Notes sourced from Penfolds.
The Penfolds Magill Estate Vineyard experienced similar conditions to those seen throughout much of South Australia. Cool spring and summer temperatures were relieved by a warm, dry August. The carefully maintained, mature Magill Estate vineyard did not suffer the yield reductions so prevalent this vintage but did ripen later than average. This wine was matured for 15 months in 70% new and 10% one year old French oak, and 20% new American oak hogsheads. Tasting Notes: Deep red colour. On the nose an overt smoky, barrel ferment character sits separate to, yet comfortably alongside, pencil shaving oak aromas. Cedar, cinnamon and wet charcoal nuances blend with the savoury, white chocolate and floral notes characteristic of the Magill Estate. A palate of impeccable balance, integrated oak and an array of fruits: liqueur cherry; kirsch; malt; and Satsuma plum. A complex, layered wine with no aggression or rough edges, a result of open fermentation, basket pressing, barrel ferment and a sensitive racking programme. There is tremendous length of flavour.
The 2002 Shiraz Magill Estate (a single vineyard cuvee whose debut vintage was 1983) spent 15 months in primarily new French oak and some larger American hogsheads. It possesses sweet aromas of vanillin, white chocolate, cassis, and flowers. Medium to full-bodied, expansive, pure, and nicely textured, this complex beauty is somewhat European in its restraint and elegance. Enjoy it over the next 10-15 years.
