06 takes the energy and vitality of 02 and the opulence and stamina of 04 and finds a middle ground, in a ravishing state of contentedness. This is Barossa shiraz, sufficient to be labelled as such, with tiny quantities of Coonawarra and Magill and just 2% cabernet. Intricately tweaked pressings make the style more approachable, but seemingly none of its legendary longevity has been sacrificed. A marvel of flavour engineering, throbbing with satsuma plum skin, black pastilles, liquorice, coal, black olives, iodine and exotic spice. Immense, nutty oak lurks behind the fruit at every moment like a dark shadow. Seamless, impeccably refined tannins rise like a tsunami. Controlled, focused and honed; another heroic Grange has ascended to the lineage of legends.
