Personalised Penny's Hill Cracking Black Shiraz 2019 14.5% 750ml

Expert Review:
James Halliday- 94 points, This offers exceptional value. 7-10 days on skins, before quality French oak for 16 months, a smidgeon (15%) new. This is a plump rich red. The usual cavalcade of black fruits and spice, sure, but what makes this a joy to drink is the effortless mouthfeel. A gentle sash of tannins. Floral scents. A trickle of acidity rather than a forcefield. The wine just sits there, buoyant, mellow and juicy.

From its first production of 141 cases of 1995 Shiraz, Penny's Hill has established a fine reputation for outstanding vineyards from which acclaimed estate wines have emerged. Very much a part of the recent McLaren Vale landscape, the Penny's Hill story commenced in 1988 with the purchase of the original vineyard site. The brand message: "Proudly Australian. More so McLaren Vale." Fine full-bodied, fruit driven wines are the result of premium estate-grown fruit from some of the best quality vineyards in the region. A meticulous approach every step of the way, from the narrow-planted, low yielding vineyards and throughout the winemaking process, Penny's Hill wines deliver an ultimate balance of texture, complexity and interest, with quality well above price being the outcome sought.
