Penfolds 'Bin 95' Grange 1996 (1 x 750mL), SA.

Lot No: 0005-2476226

Grange is the benchmark by which other Australian reds are often measured. Grange is decadently rich with layer upon layer of flavor that coats the tongue and generously lingers minutes after swallowing. Abundant aromas leap from a glass of Grange and defy the typical adjectives used by wine tasters. These are hedonistic aromas of rich, ripe fruits and spice, yet with an 'otherness' of which wine tasters speak of in hushed tones.Grange blossoms with 15 to 20 years of bottle age and better vintages can live and continue developing for decades. First produced by Max Schubert in 1951, the '96 Grange represents 46 years of winemaking excellence. (264906-14)


Penfolds `St Henri` Shiraz 2002 (1 x 1.5L Magnum), SA.

Lot No: 0001-2476610

Langton’s Classified: ExcellentTop Vintage

Penfolds St. Henri is a counterpoint to Penfolds Grange. St. Henri is a highly successful, alternative expression of Shiraz. It is unusual among high quality Australian red wines as it does not rely on new oak. It was created in the mid-1950s (first commercial vintage 1957) and gained a new lease of life in the 1990s as its quality, longevity and distinctive style became better understood.Penfolds St. Henri is rich and plush when young and gains soft, earthy, mocha-like characters as it ages. It is matured in old, 1460-litre vats that allow the wine to develop, but imparting no oak character. The focal point for St. Henri is shiraz. The 2002 Penfolds St. Henri already shows great potential and is in the mould of the great 1990, 1991 and 1996 vintages. (264796-45)
