Despite carrying many different Bin numbers in the early years, Grange was always labelled Bin 95 from the 1970 vintage. This wine is a favourite of Don Ditter, who worked at Penfolds from 1946 and succeeded Max Schubert as Chief Winemaker in 1975.
The 1970 Penfolds Grange is a blend of 90 per cent Shiraz and 10 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon.
Colour : Medium brick red.
Nose : Complex, mature smoked oyster and truffle aromas with some stocky sweetness.
Palate : Beginning to fade, with some sweet but over-developed Now fruit and earthy leather characters. Plenty of grip but drying out.
