89% Shiraz, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon. Kalimna Vineyard (Barossa Valley), Barossa Valley, Magill Estate (Adelaide), Modbury Vineyard (Adelaide).Thick and sweet and dense – liquorice. . Much 'thicker’ than the 1971. Very drying finish, almost metallic. There was outrage when this was released apparently because it was released at more than $20!

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker

Consistently one of the most awesome wines ever made at Grange, this blend of 89% Shiraz and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon (13.9% alcohol) was the first Australian wine to cost $20 upon release. I have had this wine six separate times, every time rating it between 96 and 100. It had a phenomenal showing at Penfolds' Magill estate. The color is an opaque purple, the wine massive, full-bodied, and to me, the quintessential Grange. Notes of blackberry liqueur intermixed with cassis, charcoal, new saddle leather, and underbrush resonate from the glass. Huge, thick, unctuously textured, with extraordinary concentration but perfect harmony among all of its elements, this is a prodigious Grange that is still not fully mature. A legend for sure!

Solid, vibrant and rich with black cherry, red plum, spice and vanilla flavors shaded with hints of anise and currant. Reaching its peak, but still remarkably fresh and concentrated. -- Penfolds Grange vertical.
