Penfolds Rewards of Patience tasting panel 2021 - 5/5 rating
James Halliday Top 100 Wines of 1999

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.

"A magnificent edifice of a wine, elegant and refined in structure but dripping with flavor - a virtual cascade of plum, black cherry, blackberry, anise, pepper and exotic spices that lingers on the finish; this just doesn't quit."  Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator – 96 points

The 1994 Penfolds Grange is a blend of 89% shiraz and 11% 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).

"Dark plum with brick red rim. Nose: Rich and complex with flashes of green tea leaf and truffle, interlocked with freshly tanned leather and savoury notes, prune and stewed blueberry fruits. Enticing classy oak (cedar) elevated, yet not overstated, by smoky barrel ferment character. Palate: What is promised on the nose is delivered on the palate - an opulent, intense, hedonistic wine. Layers of massive Shiraz fruit and expertly crafted oak manifest themselves into a seemingly endless variety of flavours - deep plum, liquorice, cedar, chocolate."  John Duval - Penfolds Chief Winemaker

"Deep crimson. Fresh lifted dark cherry, mulberry, blackberry and shellac aromas with mocha/dark chocolate notes. Expressive wine with fleshy mulberry, blackberry, graphite and espresso flavours, fine dense persistent tannins and integrated vanilla, roasted coffee and mocha oak complexity. Finishes chocolaty firm, long and sweet. A classic Grange vintage combining opulence, tannin richness and integrated acidity for further aging. Drinking well, but will improve with time. Peak drinking now to 2040.

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.
