PENFOLDS SHI­RAZ SOUTH AUS­TRALIA GRANGE 2012

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life | Wine -

Deep and ripe dark plum and black cherry aro­mas lead the nose, and there’s plum cake too that’s re­ally ripe and deeply spicy. The palate’s in­cred­i­bly poised. It has a rich­ness with com­po­sure driven by tightknit tan­nins and plenty of ripe dark plum and cherry flavours. Neatly crafted, pow­er­ful yet con­tained and smoothly ren­dered into the fin­ish. This is a pow­er­ful vin­tage that’s been clev­erly pol­ished and tamed; it will live long. Best from 2025. 98 points
