Penfolds Magill Estate Shiraz 2016 750ml

SKU: 6002397

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.

Fruit is crushed, fermented and matured on-site at the original Penfolds Magill winery, established in 1844. 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 the original way: hand-picked, vinified in open fermenters and then basket pressed to complete fermentation in barrel.

  • Nose

    Already mentioned – very Penfolds … instantly from the very first inhalation.
    Florals omnipresent – lavender, lilac, nasturtium?
    Welcomed V.A. propelled by Magill fruits, coupled by a barrel ferment nut husk(iness).
    Now to the ever so alluring bakery artefact:
    • Croissant … sweet/flaky pastry (oak derived?)
    • Crème brulée … burnt sugar (and hazelnut/mocha Italian liqueur?)
    • Torte … chocolate/truffle, praline

  • Palate

    Forceful. A palate certainly densely packed, yet still structurally meshed, woven.
    In 2016 the microclimate(s) and soils of Magill’s undulating 5.2ha have released flavours of liquorice (red), anise, sour cherry and molasses.
    Also, and not to omit – hazelnut brulée snap/crust, possibly derived via both oak and fruit?
    A structural sum of its (winemaking) parts – open fermentation/daily rack and returns/basket pressed/barrel fermentation – texturally consistent, tannins explained; balance and longevity ensured.
    A Magill 2016 time capsule in your 750ml bottle. Might some of what is noted above still be perceived in the decades ahead? All will be revealed … in time.
