Penfolds Grange 1998, Magnum #0833
Penfolds Grange 1998 is a blend of 97% shiraz and 3% cabernet sauvignon.
1998 was a very good year for shiraz, and to even find a 1998 Grange, let alone a magnum, was a pretty rare opportunity that I could not pass up.
I bought this bottle in Brisbane, and plan to cellar it for a long time.
It is not a 'drink now' wine, and will mature and change character over many years of proper cellar storage.
