Penny's Hill is an eighteen acre block, planted to Shiraz by proprietors Susie and Tony Parkinson in 1991. Narrow rows and high density plantings saw a move away from traditional viticultural practices and has contributed to the quality of harvest, year in and year out. Fruit is destemmed and treated to several days of open fermentation on skins prior to pressing. By keeping parcels separate throughout the vinification, a range of styles can be considered from which to assemble the ultimate McLaren Vale Shiraz. Choice batches, free run and pressings complete their ferments in a high proportion of new French oak barriques, followed by eighteen months maturation.
Deep, dark crimson red. Sweet red currant and blackberry fruit supported by vanillin spice and a perfumed lift. Rich, ripe dark berry fruit complemented by layers of spice, dried herbs and chocolate. Great length and intensity, all the defining characteristics of a big rich black wine, chocolate and earth combine to create a delicious persistence. Indulged by extended maturation in the finest oak, a McLaren Vale Shiraz of generous flavour, consistency and renown.
