Penfolds launches 2010 Grange

UK (London) – Penfold presents new wines as seldom as once a year – usually. Just this once it was already the third presentation within 18 months, after the presentation of the 2008 Grange in 2012 and of the 2009 Grange earlier this year. Now the 2010 followed, which Peter Gago, leading winemaker, presented personally in London. The price (about 578 euro per bottle) is remarkable – as much as 15 percent less than the 2008 Grange.
