Winemaker's Notes

"Deep ruby. Sexy, expressive red and dark berry aromas are brightened by floral and mineral nuances. Very sweet on entry but the raspberry and cassis flavors are nicely enlivened by zesty acidity and a hint of orange peel. Crisp berry skin tones define the long, juicy finish, which leaves a lingering note of fresh raspberry. This boasts impressive depth and purity, especially at this price."
-International Wine Cellar

After a wet winter, spring was cool to mild followed by a warm, dry summer. The 2005 harvest saw plenty of sunshine and very little rain. These conditions produced intense flavors, aromatics and colors.

The 2005 Hyland Shiraz expresses distinctive Coonawarra regionality and structure unique to the Penley Estate property. This elegant, full-bodied wine leads with aromas of ripe berry and spice followed by subtle smoky oak. Savory dark berry flavors with hints of white pepper are heightened by the velvety texture and finish.

Drink now or cellar up to five years for additional complexity.

I found it to be incredibly smooth and delicate for Shiraz. Dangerously easy on the palate. At less than $20/bottle, I found it to be quite the bargain.

I think I got lucky and found this wine at a throw-away price. I really hit the jackpot, this stuff is great. Almost cabernet like, not too spicy. Lots of fruit and body. Too bad the price went up.

Young and friuty with a big finish... this wine could last up to 5 years and only get better with age. Even so, it is enjoyable now as a versatile table wine for the masses during the holidays.
