Product Description

Penfolds Grange 2010 is arguably Australia’s most celebrated wine. The nose offers an immediate barrel-ferment propulsion – sweet and candied, with a peaty, iodine, green olive base. Beneath this, a barely-concealed swirl of Vegemite/yeast extract/concentrated salt-paste–laced with paprika, oregano flower and thyme. A slurry of cocoa powder, a scented waft of black pudding, and a splash of nori-roll/sea-spray temporarily balance this aromatic equation. But then, a minute or two later all changes. The palate is dense, paste-like texture and weight. A balsamic liveliness/lift/energy is unleashed. Tannins focus on the roof of the mouth, laden with an additional film of (85% cacao) dark chocolate, mocha. A mix of quince and sesame-paste laden with basted meats and saturated stewed plum, boysenberry, blueberry. Tightly bound.
