SKU: PENMAGSHI20
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 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.

Palate

There is a wonderful purity to the palate... lineal, laser focussed. An assured wine, content for the fruit to do the talking, oak relegated to a cameo role. The ancient mottled red clay soils of Magill Estate deliver their signature fruit characters dried cranberries, succulent blackberry, mulberry conserve. A suggestion of sweetness: breakfast pastries, vanillas slice, cola. Herbs? Fresh sage, dried bay leaves, thyme flowers. Ligurian olives in Rosemary olive oil. A gravelly minerality on the finish, taught. The tannins are super fine and long. A wonderful expression of this unique vineyard.
