Penfolds Grange Hermitage 1978

No other red wine in Australia can rival the reputation, consistent quality or proven development pattern of Penfolds Grange.

Grange Hermitage is the pinnacle of the Penfolds red wine range. It is a rich, opulent, full-bodied Shiraz, destined for a long cellar life. The winemaking process involves great attention to detail; from selecting the best possible grapes sourced from low-yielding, old Shiraz vines through to fermentation and fastidious oak maturation. The unique and distinctive Grange style is based on ripe Shiraz fruit and stylish American oak in fine harmony.

Tasting Notes
Penfolds Grange Hermitage 1978 is medium red in colour.

The aromas are complex, cedar/tobacco/gamey with plenty of sweet fruit.

Highly concentrated and beautifully textured wine with lovely, sweet, blackberry/smoky/ earthy fruit and liquorice, fine grainy tannins and dry finish. Softening out well, but should continue to develop.

This great wine developed by Max Schubert, commencing with the 1952 vintage, is made from premium Hermitage grapes grown at selected vineyards in South Australia & matured in small oak casks prior to bottling.

During an extensive tour of the Bordeaux region of France in 1950 Max Schubert studied numerous wine-making practices that have now become an integral part of Penfolds wine-making practices that have now become an integral part of Penfolds wine-making technique.
