Penfolds Bin 95 Grange Shiraz 1986
On the nose, the Penfolds Bin 95 Grange Shiraz 1986, has powerful intense mocha, cedar, liquorice aromas balanced with malty, smoky oak characters. A richly extravagant palate with complex mocha, dark chocolate, dark berry, herb fruit and dense ripe tannins. Finishes chalky firm but superbly long and flavourful. A great Grange still on the ascendancy.
No other red wine in Australia can rival the reputation, consistent quality or proven development pattern of Penfolds Grange. The pinnacle of the Penfolds red wine range, Grange is a rich, opulent, full-bodied Shiraz, destined for a long cellar life. The winemaking process involves great attention to detail; from selecting the best possible grapes sourced from low-yielding, old Shiraz vines through to fermentation and fastidious oak maturation. The unique and distinctive Grange style is based on ripe Shiraz fruit and stylish American oak in fine harmony.
The 1986 Penfolds Grange has a red star rating in the Penfolds Rewards of Patience, Sixth edition. Red stars are awarded to those wines that are considered to be an exceptional vintage.
