    November 30, 2014 - Maybe the best bottle of wine I have ever tried it needed serious air but wow after 2 hours epic!

    November 27, 2014 - Tasted during a Wine Advocat event - A matter of taste. Dark blackish crimson. Expressive nose of cassis, smoke, tar, scorched earth. Very precise palate with creamy tannis and excellent length. This is miles better than all the wannabe "thick & sweet" Shiraz that are popping up on every corner of Barossa. Bummer the market seems to know, hence the price.

    November 22, 2014 - Tasted this during Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate's Matter of Taste @ Singapore Art Museum. Tasted this after the 2010 Penfolds Shiraz St. Henri.

    Did not expect to taste this wine at the event so it came as a very nice surprise.

    Wine had a very elegant and integrated profile. As compared to the St Henri, the Grange is more fragrant, balanced, refined with a superb finish.

    Outstanding at this stage with the potential to go on for another 20 to 30 years. Should turn into a real beauty when she matures.

    Critics labelled this wine "The best Shiraz in the world." In my opinion it's not far from the label.

    November 22, 2014 - A matter of taste - Singapore (Singapore): Wow -best wine of the tasting! Wonderful nose with herbs, sweet berries and other dark fruit, earth, fine but tight texture, long finish. This is outstanding. 96-97

    November 22, 2014 - The nose was very good. Oak, tar, leather, smoky and heavy black fruits. Palate was very big with large voluptuous tannins. Huge mouthfeel with slightly chalky tannins. Lots of flavours hitting from all sides. Huge dark and black fruits, vanilla, oak, cassis..... Beautiful wine thats becoming approachable to drink now.
