McLaren Vale enjoys an unrivalled reputation in Australia and indeed the world, for Shiraz grapes with fully developed characters, translating into wines of excellent fruit and fine length. The original Penny’s Hill Vineyard is at the very foothills east of McLaren Vale, slightly cooler than the valley floor, a legacy of extremely low yielding vines which produce fruit of amazing richness and complexity. Only the most splendid rows are hand picked for inclusion into the icon Footprint Shiraz. Grapes are open fermented on skins for a fortnight, followed by pressing into an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak barriques for eighteen months maturation before the final assemblage.
Dark, black scarlet hues. Blackberry and dark plum fruit bouquets, black olives, cedarwood in support of underlying savouryness. Purity of provenance, elegance, minerality and focused oak, underlying layers of stunningly perfumed opaque fruit, a fully opulent wine of intensity and drive, resolves on a lingering length of black, blue and purple currant fruits.
