Penfolds Bin 95 Grange Shiraz 2003
Inspired by the winemakers of Bordeaux, Penfolds’ first Chief Winemaker Max Schubert made his ﬁrst experimental wine in 1951, proudly gave management a tasting, only to find nobody liked it and he was ordered to shut down the project. He continued to craft his Grange in secret, and Penfolds, Australia and the world are eternally grateful for one of the planet’s great wines. The Grange Shiraz 2003 maintains the legend of the consistency of this Icon and is at the spicier end of the Grange spectrum.
Deep red Penfolds Grange 2003 has blue fruit notes entwined with sweet soy, cola and quince paste high notes wafting above aniseed, fennel and fresh treacle ginger pudding. The first taste is dark and liqueur chocolate, laced with Moroccan spices, pronounced tannins sweep across the palate, although they are certainly part of the wine which finishes long and layered.

- Penfolds Grange Shiraz is undoubtedly Australia’s most famous wine
- The 2003 vintage is beautifully balanced with black fruits as always
- Intense, complex and concentrated, Grange is a masterpiece in a bottle
James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au
Vintage 2003 - Deep and bright colour; major surprise along the lines of the '00, albeit in very different style; here there is density and structure; the fruit is rich, but not spongy or dead. Ultra careful selection.
