PENFOLDS MAGILL ESTATE SHIRAZ 2002
An overt smoky, barrel ferment character sits separate to, yet comfortably alongside, pencil shaving oak aromas. Cedar, cinnamon and wet charcoal nuances blend with the savoury, white chocolate and floral notes characteristic of the Magill Estate. PALATE
A palate of impeccable balance, integrated oak and an array of fruits: liqueur cherry; kirsch; malt; and Satsuma plum. A complex, layered wine with no aggression or rough edges, a result of open fermentation, basket pressing, barrel ferment and a sensitive racking programme. There is tremendous length of flavour.
