Comments: Considered a good but tannic Grange. Won two gold and five other medals at Australian wine shows between 1976 and 1981. The year Max Schubert retired from his post of Chief Winemaker, although he remained a consultant to Penfolds and kept an office at Magill until his death in 1994. He was succeeded as Chief Winemaker by Don Ditter, who had worked with Penfolds as a winemaker since 1946.
Tasting notes:size> Colour: dense purple-black. Bouquet: immense spicy hermitage with Rhúne-like structure. Palate: a giant black/tannic wine with astonishing spicy flavour and depth. Not totally balanced at this stage because of that tannin. (James Halliday, National Times, Nov. 1982)
