Penfolds Tasting (Bin 75): Lots of vanilla, acetaldehyde, fainter fruit; intense on the palate, softer tannin, some heat, chocolate, blackberry, perfumed, grainy tannin; didn't scream ultra noble wine but I didn't hate drinking it; should prove to be an earlier drinking Grange but it may need a few years to shed this seemingly awkward phase it's in now.
Langton's Classification Tasting (Carraigeworks, Sydney): Cedar, charcoal, spice and it's a quite pretty nose in a certain sort of way. Delicious black fruit envelops the oak on the palate. Very good acidity keeps the fruit from feeling overbearing. I really liked this despite its obvious youth.
Quick taste at Hedonist wines. First, but hopefully not the last, taste of this legendary wine. Blueberries, mint and slight fruit acidity on the nose. Such pure fruit! A lot lighter than expected as I had a heavy Aussie in mind. The taste is so clean but yet there is structure and fruit to make it last for a long time. The acidity rather than the tannins carries the wine. A knock out wine already, just wonder what it will become?! 95-96 p
Mövenpick Tasting Just some short notes, did not took the time to write full notes: Light purple color (not as black as i thought), very closed nose, not very complex on the palate. Way too young? Not very appealing at the moment
