Magill Estate Shiraz 2017 Gift Pack
95 points, “The acidity sits up in vibrant style and there’s a fine, succulent and long, refined finish.” – James Suckling
The Magill Estate is where Penfolds all began. And to maximise your drinking pleasure of this historic and epic wine, we’ve slipped this precious bottle into a gift bag with an exclusive branded corkscrew and aerating pourer.
This single, urban vineyard was first established in 1844 and the 100% Shiraz grown here only goes into the Magill Estate Shiraz and Grange. A contemporary wine that’s created the traditional way (handpicking, open fermenters, basket pressing and matured in barrels), it feels like you are tasting the progression of the Australian wine industry in this one single bottle. Black cherry, nutty praline, raspberries and cream, spices, toffee, peppery biltong, cola bottles and cranberry; it’s truly beguiling stuff and quite different from the rest of the Penfolds range.
Penfolds is certainly Australia’s, and possibly one of the world’s, most iconic wine producers. Established in 1844, it boasts an enviable history that most wineries in the Old World would give their right arm for. Most famous for its flagship wine, Penfolds Grange, which is the very definition of Australian fine wine and the 1955 vintage was even described by Wine Spectator as one of the “Wines of the Century”. Penfolds owe much of their success to Max Schubert, their winemaker who travelled to Europe after World War II and came back with all kinds of secrets. His innovative, often multi-regional, blends have become part of the DNA of Penfolds, and now the wines are the choice of connoisseurs and collectors all over the world.
