The 2010 vintage of the Penfolds' Magill Estate is adorned with a dark purple tinged colour. The nose is an explosion of flavors of plum, blackcurrant, spices, dried meat, coffee and chocolate. On the palate it is precise with an evolution marked by fruits and powdery tannins. Located east of the city of Adelaide, the Magill Estate's vineyard covers 5.2 hectares planted exclusively with Syrah. The vine growing is traditional harvest done by hand and winemaking is processed on site as well as aging in oak barrels.
Parker : 94+ / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2010 Magill Estate Shiraz is deep garnet-purple in color and shows ripe cassis, blackberry and plum preserve aromas highlighted by lifted notes of roses, chocolate box and a touch of cedar. Medium to full-bodied, it is packed with rich, concentrated and refined flavors and framed with medium-firm, grainy tannins through the long finish. It should go on and on for a long time. Drink it from 2014 to 2026+.
