Great price on Grange, normally $799 odd.
Enjoy it with your smashed avo in the mornings and use any leftovers for Spaghetti Bolognese in night.

So many ways for landlords to spend tenants rent money ….
So many ways for landlords to spend tenants rent money ….
Yes, because every landlord is obscenely rich and buying $4000 bottles of wine.

When did day drinking became the norm?
Since everyone started working from home and outside of the purview of judgy co-workers and company policies.
I can't remember what day it.. what day it is… what is What was the question?
This year's Grange release in August is close too
Might pick up a couple to go with the Sunday roast.
Could make a lovely gravy out of it with the pan juices.
How does it taste guys ? Never had any wine more than 50 buvks
Likely, to someone who isn't very familiar with the subtleties of wine.
I'd like to know this too. Can any wine taste so good that you would genuinely feel its worth this much money? I find it hard to believe.
Or is it just the exclusivity of being able to afford it that is the attraction?
In simple terms no, but subtly yes. It's not like a steak where you'd pay 100 dollars for an amazing steak and it could be the best meal you've ever had in your entire life. For expensive wine there are things within them that you just can't get in cheaper bottles, but finding those things are hard and you need to know what you're doing to appreciate them. If you had someone to teach you and guide you through tasting it, I'm sure you'd appreciate the bottle much more than a cheaper bottle. Whether it's worth it or not is a different story.
I reckon in this case ignorance is bliss!
For most people it's a case of diminishing returns. It will just taste like any other "good" bottle of wine.
As njastar mentioned above, you really need to know what you are tasting for to appreciate the subtleties in the bottle.
It's good. I've had it a number of times. I have a number of bottles in my cellar for special occasions. If you can afford it then go for it. But if you don't have the money, go for Penfolds BIN 389 (often called baby Grange). Unless you are very familiar with wine, you'll likely not appreciate the difference in taste.
It really depends how much wine you drink and whether you’re accustomed to nuances of a variety of grapes.
To an accustomed wine drinker, penfolds grange is about as good as it gets. To someone who has only skolled goon on a hill til they black out, this won’t taste much different.
Expensive wine has a strong confirmation bias. It's a $600+ bottle of wine that is apparently the very best wine in Australia. It's very unlikely you'd buy one and say 'nah it's shit'.
If you've just spent $600+ on a bottle, you'll probably need to continuously convince yourself and others it was worth it. It's very much like people who buy MacBook Pro's and Telsa's.
thats shallow. use this to cook beef stew then you know what the whole rant is about
it's a stunningly beautiful wine. Whether it's worth it is a personal opinion.
I've had a few granges and hill of graces. The best grange I had was a 1986, that was just absurdly good. Really couldn't imagine a wine tasting better.
The early and mid 90 E&E from Barossa Estates was as good as any Grange and at about $40 a bottle before it took off and was subsequently sold at $300 plus. Those even number years in the 90s are now worth many hundreds and I would defy you to say the Grange of those years is any better.
Excellent wine. Although in a blind test we all preferred Hill of Grace (which is similar money). If you want something I think is of a similar calibre for a lot less, check out Giant Squid Ink. $139 at Dan's. We had a bottle the other day and were very impressed. But expensive wine is really only worth it to you if it's a hobby collecting and cellaring.
I'd also echo going for Bin 389 as a much cheaper alternative.
Case of 6 St Henri for $455 is a pretty good deal in there also.
I've had it couple times already. There was a time my boss left it covered in a bag and most of us though it was a Bin 389. So I'd say unless you can tell the subtle differences in red wine you won't be able to tell it apart from others. Personally I just think it's just an extremely overpriced Bin 389 but that's just me.
it's really vintage dependent. I've had 389 & grange and a good grange can be in no way mistaken for a 389.
How do these compare with the Gossip Shiraz?
Have had both 76 Grange and unknown vintage of gossips, the Grange is much much better. Gossips worth 5 dollars, where as Grange 76 tasted like a $100 - $200 wine.
Never had Grange before;
But a meal without wine is just breakfast.
I’m going to put that on a wall
You don't have wine with your weetbix? People are strange.
It’s just fancy grape juice
Great price, not quite the lowest though :)
25% off First choice a few months ago, I got one as friends gift for $617
now that was a bargain!!
+1 for the OP description
I was "lucky" enough to enjoy a bottle of this a few years ago (older vintage obviously- ~1980).
Nice… if you can afford it DO IT!
$600 …Must be a good wine…
I'll stick to my fruity lexia
I have tried various vintages of Grange and while the wine is really good, you're paying a grossly inflated price for the brand and image. It's a classic example of a Veblen good.
Used this for cooking Bok Choy. Delicious and would highly recommend
$640 bucks for 750 ml of wine, and yet people complain about the cost of a litre of petrol
Bargain fit for a corrupt NSW premier
