ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE ISSUE #205
NAPA, Calif., March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Australian Report in the Wine Advocate was released today, March 1st, with the exciting inclusion of 2008 Penfolds Grange Shiraz, which scored a perfect 100 POINTS, by Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW.
Penfolds Grange Shiraz has a long history of excellence since its inception by creator, Max Schubert in 1951 (experimental vintage). Originally criticized by wine experts at the time, Penfolds Grange gained acceptance when the 1955 was awarded Gold Medals at International and local wine competitions. Unlike any wine of its time, it changed the face of the Australian wine industry and went on to become a National Trust heritage-listed wine.
2008 vintage Penfolds owned or managed the early ripening Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from precious older, lower-yielding, self-regulating vines. Rigorous harvesting and meticulous classification resulted in a swag of pristine fruit from Penfolds prime vineyards in the Barossa, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra. The deep colors, superb aromatics and dense ripe tannins all point to a classic Penfolds vintage.
2008 Penfolds Grange Shiraz Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker, states, '...Somewhat intimidating ? Yes. Brazen ? Never. Power & density naturally respectful of balance & structure. No DNA check required – an immediate familial link to the 1998 Grange...... Ration carefully. Resist temptation. Or, failing that, forget the budget and buy accordingly!'
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW states, 'Deep purple-black in color, the 2008 Grange puts forward a very complex nose packed with aromas of mulberries, layers of baking spices, cloves and cinnamon with nuances of minced meat, anise, potpourri and whiffs of dried mint and chocolate. It is framed by firm, grainy tannins and a refreshing acid line before finishing very long with aniseed and lingering blackberry preserves notes. This is clearly a wonderfully opulent and a magic vintage for this label. Drink it from 2018 to 2035+.'
