Join us at WHISK to celebrate The Mira turning five together at a highly exclusive wine dinner where Simon Cant unveils the 2009 Grange (97/100 RP), a vintage yet to be released for the 170th Anniversary of Penfolds only this year.

Penfolds has been creating an impressive array of wines since 1844 and many would agree undisputedly led the development of Australian fine wine into the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine. Since then a series of standout wines both white and red have been released under the Penfolds masthead.
About Penfolds Grange
Grange is arguably Australia’s most celebrated wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. Grange boasts an unbroken line of vintages from the experimental 1951 and clearly demonstrates the synergy between Shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia. Penfolds Grange utilises fully-ripe, intensely-flavoured and textured Shiraz grapes. The result is a unique Australian style that is now recognised as one of the most consistent of the world’s great wines.
