From its first tiny production of 141 cases of 1995 Shiraz, Penny's Hill has established a world reputation for outstanding vineyard management and an exceptional range of super-premium wines. This is our first offering and the only available vintage, which offers up blackberry and dark plum fruits with savoury / earthy notes, black olive and cedar. Remarkably opulent, layered with a magical intensity. This ’04 Shiraz truly reflects the terroir and character of McLaren Vale.

Robert Parker - The 2004 Shiraz reveals layers of fruit along with pure creme de cassis characteristics interwoven with notions of blackberries and smoke. Possessing a layered texture, a huge, opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, superb purity, and a fine finish, it has the potential to be even better than the 2003.

Penny's Hill, McLaren Vale, Australia

Region

McLaren Vale is situated south of The Barossa Valley in South Eastern Australia. The local climates vary enormously according to altitude and exposure to the cooling sea breezes. Red grapes flourish here due to the warm climate and varied soil type and the region is best known for soft and juicy Shiraz, old-vine Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The climate is similar to that of the Mediterranean climate with four clear seasons. We can highly recommend the producers Kay Brothers, Clarendon Hills and Shirvington Estate from whom we have some fantastic wines.
