Penfolds-Grange-Shiraz-2004-750mL

Producer: Penfolds
SKU: 1510
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

Enticingly fragrant yet at once Grange - elements of cola, bay leaf, malt, Indian spices and nougat. An ethereal oriental lift of glazed Peking Duck is interspersed with fermented black Chinese tea.

 

Oak at one with the wine, other aromatics unite to create a continuum of spice and fruit. Impressive. Seamless refined. Classic Grange structure - tight, defined and balanced with slatey/sandy tannins. Saturated fruits - blackberry and concentrated Satsuma plum skin.

 

A darkened flavour theme of chocolate, liquorice and fermented black Chinese tea mask any overt presence of new oak, courting a long, effortless finish. Intense, powerful. The wait for this Grange release has indeed been worthwhile - arguably the finest vintage since Mother Nature's endowment of a number of stellar 1990s vintages.

 

Certainly stylistically in the mould of the wonderful 1990 and 1996 vintages.

98/100
Wine Companion
Saturated purple-crimson colour; has an amazing depth to the bouquet, oak and black fruits already seamlessly woven; the longer you spend inhaling the aromas, the more you learn about the wine within, in much the same way as a Grand Cru red burgundy. The palate delivers all that the bouquet promises, and then some; it has absolutely perfect proportions to the river of flavours running through blackberry, Satsuma plum, licorice and spice; the tannins are quite active, but totally balanced and ripe.

Wine Spectator
Smooth and seductive, this delivers a full-throated chorus of currant, plum, blackberry and spice flavors, hinting at coffee and cardamom as the finish floats and sails easily over a bed of polished, refined tannins. A touch of black olive balances nicely against it all. Beautifully structured, expressive and very long.

96/100
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Powerful aromas of cassis, blackberry and bitter cherry are complemented by exotic notes of smoky peat, pipe tobacco, violet oil and fresh blood. Deeply concentrated cherry skin and blackcurrant flavors are underscored by a strong mineral quality, with a sexy floral element gaining strength with air. The minerality builds on the finish, which leaves a wide swath of spice and earth notes in its wake. This wine's marriage of depth, spiciness, fruit, meatiness and minerality is extremely impressive.

Jancis Robinson
Inky black with black cherry core. Nose dominated by sweet oak spice but there's still fine cassis perfume underneath that oak. Sweetness of blueberry emerges. Very opulent and carressing on the palate. Deep pile and velvety but not thick. More approachable possibly than the 1998 even though it is still so youthful. Wonderfully pure cassis fruit. Already silky even though there's that classic richness in the mouth.
