Penfold Magill Est 05 750ml

Magill Estate Shiraz is a very important Penfolds single vineyard wine.

It is of great symbolic importance because it is completely created in the remaining original vineyard (5.2 ha) and the original Penfolds winery at Magill, established in 1844 in Adelaide's eastern suburbs. First produced in 1983, Penfolds 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 120+ year-old winery: hand-picked, vinified in open fermenters and then basket pressed. Careful vineyard management (sacrificial canes, fruit thinning, relegation), batching and subsequent separation of ferments pay welcome dividends.

Tasting Notes
Colour A deep, dark-red sheen/gloss.
Nose The nose is distinctive and defined with the barrel-ferment elements of cola, sarsaparilla and char alongside black olive, soy, sage and leather notes. Oak plays a more prominent role, supporting a smoked meat overlay, embedded with orange, lemon and juniper. An unmistakeable Penfolds formic/tar Bouquet
Taste The palate is focused with the flavours and textures true to style. Tannins are firm and obvious - tight and chalky, not expansive and coarse. Oak is integrated - the cedar, vanillins and citrus notes are possibly illustrative of both French and American oak origins. This release is reminiscent of the 1994 vintage, albeit the vines of this Penfolds monopole are now more than 10 years older.
Food matches Ideal with beef, duck and game.
Region Blocks 1, 2 and 3 of the Magill Estate Vineyard.
