A powerful but impeccably balanced and structured wine... oozing class, breeding and staying power - James Halliday

Penfolds Bin 95 Grange Shiraz is Australia's most famous wine with a reputation for superb fruit complexity and flavour richness. It is the most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. One of the world's great wines.

"This is a wine of extraordinary subtlety and complexity, powerful without showing too much muscle. It layers its anise, black cherry and blackberry flavors to keep them zingy through the finish. Shows a lot of depth and surprising restraint."  Harvey Steiman

The 1992 Penfolds Grange is a blend of 90% shiraz and 10% cabernet sauvignon from premium vineyards in the Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale. The wine was matured for 18 months in American oak hogsheads (100% new).

"Deep, dense, dark brick-red with purple crimson hues. Nose: The bouquet displays all the distinctive hallmarks of classic Grange - abundant, sweet, ripe berried fruit coupled with balanced integrated oak. As it breathes, the wine reveals alluring tobacco, smoked roasted nuts and concentrated blackcurrant nuances. Palate: The palate has intense, sweet, rich fruit with pronounced yet rounded ripe tannins. The wine has excellent structure and integration of spicy, earthy fruit and firm oak, finishing with great length of flavour."  John Duval - Penfolds Chief Winemaker

"Deep crimson. Intense blackberry, cherry and mulberry aromas with dark chocolate, vanilla spice, oak and graphite notes. Concentrated blackberry, dark cherry, dark chocolate and grilled nut flavours with malty vanilla oak notes, fine loose-knit chalky tannins, smoky, leafy, fresh tobacco notes and pronounced acidity. Finishes leafy firm and inky. A sturdy Grange with the power and concentration for further cellaring. Drinking well, but will improve with time. Peak drinking now to 2040."  Penfolds 

Wine region map of South Australia

South Australia

South Australian is responsible for more than half the production of all Australian wine. It is home to more than 900 wineries across 18 wine regions. The regions are Adelaide Hills, Adelaide Plains, Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Coonawarra, Currency Creek, Eden Valley, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale, Mount Benson, Mount Gambier, Padthaway, Riverland, Robe, Southern Fleurieu, Southern Flinders Ranges and Wrattonbully.

Many of the well-known names in the South Australian wine industry established their first vineyards in the late 1830s and early 1840s. The first vines in McLaren Vale were planted at Reynella in 1839 and Penfold's established Magill Estate on the outskirts of Adelaide in 1844.

South Australia has a vast diversity in geography and climate which allows the State to be able to produce a range of grape varieties - from cool climate Riesling in the Clare and Eden Vallies to the big, full bodied Shiraz wines of the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. Two of Australia's best-known wines, Penfolds Grange and Henschke Hill of Grace, are produced here. There is much to discover in South Australia for the wine lover.
