‘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. ”The sum is greater than the parts here. Stunning interaction of the two grapes. The shiraz fills and lightens the cabernet just perfectly. Abundant red and dark berries, plums and chocolate. Super fine tannins, too. This is blended to perfection. A brilliant wine.” – James Suckling. 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!
