The Winery At La Grange


Grange South Australia Shiraz 1999

My Father passed away at 100 and we had the viewing this evening. We celebrated with this earth stopping red wine. A carmelized tannin flavor leads the parade of complex tastes .A long lingering taste profile that is hard to verbalize. How a 24 year old wine can be this big is incredible. Tobacco, granite, huge nose. Not browning at all. Deep ruby red color still. A fitting tribute!!!🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 11 days ago

My condolences.


Bin 389 South Australia Cabernet Shiraz 2002

4 left after this one. Following my plan of having one per year until complete. This has not changed much from 12 months ago. At its peak sitting on the plateau. Notes of dark chocolate, mocha and blackberry - the Penfolds DNA in essence. Tastes a lot younger than 20 years of age. Medium plus bodied with a savoury twist at the finish. 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Shiraz. — 2 days ago

I feel earlier vintages in late 90’s and early 2000’s were very strong in terms of QPR. I don’t buy this any more as I consider it too expensive (in the US) for the experience.

Totally agree with you. Back in the day it was affordable.
Still enjoy drinking it.

Yes Ron, sadly that seems to be the experience with all of Penfolds Cuvées. I remember at the Downs Club we sold 2 pallets of the 1990 Bin 389 (still drinking well today) for $12.50 per bottle.


Grange Hermitage Bin 95 Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 1981

Penfolds tasted like it was only a couple of years old. Incredible fruit forward nature of the wine. — 4 days ago

Silver Oak

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

2002. In the same cellar spot since release. Youthful color, no bricking. The fruit might be fading a bit… but it’s silky smooth at 20 years old. Happy Thanksgiving! — 7 days ago

Château Margaux

Premier Grand Cru Classé Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1952

Quiet on the nose at first but gradually unfurls. Poised plum notes with delicate roses and some inky, saline hints. Light, still fresh though clearly has agreed to resolution… quite haunting and focused. Pretty. — 14 days ago

Domaine de la Grange des Pères

Vin de Pays de l'Hérault White Rhone Blend 2014

What a wine. It has the weight and richness of a white Rhône, with the acid and mineral cut of a great white burg. Dare I say Chaveneau? It’s stunningly aromatic with layered depth and complexity, wafting from the glass with ripe yellow orchard fruit, roasted nuts, wildflower honey and pastry cream. The palate is rich and intense, but ever so balanced, with killer volume, texture and superb length. A fabulous showing tonight. I much prefer GDP blanc to the rouge. — 18 days ago

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Wow. Very dark rubi rose, slightly bricky at the rim. Nose of blackcurrant, cedar, dark cherries and a hint of spices. Very elegant, complex and long in the mouth, one of the fines Pauillacs we had in a good deal of time, and we had some :) this is an outstanding bottle by all means. Enthusiastically recommended. — 4 months ago
