Other Reviews....
The very first release of this new, somewhat iconoclastic and yet intrinsically delicious concept, this NV G3 is a blend of Grange 2008, 2012 and 2014, although fans of Grange should not expect it to taste like any of these; G3 possesses a style all its own. Very deep garnet-black colored, it has a full-throttle, up-front nose of incense, fruit cake, chocolate-covered cherries and preserved plums with touches of cinnamon stick, cloves, cigar box and Chinese five spice, plus a waft of potpourri. Full-bodied, velvety, rich and oh-so-decadent, this is true hedonist’s wine, with a very, very long spice-layered finish. To quote Homer Simpson, “Sacrilicious!” It is actually open for business and drinking deliciously right now, though should cellar for a good 20+ years. Only 1,200 bottles were made.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Advocate #233 (Nov 2017)

This is a wine that you just want to keep smelling with a kalidescope of aromas. Floral bouquet such as violets and roses with a blackberry and blueberry character underneath. But the fruit is secondary. It's all about the rest of it. Minerals. Slate. Flint. Soya. Full body, extremely fine tannins with great length and depth. The essence of Penfolds. The finesse and texture is surreal. Balanced. It's a magical wine. The perfect drink. And a blend of vintages - 2008, 2012 and 2014.. This has 2% cabernet and the rest shiraz. 1200 bottles made.

Inaugural release of Penfolds G3. A blend of Penfolds Grange from the 2008, 2012 and 2014 vintages. The 2008 was taken ex-bottle and then matured in barrel with the 2012 and 2014 releases.
It doesn’t taste like any of the vintages. It’s a house style, distilled, in its ultimate form. In short, it has taken the three vintages and become something other. It’s an extremely concentrated wine. Strong fruit, strong oak, strong tannin, strong impression. Ferrous elements, dense blackberry, saturated plum, saltbush, vanilla, woodsmoke. Lots of formic. Pounding tannin. It feels dense, mellow, fresh and silken at once. Drinking it is a somewhat strange experience: it feels mature, partly, even slightly leathery, but there’s a rocket of fresh black fruit too. Its quality is undeniable. That said, the real ‘soul’ of Grange is an artful combination of its story, its creator, and its reliable flavour. In the glass, this wine tastes as though it’s a step removed.
