Daryl's Wines

The genius who made one of Australia's most expensive wines, Penfolds Grange

    • Meet Daryl.... He has been a winemaker for 35 years, with some of his wines even served at the Oscars and Emmys two years in a row!
    • Working as the senior white and red winemaker at Penfolds, his 1986 Penfolds Grange was arguably one of the top 3 Granges ever made - 98 points from Wine Spectator and Robert Parker!
    • Daryl LOVES making (and drinking) Shiraz... It's silky, sexy and simply delicious he says and the greatest value of all red wines.

Daryl Groom's Story

"Hi Angels!
 
I have been making wine for 35 years, working in wineries such as Krondorf in the Barossa, Saltram, Peter Lehman, Kaiser Stuhl and working with Penfolds between 1982 - 1989. I am proud to say that my 1986 Penfolds Grange was arguably one of the top 3 Granges ever made and some of my wines were even served at the Oscars and Emmys two years in a row!
 
I only make wines that I personally love to drink and love to make... my Aussie wines come from my own vineyards, planted by mine and my sister in law's families - so in this sense I have full control over the whole process!
 
I LOVE making (and drinking) Shiraz... It's silky, sexy and simply delicious. I appreciate the personality of all the different styles but I think Shiraz offers the greatest value of all red wines. I love to make wine but even more so I love people drinking and enjoying my wine.
 
With the Angels' support I have been able to put the best resources into making quality wine exclusively for you. I can select the best barrels I need and farm to the highest quality.
 
Naked Wines is a gift from god to a winemaker - I knew there were Angels in heaven!"

Ah, missed this for 4+ years!... <br />Okay, an adopted Bristolian who lives & loves the city, the music & the cultures etc. Got 'into' wine thanks to Averys, who are great (even if part-owned by Direct Wines, ick!) & then found Naked some time back - yay! <br />A wheelie gig&festival-going academic beard-stroking muppet who ain't gonna let MS stop me. Too much...
