The Australian Wine Companion (James Halliday) – Rated 96 Points
“Outstanding dense but bright purple-red; a powerful, concentrated bouquet with blackberry, mulberry and licorice aromas, and the oak seemingly more restrained than is usual. A powerful but impeccably balanced and structured wine, redolent of black cherry, licorice and mulberry fruit flavours; oozing class, breeding and staying power. It will be very interesting to watch the development of this wine versus the much-vaunted ’90 and ’91 vintages.” Drink by 2022″

The Wine Advocate (Robert Parker) – Rated 93 Points
“The opaque purple-colored 1992 Grange exhibits an unevolved, grapy nose of sweet toasty oak, ripe prunes, black raspberries, and cassis. Full-bodied, with lavishly-displayed oaky notes, this formidably endowed, large-scaled wine should develop into an impressive example of Grange, although my instincts suggest it will not be quite as good as the 1990, 1986, or 1982.

The World of Fine Wine Magazine (Neil Beckett) – Article Penfolds Top Reds 1952-2006
“1992- Very deep, black/ruby; opaque. Intense, spicy, tangy nose, but black-fruited and cool; altogether more reminiscent of great young Hermitage. Great harmony on the palate, richly silky, with drippingly succulent, strikingly vivid fruit and suave tannins. Excellent length. Although the 1990 and ’91 are generally more highly regarded vintages, I find the former wine difficult to understand, a bit like much modern art, and find the 1992 better balanced and more elegant, less hard and strident. The others may settle and soften, but certainly at this stage, and for several years yet, I would find the 1992 more tempting. Drink to 2020.” 17.5/20
