This is a powerhouse, structurally superior to both the 2009 and 2008 vintages and breathtakingly dense, long and precise. The nose has cola, blackberry, vanillin, hard brown spices of all kinds, coal smoke, meaty charcuterie elements and a strong tarry, savory note that speaks of the 85% Barossa Valley componentry. The palate has super deep tannins that fan out through flavorsome black fruits. These are purposeful tannins - they bristle on the palate, tantalizing and assertive yet playful; strong not aggressive. The power here is the thing: This has mouth-coating density and terrific drive, so tightly coiled, it gives enough away to suggest a very, very long cellaring wine is here. This is a classic Grange that will please the serious collectors. A wine of genuine pedigree. Drink in 2026. - Nick Stock

In time honoured fashion, it finished its fermentation in 100% new American oak hogsheads, where it spent the next 17 months. It has exceptional hue and depth to the colour; the smoky complexity to the black fruits (no red or blue) of the bouquet also offers licorice and earth aromas; only a great Burgundy could have more nuances defined each time you revert to the bouquet. You could lose yourself, Narcissus-like, looking endlessly into the reflection of the palate; for all its power, there is not a hair out of place, the tannins outstanding. There is not the slightest question this will be one of the greatest Granges in the pantheon of '52, '55, '71, '96 and '06.

Very...   The 2010 Grange is a 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 96% Shiraz blend made from Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Magill Estate fruit that was aged 17 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads. Very deep purple-black in color, this is classic Grange - amongst the finest produced - replete with fresh, vibrant and youthful black fruit notes showing some blueberry aromas and accents of camphor, anise and the slightest floral hint plus a whiff of oak in the background to lend a cedar-laced lift to this textbook Shiraz nose. Medium to full-bodied in the mouth, it is very taut and finely constructed showing typically firm, grainy, uniform tannins, great concentration and wonderful persistence on the finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

This inky, embryonic wine deserves to be cellared until at least 2025 and should drink well for at least 25 years after that. It takes its time opening up in the glass to reveal notes of grilled meat, vanilla and plum. In...   This inky, embryonic wine deserves to be cellared until at least 2025 and should drink well for at least 25 years after that. It takes its time opening up in the glass to reveal notes of grilled meat, vanilla and plum. In the mouth, it's full bodied and firmly built, with a wall of chewy tannins surrounding a deep ripe core.

Hints of...   With its veritable vortex of rich but dynamic blackberry and blood-plum, exotic satsuma lift, creamy praline oak and supple tannins of deep-pile velvet, this is a sumptuous wine to sink into - a bottomless pit. Hints of sarsaparilla and tar lend savoury nuance. This oozes confidence and charm. Sourced from Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Magill Estate, it spent 17 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads.

This has presence and deftness in equal measure, with well-integrated tannins. Best from 2018 through 2030. – HS

Perfect vintage. Lustrous, dark blackish purple. Hint of putty and real interest. Nerve. High-toned note. Almost claret-like build with real tension. But huge complexity too. Very exciting. Distinctive. A bit like 2004?...   Perfect vintage. Lustrous, dark blackish purple. Hint of putty and real interest. Nerve. High-toned note. Almost claret-like build with real tension. But huge complexity too. Very exciting. Distinctive. A bit like 2004? Muscular. Ambitious pricing though.
