“This is quite a firm statement of this classic Penfolds shiraz.” 

Black core with a garnet rim, on the nose this shiraz boasts a classic Penfolds aromatic profile. Very generous and lifted aromatics with sweet and savoury notes compete for attention. Interestingly, the savoury characters narrowly win the arm wrestle. A fascinating concoction of umami notes and dried herbs including rosemary and oregano. There is an abundance of dark, brooding shiraz fruit with ripe plumbs and blackberries to the fore. Floral notes of potpourri and violets provide lift.

Description

Black core with a garnet rim, on the nose this shiraz boasts a classic Penfolds aromatic profile. Very generous and lifted aromatics with sweet and savoury notes compete for attention. Interestingly, the savoury characters narrowly win the arm wrestle. A fascinating concoction of umami notes and dried herbs including rosemary and oregano. There is an abundance of dark, brooding shiraz fruit with ripe plumbs and blackberries to the fore. Floral notes of potpourri and violets provide lift.

The palate is full-bodied, rich and generous with lovely mocha, chocolate and espresso flavours. The confectioner provides black jellybean, licorice, chocolate truffles and rum and raisin. Very generous fruits fill an ample, plush mid-palate. A trip to the German cake shop: black forest cake, strudel, crème anglaise. Toasted fennel seeds and fresh tarragon. The acidity is juicy and energetic. Bold, attentive, structural graphite-like tannins hold the package together. The oak is completely absorbed, allowing the fruit to shine. The finish is long and fine, with a taught shale, mineral-like impression that lingers forever.

96 – Ray Jordan

“This is quite a firm statement of this classic Penfolds shiraz. Comes from a number of different regions and captures the character and style that is warm climate shiraz in Australia. Dark chocolate and black pudding with a plummy black currant richness. The palate shows firm grainy tannins with the oak perfectly weighted.”
