The 2018 Shiraz Magill Estate aged in 100% new oak (70% French and 30% American), which has left its cedar, vanilla mark on the wine, but in a balanced, harmonious way. It's a full-bodied wine, with big berry fruit and lush oak, but those components are beautifully judged, coming together in a fine, elegant wine. The Magill Shiraz is extremely scarce and the 2018 gets 90+ points as always from Parker, Suckling and Wine Spectator. Give the wine some air before drinking (decanting is recommended), which will soften the firm tannins!

Vineyard for 2018 Penfolds Shiraz Magill Estate

Penfolds is Australia's oldest and most iconic winery with a history and legacy that reflects the country's journey from colonial settlement to the modern era. The winery was founded in 1844 by Dr. Christopher Rawson Penfold who emigrated with his wife from England to South Australia to plant his French vines on Magill Estate.

The reason for this was not to make Australia's best wine, but to find a cure for anemia. Christopher believed in the medicinal properties of wine and used it in his family practice which grew in reputation.

The Australian wine industry, including Penfolds, changed dramatically with the arrival of winemaker Max Schubert, who invented world-famous Grange and Bin wines. In 1988 Max Schubert was named 'Man of the year' by Decanter Magazine and Penfolds Grange 1955 is now listed as a National Heritage Site. Penfolds has an extraordinary collection of awards and with each generation of winemakers, Max Schubert's remarkable vision is nurtured and enhanced. Today, Peter Gago is the 'Guardian of the Grange' and sets the standard for all Penfolds wines. It was even named a 'Most Admired Wine Brand' by Drinks International at the beginning of 2019 and many more awards are likely to follow
