Penfolds Bin 95 Grange Shiraz 2013
Penfolds Bin 95 Grange Shiraz 2013 is the original and most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy, Grange is arguably Australia's most celebrated wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia.
Made up of 96% Shiraz and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards across the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Magill Estate; Grange clearly demonstrates the synergy between shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia. On the nose, there is an eruption of soy, hoisin and balsamic eruption; balanced by fresh raspberry. Black fruits on the palate meet with liquorice, fig and cardamom; with the oak all but fully concealed, submerged beneath granitic chewy tannins. Peak drinking between 2020 - 2060

Vintage 2013 - Deep colour. Intense inky dark chocolate, cranberry, blackberry fruits, paneforte, aromas with vanilla roasted chestnut, savoury oak notes. Densely concentrated and ample with generous deep-set blackberry dark chocolate dark cherry sweet fruit notes, fine perfectly ripe yet vigorous and plentiful graphite tannins, vanilla mocha, marzipan, roasted chestnut oak complexity and meaty paneforte negroni-like nuances. Finishes minerally and flavourful with a long supple textural plume. A brilliant follow-up to the classic 2012 vintage. An outlasting and transcendent wine of lovely proportion, density and mineral length. 20 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads. 96% Shiraz, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon. 2027 - 2050+
2013 Vintage - Remember that old Heinz Ketchup “anticipation” ad from the 1970s? The palate of this 2013 Grange does just that. It makes you wait with so much delicious promise being drip fed into the mouth at first—and then it bursts forth and delivers! This vintage is a blend of 96% Shiraz and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, coming from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Magill Estate. Very deep inky purple-black colored, the 2013 Grange has a profoundly scented nose of crème de cassis, preserved black plums, blueberry pie and licorice over nuances of baker’s chocolate, smoky bacon and fragrant earth, plus exotic spice wafts of cumin seed, cardamom, fenugreek and star anise. Unfurling and slowly building in the medium to full-bodied mouth with wonderful grace and depth, it reveals an incredible array of ripe black fruit, spice, meat and earth-inspired flavors, with a rock-solid frame to support this beauty (it should easily cellar for 40+ years!), while previously latent flavors emerge fully on the epically long finish, culminating in that ultimate Grange experience. Oh, yes.
