Possibly the best Penfolds Grange ever produced and one of Max Schurbert's favourites due to winning a gold medal at the 1962 Sydney Royal Show in the Open Claret Class. Many judges had previously been vocally critical of the style. Iconic US Magazine, Wine Spectator, even chose the wine as a 'Wine of the Millennium'. The wine itself has a deep brick red appearance, with a nose of coffee, mocha and gamey meats with some leathery notes. The palate is still fleshy, supple and smooth with corresponding mocha and gamey flavours. Silken tannins are present with an everlasting fruit sweet length.

A miraculous wine. Really bloody delicious. Feral, sweet, leathery and yet juicy and long through the finish, the cow paddock dressed up for show day. Slaking tannins, fine, firm and joyous. Curranty and chocolatey and pruney too. Here's where wine gets emotional. An unstoppable wine. Tasted when the wine was over 50 years old.
Vintage: 1955 Score: 97 points
