Winemaker's Notes

A modern Penfolds classic that is at once both sophisticated and hedonistic. Dense crimson red in the glass. On the nose, rich, saturated, Christmas pudding-like fruit and stylish French oak are immediately obvious, followed by more subtle aromas of dried glace fruits and underlying dark liquorice and prune. A sleek, luscious Barossa Valley Shiraz in which a core of blueberry fruit and ripe tannins contribute to phenomenal length of flavour. There is also a refined, luxurious, praline-like flavour and texture. Still very youthful, with oak more integrated on the palate than the nose, indicating a great cellaring future.

"Dense, inky purple hue. Pretty fragrances of rose petal, orange peel, pepper and cherry. Rich and supple on entry with bright cherry fruit and a nice integration of tannins and acids. Tart and drying close with stone fruit and a distinct gravelly appeal." 90 Points
