Penfolds Grange 2003 has a colour of Deep Red. The nose is
captivating, complex, and complete. Unravelling aromatics unfurl with
air - blue fruit notes entwined with barrel ferment and maturation
elements; nothing singular, always in tandem. Sweet soy, cola and
quince paste high notes escape from an ethereal layer (aniseed,
fennel and fresh treacle ginger pudding) wafting
above.The palate is dark and liqueur chocolate, laced with Moroccan
spices. An underlying tar/graphite blackness is lifted by derived
fruit/quince pie flavours. Pronounced tannins sweep across the
palate, although they are certainly part of the wine, never obtrusive.
Long, layered and compelling, this wine is at the spicier end of the
Grange spectrum.

Grange is arguably Australia's most famous wine and is officially
listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia.Grange boasts an
unbroken line of vintages from the experimental 1951 and clearly
demonstrates the synergy between Shiraz and the soils and
climates of South Australia.
Penfolds Grange displays fully-ripe, intensely-flavoured and
textured Shiraz grapes in combination with new American oak.
The result is a unique Australian style that is now recognised as
one of the most consistent of the world's great wines. The Grange
style is the original and most powerful expression of Penfolds
multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy.
