Notes sourced from Southcorp Wines.
The historic winery buildings at Penfolds Magill Estate were built over a century ago from bluestone quarried in the nearby Adelaide Hills. Statuesque, timeless and home to a tradition of fortified winemaking, they are the inspiration for this fine bluestone tawny. In 1844 Doctor Christopher Rawson Penfold and his wife Mary planted vines on the slopes of Magill just outside the infant settlement of Adelaide, South Australia to produce fortified wine. Such was the excellence of this wine that it took over from medicine as the Penfold family's chief source of income. A great Australian dynasty was born. Penfolds unique style comes from its traditional winemaking philosophy which ensures that each release of every wine is consistent. At every stage in the winemaking process, quality takes precedence over quantity.
Grape Varieties: Shiraz, Mataro and Muscadelle.
Oak Maturation: Various older small oak hogsheads.
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol 19.0%; Preservative (220) added
Winemaker Dean Kraehenbuhl's Comments: A blend of fine aged tawnies from the Penfolds cellars. Penfolds Magill Bluestone Tawny is a blend of the traditional red varieties used in the majorityof Penfolds tawnies to produce a wine rich in fruit and age complexity, having a smooth flavoursomepalate and a lingering finish. Maturation in older small oak hogsheads ensures the wine gains an attractive tawny colour and development of varietal fruit characters without excessive oak extraction.The spirit used is a subtle brandy style spirit designed to add complexity and body on the palate while maintaining fruit integrity.
Serving and cellaring suggestions: It is recommended to serve Magill Bluestone with full flavoured cheeses, dried fruit and nuts. The bottle should be stored upright, not on its side.
