Ok buy for the price. Not overly impressed. Tight nose, some spice and blackberry scents. Well balanced, not too hot, with some sweet blackberry but not a powerful palate.

A pretty typical Shiraz, lots of red and black fruit on the nose and mouth, a little hotter than many though. Nice structure, drink now. Nothing special, but a good value at the 10 to 11 bones it's selling for.

A full, deep, and complex shiraz. Floral notes on the nose due to the viognier that blend well with the deep spices and berry notes of shiraz, a truly nice balance.

Totally drinkable without being outstanding. The short finish keeps it from shining, however, it is a fine bargain, and quite good. Shiraz/Viognier blends are a good idea: see The Laughing Magpie.

A fine little wine in this price point. Right out of the gate, this one will smack you on the nose a bit. Give it time and it rolls quite nicely on the tongue. Beautiful dark color, deep blackberry flavor and a name that will amuse you for days. A wonderful buy when we picked it up for $10. We'll get some more for tonight!

Established by Susie and Tony Parkinson in 1988, with the purchase of 32 hectares of grazing land on the foothills east of McLaren Vale, Penny's Hill Vineyard was named after the hill at the base of which it is located. The land was declared ideal for the cultivation of Shiraz and the first vines were planted in 1991. Additional vineyards have since been purchased near Wilunga in an area originally known as Bay of Biscay. Penny's Hill first appeared in packaged form when the "red dot" graced a small batch of 1995 Shiraz - only 141 cases were released in May 1997. The red dot idea occurred as the result of looking at paintings in commercial art galleries. It was apparent that works sold could be easily and immediately identified upon entering a gallery. It was the visual power of the little red dot that is still very much a feature of Penny's Hill. Whilst McLaren Vale is noted for consistent climatic conditions, the slightly hig...

A full bodied, rich and powerful offering, this wine is made complex by the ferminity of its perfumed nose, concentrated deep purple ruby colour, fine grained, balanced tannins and a sweet juicy palate.

McLaren Vale has an unrivaled reputation in Australia, and indeed the world, for growing full-flavored Shiraz that is ripe yet balanced. This one makes use of a technique perfected in France's Côte-Rôtie: the winemakers add a little Viognier to the mix, creating a stunning and complex wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes--Wine Spectator:This silky-textured white is fresh and fragrant, with lots of floral and white pepper overtones to its pear and apricot flavors, lingering well.
