COLOUR: Bright deepend red, iris-purple on rim
NOSE: A fusion of preserved figs, black plum, blackberry and black liquorice flirts with an aromatic elution of fish oil, anchovy, soy and seasome/nori. An uplifting freshness and higher notes are liberated with air - awakend scents akin to cola, Chinotto, aniseed, root beer.
PALATE: A retronasal transfer of the aromatics listed above converge to similarly adorn the palate. Full-bodied - turbo-propelled by a V.A/formic mix, affording attaque and grip, yet respectful of balance and style. Custom-lifted with impressive denisty and length - all dark and black, harmonious. Oak conceded - absorbed, compliant - effortlessy merging with blue and black fruits and dark chocolate/mocha notes.

POINTS
The 2016 Grange includes 3% Cabernet Sauvignon and was sourced from Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Clare Valley, with a little bit from Magill Estate, in the suburbs of Adelaide. Aged in 100% new American oak (as always), it offers up trademark lifted aromas plus scents of vanilla, toasted coconut, cedar, raspberries and blackberries. Impressively concentrated and full-bodied, with an extraordinarily long, velvety finish, it's nevertheless reasonably fresh and tight, with decades of cellaring potential if properly stored. Certainly at least on a par with such vintages as 2010 and 2012, the big question is whether it will ultimately reach triple digits.
