Pennys Hill Cracking Black Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
Planted in 1991 and added to the Penny's Hill estate vineyard group in 1993, Malpas Road is named after the pioneering family who held lands in what was originally referred to as Bay of Biscay. A reference to the relatively infertile cracking, grey black soil upon which the hand tended Shiraz patch does its work. The fissures which occur as the black soils crack apart, sever surplus root structure, a process which lessens vine vigor and enhances the virtue of the grape. Unmistakably McLaren Vale, even more so Penny's Hill.

Shiraz is sourced from the Malpas Road site and the elevated aspects of Penny's Hill. Detailed canopy management, judicious irrigation and devoted viticultural practices contribute to the quality of these exceptional parcels of Shiraz. To best reflect the variations in terroir across the vineyards, harvest of individual parcels is conducted on different days. Fruit is crushed, de-stemmed and vinified on skins in static and open fermenters for a week. Some free run and pressings complete ferments and eighteen months maturation in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barrels. Parcels are kept separate throughout the process to preserve the individual character of site within the final assemblage.
Dark cherry red colour. Currant and blueberry fruit fragrances with a lifted violet perfume, followed by spice and lightly toasted French oak. Lovely primary forest fruits and red currants with traces of spice and silky milk chocolate tannins at the finish. Ready to drink alongside steak and vegetables.
