This is part of Australia's national heritage and a tribute to the late Max Schubert who had the vision and ability to conceive such a wine and then construct it. Since then, Grange's winemakers have been outperforming brilliantly. I have always thought that one of Grange's many secrets is the magical mix of the Shiraz (Syrah) grape and American oak - somehow the "sweetness" of the wood marries perfectly with the peppery grape, leaving a glorious leathery richness on the palate. Anyone who has never tasted Grange owes it to his, or herself, to try it. A recent, unmatched vertical tasting of Grange in London was one of the wine events of my life. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
