Vineyards have a mystical quality that has been recognized since the time of Noah. As one spends more time observing the growth of vines with changes in the growing season, one comes to appreciate that they are not botanically homogenous places. Special micro areas seem to produce consistently outstanding fruit, but even this is not static. Traditionally, only an experienced winemaker is able to discern these special mini areas. However, with new technology, micro terroirs can now be mapped from the sky using infrared mapping technology coupled with intense geological surveying of soil profiles and capacitance probes which monitor soil moisture. Penny’s Hill Footprint is the result of such meticulous mapping and flavour profiling. Rows 18-25 excelled in quality for the previous vintage, however, with the change of seasonal conditions, the extraordinary quality grapes moved North, on the house block, to rows 9-14. Such is the intriguing pursuit of quality.

Totally opaque black purple colour with black purple hue, with excellent cling to the glass walls. The nose has grown, perfumed top notes of violets, spice, vanilla, liquorice allsorts and confectionary with just a touch of mocha emerging as an end note. Outstanding weight and mouthfeel. Black and white pepper flavours are particularly pronounced on the palate. Very ripe flavours of blackberry and confectionary are totally enhanced
by the black and white pepper creating a powerful mouthfeel that lasts for minutes into the aftertaste. Complex structure, with near velvet smooth tannins. An exceptional red. Aftertaste of vanilla, liquorice and lingering black pepper.
Cellar 5-8 years (2011-2014)
