The 2017 Penfolds and Saint-Louis collaboration delivers the second Aevum Limited Edition Crystal Decanter with Grange 2013. The contemporary, minimalistic crystal decanter features an evolved design to showcase the fluid beauty of the fine wine within. A flowing band of incised crystal allows an uninterrupted view of the depth of colour and consistency of the liquid inside. Hand-blown, hand crafted.
Penfolds Grange Shiraz
The drink originated from multi-regional blend, South Australia, from Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Magill Estate. Its maturation length is 20 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads.The varietal consist of 96% Shiraz and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Saint-Louis is the oldest glassmaker in Europe and one of the most prestigious crystal houses in the world. In 2016, Penfolds and Saint-Louis unveiled a collaboration to acknowledge the art and culture of a service ritual long associated with the flagship Grange.
AppearanceOpaque black core, dark red rim
NoseAn aromatic eruption of soy, hoisin, balsamic reduction coiled around a core of kirsch and fresh raspberry. This propulsion is crammed with tell-tale barrel ferment, V.A. and formic Grange markers – all in balance, all respectful of fruit and oak. The ‘classy’, a brightness, a sheen, a gloss, a raciness – belying both age and upbringing
PalateFormidable no gaps, a densely-packed structural continuum. Not huge, not massive, yet taut, muscular, feisty. A black palimpsest - black fruits, black liquorice, black pudding, black fig, black cardamom. Granitic chewy tannins linger and coat, oak all but fully concealed, submerged beneath a tannin tsunami
