Penny’s Hill is a relatively new operation in McLaren Vale, having produced it’s first vintage in 1995. It was apparent from the outset that the operation was well considered. By purchasing the old Ingleburne homestead, it gave the company a historic context. The vineyards were carefully selected and run by expert viticulturalist, David Paxton, who has since passed on the responsibility to Toby Bekkers. There is a real commitment to produce exceptional fruit. The vines are hand pruned, vertically shoot positioned and trellised using a single cordon. Penny’s Hill has a policy of minimal use of fertilizers, enforcing this with petiole analyses of the leaves each season to identify deficiencies that can then be remedied using organic fertilizer. In the winery, the magic touch of Ben Riggs and his team ensures that the wine will have Classic McLaren Vale 'joosiness', concentration and power. Finally, Tony Parkinson’s marketing skills ensure that the wine remains visible in a very crowded market place.
An elegant, refined, yet powerful Shiraz.
Very deep, almost opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. Aroma of violet, toasted oak, vanilla, spice, blackberry and black pepper, displaying strong and impressive varietal characters. Mouthfilling palate, with liquorice, blackberry, vanilla and cedar flavours emerging. Not as ‘joosy’ as the 2004, but nonetheless a classic McLaren Vale Shiraz – reflecting the 2005 vintage. Fine grained, dryish tannins. Long blackberry, spice and black pepper aftertaste.
Cellar 3-4 years (2009-2010)
