Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The wine exhibits an alluring, dense inky purple color, which is indicative of its substantial body and complexity. As you swirl the wine in the glass, you'll notice its syrupy texture through the slow-moving "legs" that cling to the sides.
The nose offers a complex bouquet of aromas that epitomizes the quintessence of premium Shiraz. Black fruits, notably blackberry and plum, dominate, enveloped by notes of dark chocolate, mocha, and an intriguing smoky oak character. Layers of exotic spice like star anise and black pepper add further complexity.
The taste is nothing short of an opulent experience, harmoniously balancing powerful fruit flavors, acidity, and tannin. The full-bodied palate is redolent with ripe dark fruits, cassis, and complex layers of spice and umami. The oak aging process contributes nuances of vanilla, mocha, and cigar box.
The finish is long, rich, and satisfying, with enduring fruit flavors and velvety tannins that make for a truly luxurious mouthfeel. Hints of dried herbs and leather may emerge, providing a nuanced ending to an already complex flavor profile.
Rich and viscous, the wine coats the palate, revealing its well-structured body and paving the way for extended cellaring, if so desired.
Third Base Market & Spirits Perspective:
Penfolds Grange Bin 95 2015 is an investment-grade wine that not only delights the palate but also has the aging potential to evolve into an even more complex and nuanced drink. The high ABV is well-integrated, making this wine enjoyable now or worthy of a few more years in the cellar.
Pair this monumental Shiraz with equally robust dishes such as braised beef short ribs, a hearty venison stew, or a rich beef Wellington. For cheese, consider robust options like Gouda or Roquefort.
This wine is highly sought after and may be available in limited quantities. We recommend contacting Third Base Market & Spirits to confirm availability.
