Notes sourced from Southcorp Wines.

Grape Varieties: A blend of 88% Shiraz and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon the fruit was sourced from Magill (Adelaide), Coonawarra, Adelaide Plains and Kalimna (Barossa Valley).

Total acids: 6.7 grams per litre. pH: 3.52. Alcohol: 12.7%

Vintage Conditions: Hot and dry, with growing season rainfall less than half the average. The hot weather continued through vintage.

Tasting Notes:size> This was the first Grange to utilise Coonawarra grapes. Two gold and three silver medals in Australian wine shows between 1963 and 1968. Considered a lighter year. One of three Grange vintages (1952 and 1953 are the others) produced in half (375ml) as well as full (750ml) bottles.

Fully developed wine showing a smooth, mellow palate. (Rewards of Patience, 1st ed., 1985)

"Becoming rare. The best examples show developed, mushroomy, sweet fruit and soft tannins. Drink now." (Southcorp Wines, The Rewards of Patience, Fourth Edition, March 2000)
