WA97

‘The Peake’ is one of the most revered wines in Australia. This vineyard’s history is intertwined with another iconic wine, Penfold’s Grange, where most of the vineyard’s fruit made it into the final blend of that benchmark red. ”A blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon and 44% Shiraz….. profound nose of baked cherries, blackberry coulis and blueberry compote with hints of cedar, violets, dark chocolate and a waft of wild thyme. Full-bodied, rich and opulent, it has a seductively complex and plushly textured palate, with tons of black fruit and spice layers, finishing long and perfumed” – The Wine Advocate. Fans of Grange definitely need to add this wine to their collection – it stands shoulder-to-shoulder in every way with that great wine at a price that is quite compelling for a world-class red. Wow!
