The single vineyard Magill Estate Shiraz is intrinsically linked to Penfolds' beginnings. Sourced from the original Magill vineyard (5.2 ha) 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, 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.
The historic and heritage-protected Penfolds Magill Estate is one of the few single vineyards in the world located within city boundaries.
Penfolds Magill Estate Shiraz was developed after the vineyard was saved from being engulfed by urban development, with a single estate wine being compelling justification for the continued use of this vineyard (by then, just 5.2 hectares of the 120 hectares which once covered an entire hillside).
The aim was to create a wine which showed the character of the vineyard but was more elegant in style than most Penfolds reds.
The Magill Estate style has evolved over the years. The early vintages were quite lean and tight. From the early 1990s the wine shows greater fruit definition and palate vitality. Winemakers are particularly interested in flavour development and tannin ripeness, resulting in wines with supple structures and more fruit richness.
The 2010 Magill Estate Shiraz is deep garnet-purple in color and shows ripe cassis, blackberry and plum preserve aromas highlighted by lifted notes of roses, chocolate box and a touch of cedar. Medium to full-bodied, it is packed with rich, concentrated and refined flavors and framed with medium-firm, grainy tannins through the long finish. It should go on and on for a long time. Drink it from 2014 to 2026+.
