Penfolds Shiraz Hyland 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Eine Aromenexplosion. Gleichzeitig fruchtig (Zwetschgen und Brombeeren) und salzig (mariniertes Fleisch). Dazu kommen Aromen vom Eichenholz von nussig-würzig bis zu gerösteten Kaffee- und Kakaobohnen. Am Gaumen zeigt der Magill Estate eine elegante und saubere Struktur mit präsenten Tanninen. Die komplexe fruchtwürzige Aromatik bis zum Ende macht den Wein zu einem harmonischen Gesamtbild.

  Tired of boring old wines from Australia? No? Then you can probably thank Penfolds Wines. Penfolds, founded in 1844 by Mary and Dr. Penfold (Mary gets top billing since she took care of most of the early management and winemaking responsibilities), has completely revolutionized not only its own product lines throughout the years, but also many wines in Australia as a whole. The wine produced by Penfolds was originally prescribed as tonic wines for anaemic patients, with the wine made from Grenache. By 1870, with 60 acres under vine, they were producing many more wines. In the 1920s and 1930s, Penfolds was known for its fortified wine, like many other wineries in the area. 1943 marked the start of a massive expansion for Penfolds Winery, with first the acquisition of Auldana Vineyard and its winery, and then the purchase of Kalimna Vineyard in 1945. By the end of the decade, they owned vineyards in McLaren Vale, Griffith, the Hunter Valley, and Minchinbury. Around the same time, winemaker Max Schubert returned from oversees with a completely new vision for the future of the winery. In the 50s, he started experimenting with the red wine he called Grange, which is a mix of primarily Shiraz and a little Cabernet Sauvignon, and by the 1960s the wine had spread across the Australian wine industry. Not wanting to stop with merely one of the most successful wine projects in the history of Australia, Penfolds Wines started the “White Grange” project in the 1990s, leading to the immensely popular and publicized release of the Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay. Peter Gago became their Chief Winemaker in 2002, and he, along with three winemakers in charge of red wine and one in charge of white, continue the tradition of experimentation and evolution.

The Penfolds Thomas Hyland range honors the pioneering spirit of Thomas Hyland, son-in-law of Dr. Christopher Rawson Penfold. Hyland's stewardship of the company from the late 1800s until 1914 saw the development of what, in his lifetime, became Australia's most famous name in wine. This Thomas Hyland 2010 Shiraz, from what Decanter Magazine recently stated "could be the best vintage for Australian Shiraz in 20 years", contains plenty of juicy blackberry fruit aromas and flavors, chocolaty, ripe tannins and savory oak nuances. Grapes were sourced predominantly from the Barossa, McLaren Vale and Upper Adelaide regions and thewine age 12 months in French and American oak barrels. The Wine Advocate scored this 90 points saying "The 2010 Thomas Hyland Shiraz displays a deep garnet-purple color and aromas of ripe blackberry and cherry preserves plus hints of bacon, pepper, tree bark and cedar. Concentrated and taut on the medium-bodied palate, it has crisp acidity and a medium level of grainy tannins, finishing long. Drink it now to 2019." Super value!
