Tom Firth takes the pulse of Penfolds’ Grange
I recently had a chance to enjoy one of those tastings that sounds absurdly cool to all my wine aficionado friends. Imagine, you get a seat at a vertical tasting of Penfolds’ Grange. This flagship offering from one of Australia’s iconic wine producers typically retails around $400 in Canada, and I was going to be lucky enough to taste the range from 1997-2001 and 2003-2005. To bookend this tasting, we also got to try the much more affordable 2008 Penfolds Bin 389 to start and end with one of my favourites, the 2006 and 2008 RWT.
