SKU: PENMAGSHI17MAG
The single-vineyard Magill Estate Shiraz is intrinsically linked to Penfolds beginnings. Sourced from the Magill vineyard on the edge of Adelaide’s eastern suburbs (just eight kilometres from the city’s CBD), fruit is crushed, fermented and matured on-site at the original Penfolds Magill Estate Winery, established in 1844. Magill Estate Shiraz, first produced in 1983, is an elegant, medium-weight style with velvety texture and fine tannins, matured in both French and American oak. It is a sleek, contemporary wine, yet crafted the original way: hand-picked, vinified in open fermenters and then basket pressed to complete fermentation in barrel.

Wine Style

Red - big, bold, full-bodied

Palate

Balanced, fresh, alluring. Succulent, mouth-watering acidity coupled with fine, feathery tannins – all in tandem with the wine’s medium-bodied engagement. Cherry and pistachio (nougat) and cranberry (muesli bar) flavours spark interest. This, coupled with cola/chinotto and a beguiling ‘flintiness’, opens a flavour and textural window for any lover of Italian red wine channelling Magill Estate!
