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.
