Penfolds Bin 95 Grange 2009 750ml
Penfolds Grange 2009 750ml
The 2009 Penfolds Grange is a blend of 98% Shiraz and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon with ageing taking place in 100% new American oak hogsheads for 18 months. Fruit sources include Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley & Magill Estate.
Outstanding colour – totally impenetrable inky black core with a very deep dark purple-black hue. Hedonistic aromas of ripe blackberries, liquorice and dark chocolate explode out of the glass overlaying nuances of vanillin oak, mocha and spicy black pepper showing superb intensity. Rich and powerful with a firm tannin backbone that provides plenty of grips and structural support for long term cellaring, the palate boasts mouth coating flavours of ripe blackberries, liquorice and dark plum alongside a touch of dark chocolate with underlying vanillin oak, mocha and spice characters. Firm but polished tannins provide the support base to the powerful layers of rich fruit. Opulent muscular texture. Exceptional depth with very long blackberry, dark plum, dark chocolate, liquorice and spicy vanillin oak aftertaste. A classically proportioned Grange.
