge from the tannins. 

South Australia’s wine regions experience cool and relatively wet winter and spring. This set the vines up with plentiful soil moisture for the growing season and mitigated the need for irrigation. Cool conditions extend the growing season, and summer rainfall helps to delay harvest. 

The drier and warmer weather is optimal conditions for grapes to finish ripening, develop deep color, and present a strong varietal character.
