[SOLD-OUT] Penfolds Grange 1970 (Base of Neck Level) (Minor Damaged Label)

Jeremy Oliver 93 Points!

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. Winemaker comments by Max Schubert
