2012 Grange, Penfolds, South Australia

Wow. There is so much intensity here, with different aromas jumping from the glass: ripe plums, cinnamon, meatiness, menthol. The palate is incredibly smooth, with real purity of fruit and freshness balancing all that concentration. Indeed, it’s balance that stands out here. This is an outstanding Grange, and potentially one of the best ever.
