Australia's most famous wine. Lowest price in Singapore.
This wine has impeccable provenance and has been stored in temperature controlled storage since release from the winery. There is a small imperfection on the top of the label.
Robert Parker “An impressive Grange that may ultimately prove to be underrated, like many wines from this vintage, the 1995, a blend of 94% Shiraz and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, exhibits a saturated plum/purple colour and a sweet blackberry liqueur nose intermixed with cassis, liquorice, and new oak. The wine is textured, jammy, full-bodied, with impressive levels of extract, glycerin, and black fruit flavours. It is long, ripe, with unobtrusive acidity and tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018.”
James Halliday "In the manner of all great stayers, has picked up pace markedly over the past year. Deeply coloured, ripe cherry, spice, vanilla and a hint of liquorice rumble through the bouquet; the palate is powerful and sustained by sweet tannins, the plum and black cherry fruit providing the core for the future."
Penfolds Grange is Australia's most celebrated wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. This wine has impeccable provenance and has been aged in temperature controlled storage since release.
1995 Penfolds Grange is the 45th consecutive vintage of this famous Australian wine. The wine is a blend of shiraz 94% and cabernet sauvignon 6%. Fruit for the 1995 Penfolds Grange was sourced from vineyards located in the Barossa Valley, including the Kalimna Vineyard and Magill Estate. It was a difficult vintage, but careful selection of intensely flavoured grapes from old shiraz vines produced a wine that exceeded vintage expectations. The 1995 Penfolds Grange spent 17 months in new American oak.
Penfolds Grange carries a "Bin" designation, referring to its storage location in Penfolds cellars while aging. 1951 was Bin 1, 1952 was Bin 4, and later vintages carried various designations. By 1964 the designation was standardised as "Bin 95".
