Sourced from the McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek and Wrattonbully. This is a slightly spicy, blue- and black-fruited kind of wine with undertones of liquorice and herbs; a really nicely cut mataro influence shapes the character of the nose. The open-knit palate delivers redder fruit flavors leading into richer, darker and more brooding black fruits, smooth tannins and a plum-stone finish. Oak is very subtle, especially in the context of the Penfolds stable. Drink now or cellar through to 2022+.
Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
