Notes sourced from Penfolds
Magill Estate Shiraz is Penfolds' only single-vineyard wine. It is of great symbolic importance because it is the only wine grown and made on theremaining 5 hectares of the original Penfolds property at Magill, in Adelaide'seastern suburbs [pictured left]. First made in 1983, Penfolds Magill Estate Shiraz is an elegant,medium-weight style with velvety texture and fine tannins, matured in bothnew-French and new-American oak. It is a sleek, contemporary wine, yetcrafted in the old-fashioned way in the 120-year-old winery: hand-picked,vinified in open fermenters and then basket pressed. Matured for 14 months in new French (80%) and new American (20%) oak.
Magill experienced a high-quality, low-cropping vintage that finished in thethird week of February. Shiraz reached an optimal ripeness, showingexcellent varietal characters. The crop was the lowest since the inauguralyear in 1983.
Tasting Note: Bright, brick red color. Youthful nose with liqueured cumquat fruits meshed with scents of spice, pepper and dried tea-leaf. The fruit aromas are supported by notes of cured meats and berry, and bordered by smoky, cedary French oak - all classic Magill hallmarks. An explosion of fruit upon contact - the sweetness of which conveys a nectar-like, citrussy richness. A suggestion of sage/thyme gives way to a chocolately/cherry flavour on the finish. Well-handled, integrated oak and softened ripe tannins define the wine's balance and firmness.
