The single vineyard Magill Estate Shiraz is intrinsically linked to Penfolds beginnings. Sourced from the original 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 winery, established in 1844.
First produced in 1983, Magill Estate Shiraz 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 in the old fashioned way in the 160 year-old winery: hand-picked, vinified in open fermenters and then basket pressed.
On the Nose- An aromatic explosion—at once fruity (plum and blackberry) and savoury (spicy sausage meat, terrine avec aspic). Char/spice volatiles of meat on-a-spit couple with barrel ferment nuttiness and scents of dark-roasted coffee beans/chocolate. Yes, the fermented fruits off this 78 Penfold Road address, open fermenters, basket pressing… and bespoke élevage have again woven the aromatic web that is Magill.
On the palate- Stylishly medium-bodied, with an open-weaved, layered structure, finishing clean and precise. A sumptuous mid-palate laden with blackberry and plum fruits and defined tannins. Savoury notes detected on nose permeate the palate, exuding a pan-juice/jus richness.
