Bottle of Penfolds The Penfolds Collection Magill Estate Shiraz 2013 Bottle Cork


Magill Estate Shiraz 2013

The single-vineyard Magill Estate Shiraz is intrinsically linked to Penfolds beginnings. Sourced from the original Magill vineyard on the edge of Adelaide’s eastern suburbs.

Fruit is crushed, fermented and matured on-site at the original Penfolds Magill winery, established in 1844. Magill Estate Shiraz is an elegant, medium-weight style with velvety texture and fine tannins, matured in both French and American oak. It is a sleek, contemporary wine, yet crafted the original way: hand-picked, vinified in open fermenters and then basket pressed to complete fermentation in barrel.



2018 - 2032. 

Taste Description

Bright mauve core. Dark.

The sweet: chocolate mousse, bruléed custard, blackberry.
The savoury: raw wet ham, corned beef, freshly cooked silverside, green olive.
The rest: fresh leather (wallet) and spice notes – nutmeg/cinnamon (from oak?), ginger, soy.

Medium to full-bodied.
Flavours akin to white sultana cake, dates…and a touch of freshly tanned suede.
Balanced oak, and a perception of spice from French oak, with a creaminess from the American?
Long and persistent, propelled by fine mouth-coating tannins and tempered acidity.
Distinctive and unique. Quite elegant.

Vintage Conditions
The Magill Estate vineyard experienced almost perfect conditions during the 2013 vintage. Revitalising winter rain was followed by a dry, disease free spring and summer period. There were some warm days around Christmas and in early January which put the vines under a certain amount of stress, however full soil moisture profiles helped maintain healthy vineyard canopies throughout vintage. Fruit was harvested in pristine condition, picked on February 14th and 15th 2013.
