Critic & User Reviews

92 Points Robert Parker

The earliest harvest on record at Penfolds, the 1983 vintage was characterized by devastating bush fires, followed by enormous flooding in March. A blend of 94% Shiraz and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine has a surprisingly low pH (3.41) for a Grange, with an amazing 7.1 grams of acid per liter. The wine still shows considerable tannin in its flavors, but enormously powerful, rich, high acid characteristics. It is somewhat of a paradox to taste. Five years ago, it was exhibiting huge, powerful, concentrated flavors, but also high acid and high tannin. The wine seems very youthful, very backward, and still in need of at least another 4-5 years of cellaring. Whether it will all come together in a seamless classic remains open to conjecture. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020.

An amazingly concentrated wine! We opened the 1983 for a dinner party last night. What a hit! Beautiful nose and color, intense in flavor (jammy). While I have tasted previously, I believe this wine to be at the top of its game now.

Find my in depth comments on this vintage,in my review on the 1996 Grange. A singularly individual Grange! Jeremy Oliver awards the 1983 96 pts. Cheers W.D.
