Penfolds Magill Estate Shiraz 2019

Adelaide Plains, South Australia, AustraliaMagill Estate is always French and American oak, always made in open-top-fermenters, and always basket-pressed. Like Grange and 707, it always completes its fermentation in barrel, the same way Magill reds were made 177 years ago. Eight kilometres from Adelaide, the 1844 site has been completely overhauled and resurrected under winemaker Peter Gago’s eye as a tribute to the property’s stature within the Penfolds ethos. It is a refined version of Oz shiraz with medium weight and soft, lush textures with a rush of savoury dried herbs, a touch of roasted meat, a dusting of oak, and black fruit. Drink or hold, but the lush textures will pull you in every time. Gago says, “It gets what it gets; no additions, only deletions."Tasted: 10 September 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
