Penfolds `Bin 95` Grange Hermitage 1969 (1 x 1PT 6FL OZ), Clinic Recork

Penfolds Clinic 2016 3/154

Grange Hermitage Grapes grown at Penfolds' Grange Vineyard at magill in the foothills just outside of Adelaide, South Australia.

Matured in small oak casks prior to bottling . Will improve with further bottle age. Grange Hermitage was developed by Penfolds' chief winemaker, Mr. Max Schubert, commencing with the 1952 vintage.

This wine undergoes a long maturation in bottles and in consequence it is liable to throw a slight crust or deposit - it is therefore recommended that the wine be rested and decanted prior to serving.
