Grange of elegance

Penfolds Grange 2014, South Australia, AUD $900

First made in 1951 and released every year since, it’s a blend of six premium South Australian regions led by the Barossa. The bouquet evokes mocha, preserved plum, smoky toasty oak, tar and graphite. Very concentrated, full-bodied and superbly balanced, this Grange is already remarkably accessible. (Cork)
