Tasting notes:size> First Grange to be commercially released -- in a quantity of between 100 and 150 cases, at a price of less than $A1 a bottle! One of three Grange vintages (1953 and 1962 are the others) produced in half (375ml) as well as full (750ml) bottles.

Lovely, gentle old wine with great elegance and balance. A first rank Grange. (Ultimate Grange Experience, Nov. 1994)

Fully mature, old Grange, excellent complexity, flavour and balance. Wonderful wine. (Rewards of Patience, 1st ed., 1985)

A superb wine, still drinking well. (Aust. Financial Review, Oct. 1981)

"First commercial vintage. Some bottles are holding up well but only if perfectly cellared. More lively and concentrated than 1951, but both tannin and fruit fading, yet a bottle tasted more recently seemed like a fine wine from the 70s rather than the 50s. Another historical and rare collector's item. Curio." (Southcorp Wines, The Rewards of Patience, Fourth Edition, March 2000.)
