Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa + Adelaide Hills South Australia
Considered an undistinguished vintage, it won a trophy, five Gold, four Silver and six Bronze medals between 1974 and 1982.
I'd like to think that the wines with which I have been associated are descended from one ancestral vineyard established many years ago, marrying with another, and another, thus creating and establishing a dynasty of wines
Medium deep brick red. Grange displays fully-ripe and intensely-flavoured Shiraz and some Cabernet grapes in combination with new American oak. Mushroom, orange marmalade aromas. Characters of prunes and citrus fruits, some meaty demi-glaze flavours, and tannins dominate the palate, a unique style recognised as one of the most consistent of the world's great wines. Winemaker comments by Max Schubert: Medium brick red. Chamomile, citrus peel and chocolate/berry aromas with a touches of soft leather. Very big and mouthfilling with sweet, stocky fruit and notes of tar, leather and nutmeg. Firm, gripping tannins and long finish. More structured style but still has a very good core of fruit sweetness.
