Penfolds Grange 2010 is definitively on a plane of its own: the greatest young Australian wine I have ever tasted - Tyson Stelzer

Penfolds Rewards of Patience tasting panel 2021 - 5/5 rating
James Halliday Top 100 Wines of 2014

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.

"Only a great Burgundy could have more nuances defined each time you revert to the bouquet. You could lose yourself, Narcissus-like, looking endlessly into the reflection of the palate; for all its power, there is not a hair out of place, the tannins outstanding. There is not the slightest question this will be one of the greatest Granges in the pantheon of '52, '55, '71, '96 and '06."  James Halliday

The 2010 Penfolds Grange is a blend of 96% shiraz and 4% cabernet sauvignon from premium vineyards in the Barossa Valley (85%), Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Magill Estate. The wine was matured for 17 months in American oak hogsheads (100% new).

"A kaleidoscopic sensorial unfolding! Be warned – a deception of approachability invoked via a tightroped/exacting balance and fruited/structural charm. Worth the wait – after a one decade deliberation this wine strenuously asserts Grange's positioning in the new millennium!"  Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker

"Deep crimson. Intense pure elderberry, blackberry and liquorice aromas with roasted chestnut, vanilla and camomile notes. Plush and densely packed with elderberry, blackberry liquorice flavours, plentiful fine chalky tannins and underlying mocha, vanilla and roasted chestnut oak notes. Finishes chocolaty firm with abundant sweet fruits. Classical, powerful and expressive Grange with superb density, richness and balance. Still needs time to unfold. Drinking well, but will improve with time. Peak drinking 2030 to 2060.

Vintage conditions: Healthy winter rains in the Barossa Valley were followed by a dry and mild-to-warm spring which aided budburst. Consistent and slower growth continued and overlaid flowering and fruit set. December temperatures were much cooler, offering vines ideal growing conditions leading to veraison in early January. Summer rainfall came early which was followed by dry, warm weather, alleviating any disease concerns. Mild conditions followed during harvest, with yields in some vineyards below average due to the dry season overall. The fruit from these regions showcases excellent colour, concentrated flavour development and integrated tannins – hallmarks of a stand-out 2010 vintage."  Penfolds

"2010 holds a privileged position in the 60 year lineage of Penfolds Grange. In the context of recent tastings of many of the greatest vintages, 2010 attains new heights in its depth of black fruit presence and its structural assuredness. I adore 2008 Grange and, tasting them together, 2010 is even deeper and more vibrant, exuding another dimension of distinguished grace, precision, concentration, scaffolded structure and seamless, enduring persistence. There is a coiled reticence to the bouquet, skirting black plum, liquorice and dark chocolate, opening into breathtaking violet fragrance. The palate is unyielding, yet immensely structured. Magnificently voluptuous, yet elegantly coiled and bright. Silky and irresistible, yet untouchable and enduring. Tannins are a revelation, with a finesse and a chalk-fine texture impossible for such a resilient and powerful frame. Penfolds Grange 2010 is definitively on a plane of its own: the greatest young Australian wine I have ever tasted. A blend of 96% shiraz and 4% cabernet, from Barossa (85%), Clare, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Magill. Drink: 2030-2060; Price: $785.00; Date Tasted: Oct 2014."  Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste - 100 points

"The 2010 Grange arrives with much expectation and does not disappoint. This is a powerhouse, structurally superior to both the 2009 and 2008 vintages and breathtakingly dense, long and precise. The nose has cola, blackberry, vanillin, hard brown spices of all kinds, coal smoke, meaty charcuterie elements and a strong tarry, savory note that speaks of the 85% Barossa Valley componentry. The palate has super deep tannins that fan out through flavorsome black fruits. These are purposeful tannins - they bristle on the palate, tantalizing and assertive yet playful; strong not aggressive. The power here is the thing: This has mouth-coating density and terrific drive, so tightly coiled, it gives enough away to suggest a very, very long cellaring wine is here. This is a classic Grange that will please the serious collectors. A wine of genuine pedigree."  James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com - 100 points

"The core of this wine is Barossa Valley Shiraz (85%) the remaining 15% shiraz (and 4% cabernet sauvignon) from the Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Magill Estate. In time honoured fashion, it finished its fermentation in 100% new American oak hogsheads, where it spent the next 17 months. It has exceptional hue and depth to the colour; the smoky complexity to the black fruits (no red or blue) of the bouquet also offers licorice and earth aromas; only a great Burgundy could have more nuances defined each time you revert to the bouquet. You could lose yourself, Narcissus-like, looking endlessly into the reflection of the palate; for all its power, there is not a hair out of place, the tannins outstanding. There is not the slightest question this will be one of the greatest Granges in the pantheon of '52, '55, '71, '96 and '06. Drink by: 2060; Price: $785.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2014; Alcohol: 14.5%."  James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion - 99 points and Top 100 Wines of 2014

"The 2010 Grange is a 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 96% Shiraz blend made from Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Magill Estate fruit that was aged 17 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads. Very deep purple-black in color, this is classic Grange - amongst the finest produced - replete with fresh, vibrant and youthful black fruit notes showing some blueberry aromas and accents of camphor, anise and the slightest floral hint plus a whiff of oak in the background to lend a cedar-laced lift to this textbook Shiraz nose. Medium to full-bodied in the mouth, it is very taut and finely constructed showing typically firm, grainy, uniform tannins, great concentration and wonderful persistence on the finish. If I have any very slight complaint of this near perfect wine it is that it seems a little too clinical and appears to speak less of the land and the heart of South Australia and more of the very skilled winemaking than did the Grange from the magical 2008 vintage."  Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate - 99 points

"Deep crimson. Intense pure elderberry, blackberry and liquorice aromas with roasted chestnut, vanilla and camomile notes. Plush and densely packed with elderberry, blackberry liquorice flavours, plentiful fine chalky tannins and underlying mocha, vanilla and roasted chestnut oak notes. Finishes chocolaty firm with abundant sweet fruits. Classical, powerful and expressive Grange with superb density, richness and balance. Drink 2035-2060 Andrew Caillard MW, The Vintage Journal Verticals Penfolds Grange 2022 - 99 points

"Very deep, dark red-purple colour, youthful and bright looking. The bouquet is fresh and vibrant with especially good fruit-oak balance and the oak is not dominant on the bouquet - as it has been so often in the past. Fruitcake, roasted meats, charcuterie and black fruit aromas; hints of fresh tobacco as well. It's full-bodied and dense, concentrated and yet seamless and harmonious. The tannins are fleshy and smooth and well-integrated into the whole. An outstanding Grange, more approachable and in better balance than Grange usually is at release time (and this one is out six months early). 4% cabernet sauvignon - which doesn't show."  Huon Hooke, The Real Review - 98 points

"Powerful. Perfect. Origami shiraz. A large sheet of flavour folded into the precise design of its maker. Dark chocolate, blackberry, porty plum, cloves. Flavours of various seeds and nuts. Asphalt and malt. The tannin feels robust and tough as old boots but the fruit is drastically smooth and polished; the Grange way. Served alongside the 2008 and 2009 Granges and it certainly put the 2009 well into the shade, but faced stiff competition from the 2008. It's a more seamless wine than the 2008. Perhaps a more perfect one too. Drink: 2020-2040."  Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front - 96 points

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.
