Tasting Notes: size> Considered a good rather than a great Grange, although it did win a gold medal and the 1966 Jimmy Watson Trophy for the best one-year-old dry red at the Melbourne Show, plus two more gold and six other medals between 1966 and 1973. Rated 85/100 points by Robert Parker in 1990.

Full-bodied and mature with a mellowed, complex flavour. At peak. (Rewards of Patience, 1st ed., 1985)

"Medium brick red. Developed, gamey, sweet fruit aromas with hints of leather. Developed, sweet, molasses/gamey fruit on palate, pronounced tannins and good length. Finishes dry. At peak of development. Drink now." (Southcorp Wines, The Rewards of Patience, Fourth Edition, March 2000)
