All Vintages of this wine

Penfolds Magill Estate is a single vineyard Shiraz from the eastern suburbs of Adelaide City. The beautiful dark and shiny crimson Magill Estate 2012 offers a rich nose with expressive notes of tobacco, cigar, brown sugar, or even star anise and clove. The palate, full and generous, has a beautiful weight as well as very ripe dark fruit flavours. Robust, with firm tannins, Magill Estate 2012 carries a great aging potential of 15 to 20 years. Young wines require a bit of aeration before they can be enjoyed.

Parker : 94 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Very deep purple-black in color, the 2012 Magill Estate Shiraz is made with 100% estate fruit and is aged 15 months in 65% new French oak and 30% new American oak and 5% in one year old American oak hogsheads (for a total of 95% new oak). The nose opens to aromas of warm blackberries and black cherries - very pure fruit scents - plus plenty of cedar, cloves and a lovely spiciness of Sichuan pepper. Taut, vibrant and expressive with a touch of vanilla coming through on the palate, this medium-bodied Shiraz has firm and grainy tannins and a long, lively finish.
