Personalised Penny’s Hill The Specialized 2017 14.5% 750ml

The wines of Penny’s Hill embody the essence of McLaren Vale with their richness and ability to show what the region does best. The spicy, peppery Shiraz is well supported by the plummy characters from the Cabernet and Merlot and a dash of toasty oak. A well balanced, flavoursome blend drinking beautifully now or if Stored carefully, ‘The Specialized’ will develop and improve in bottle for another 5-8 years.

Expert Review:
James Halliday- 94 points, A 50/32/18% blend, each variety vinified separately and matured in 20% new oak. Regional and varietal influences lock horns the moment the wine enters the mouth. It's not a common blend in Australia, and seldom in other parts of the world, but held together under an umbrella of generosity.

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.
