Penny's Hill Shiraz Mclaren Vale Footprint 2003

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The 2003 Shiraz is a 100% Shiraz from such regions as Langhorne Creek, Riverland, McLaren Vale, and Fleuriu. Twenty percent was aged in oak, and the rest in tank. No wimpish red at 14.8% alcohol, it reveals a deep ruby/purple color, a big, peppery, black currant and cherry-scented bouquet, loads of flavor, and a hint of earth in the background. Supple-textured and luscious, it delivers a lot of flavor as well as character for the price. Consume it during its first 1ndash;2 years of life.

From its first production of 141 cases of 1995 Shiraz, Penny's Hill has established a fine reputation for outstanding vineyards from which acclaimed wines have emerged. Very much a part of the recent McLaren Vale landscape, the Penny's Hill story commenced over twenty years ago. From its beginnings on bare grazing land upon which cows and sheep had long trod, the brand is now reflected in some of the very best quality vineyards in the region, fine full-bodied wines which are sold to loyal and appreciative wine lovers not only locally but in all discerning export markets, and a cellar door and restaurant complex recognised nationally for its excellence of food and service, for its iconic location and for its direct links to the farming traditions of the greater region. Welcome to Penny's Hill and its unique story. Read less

Light in texture, with pretty blueberry and mint flavors. Drink now.

Welcome in one of Premierrsquo;s most recent shiraz additions; it had to travel all the way from out in ldquo;woop wooprdquo; to get here! (ldquo;Woop wooprdquo; is an Australian term for a place in the middle of nowhere.) Wonderfully juicy, plump, and smooth, with good black cherry fruit and soft tannins, this shiraz would pair well with roast beef, turkey or pasta with red sauce.
