Tasting notes:size> Last of the three "hidden" Granges made in secret by Max Schubert following a company order to cease production. Matured in used barrels as new oak was unavailable. Often criticised for volatility. Generally considered a lesser Grange.

Soft, fairly ripe fruit with low tannin; well balanced and holding well but without the complexity one expects. (James Halliday, National Times, Nov. 1982)

Fully matured, lighter in colour. While lacking complex oak, it is well balanced and drinking well. (Rewards of Patience, 1st ed., 1985)

Fairly mellow and lightening in hue but in drinkable condition. (Huon Hooke, Red Wine Clinic, Sydney 1992)

"The third and last ‘hidden’ Grange, made in secret but released commercially after the ban was lifted. Well-cellared bottles are holding up remarkably well. Drink now." (Southcorp Wines, The Rewards of Patience, Fourth Edition, March 2000)
