  • Closure: Cork

Notes sourced from Southcorp Wines.

Grape Varieties: A blend of 90% Shiraz & 10% Cabernet Sauvignon the fruit was sourced from Magill (Adelaide), McLaren Vale & Kalimna (Barossa Valley).

Total acids: 6.7 grams per litre.pH: 3.69 Alcohol: 12.8%

Vintage Conditions: Wet growing season followed by a fine but cool vintage.

Tasting Notes: size> Always considered a good rather than a great Grange. However, won a trophy, four gold and three other medals in 1968 and1969.

Colour: medium full red-brown. Bouquet: strong fruit, with a hint of cigar box but lacks the complexity of some of the other top wines. Palate: fairly firm, indeed, bordering on sharpness/bitterness. Not rich enough. (James Halliday, National Times, Nov.1982)

Shows developed, firm flavour and good structure. Drinking well. (Rewards of Patience, 1st ed., 1985)

"Beginning to dry out. Quite leathery with some mushroomy notes. Becoming lean and austere. Drink now." (Southcorp Wines, The Rewards of Patience, Fourth Edition, March 2000)
