The 2017 Penfolds and Saint-Louis collaboration delivers the second Aevum Limited Edition Crystal Decanter with Grange 2013.
The contemporary, minimalistic crystal decanter features an evolved design to showcase the fluid beauty of the fine wine within. A flowing band of incised crystal allows an uninterrupted view of the depth of colour and consistency of the liquid inside. Hand-blown, hand crafted.
NOSEAn amalgam of aromatics working in harmony –primarily yellow stone fruit (nectarine) and honeydew melon with soft pistachio nougat… and enchantingly/unexpectedly from this white grape variety, blueberry bavarois!
FLAVOURS AND PALATEFormidable No gaps, a densely-packed structural continuum. Not huge, not massive, yet taut, muscular, feisty. A black palimpsest - black fruits, black liquorice, black pudding, black fig, black cardamom.... Granitic chewy tannins linger and coat; oak all but fully concealed, submerged beneath a tannin/oak/acid/flavour tsunami. Fruits? Where to start in this entanglement? Time please.
