"Penfolds is the only Australian Winery to receive 100 points from both Wine Spectator (US) and Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (US) for the same Vintage (2008 Grange). In 2017, Grange was classified as a First Growth in Liv-ex's published recreation of the Bordeaux 1855 classification.
Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines for almost 150 years and indisputably lead the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange Hermitage in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine, since then a series of standout wines - both red and white - have been released under the Penfolds masthead." - Penfolds
