Shiraz Penfolds T. Hyland Rossi 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: <br/> 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 Adelaides eastern suburbs (just eight kilometres from the citys CBD), fruit is crushed, fermented and matured on-site at the original Penfolds Magill winery, established in 1844.<br/><br/><br/><br/> 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.<br/><br/>

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.

  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.

Strong pepper, with floral and spice, at launch. Tart plum, licorice, leather, and burnt toast mingle with cream cheese to add richness to nose. At two hours, scents of cooked beets and vegetables emerge to bring even more complexity. Pepper and spice open on the palate, met by heat on the back end and pungent acidity throughout, which lead to a sharp, acerbic finish. A sweeter cherry flavor emerges at 30 minutes, with chocolate notes broadening the array of tastes in pleasant harmony with the cherry. Fruitcake pulls the fruit tastes together to give the mid-palate cohesion, and vanilla makes fleeting appearances to lend a brighter, creamier side to the medley. In time, zestiness and a touch of citrus mask some of the astringency on the top, improving the overall balance. Most integrated at 2 to 3 hours.

Dense purple-red; has, as usual, a very different register, with life and movement to the spice and berry fruit aromas and flavours; the tannins are finer, the oak likewise. James Halliday. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2007 Penfolds Shiraz Magill Estate 1500ml

Dieser einzigartige Shiraz zeigt eine tiefe rote Farbe und duftet in der Nase nach feinschichtigen, rauchigen Holznoten, eingebettet in Zimt und Zedernnuancen, begleitet von weisser Schokolade und einem blumigen Hintergrund. Er bietet im Gaumen eine makellose Balance von perfekt integrierter Eiche und einer Reihe Fruchtaromen. Kirschlikör, Malz und Pflaumen. Ein komplexer, feinschichtiger, weicher Wein ohne aggressive Säure oder harte Kanten, ein Resultat der äusserst sorgfältigen Vinifikation. Eine enorme Aromenlänge, ein seriöser Wein, eine exzellenter Jahrgang!

Magill Estate Shiraz 2007 - Penfolds: Magill Estate Shiraz 2007 - Rotwein von PenfoldsDer Penfolds Magill Estate Shiraz 2007 ist ein Wein von höchstem symbolischem Wert, denn seine Reben wachsen auf dem ursprünglichen 5,2 ha Weinland. Er wird in der 1844 erbauten Penfolds Kellerei in Magill gekeltert.Im Glas leuchtet ein dichtes, undurchlässiges Dunkelrot. Sein Bukett zeigt sich würzig und rauchig mit Tönen von Trockenobst, Früchtebrot und Quittenpaste, zu den sich Zimt, Nelken und feiner schwarzer Pfeffer gesellen. Am Gaumen begeistert sein komplexes Aromenspiel, sehr rassig und mit kräftigen, bissigen Tanninen. Ein saftiger Schmelztiegel aus Kirschlikör, frischem Kaffee, Bitterschokolade und reifen Pflaumen. Dieser Rotwein ist sehr elegant mit mittlerem Körper, einer samtenen Textur. Ausgebaut in französischer und amerikanischer Eiche, ein sehr zeitgemäßer obwohl traditionell ausgebauter Wein.Genießen Sie ihn zu Lamm- oder Rinderbraten und saftigen Wildgerichten, zu gerösteter Wildente und kräftigen, orientalisch gewürzten Speisen.Weingut: PenfoldsLand: AustralienRegion: Barossa ValleyRebsorte: ShirazInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 7,0 g/lRestsüße: 0,8 g/lFassreife: 13 Monate Lagerfähigkeit: bis mind. 2017Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 bis 18°CAuszeichnungen: Bronze - Decanter World Wine Award 2009 Barossa Valley
