Penley Hyland Shiraz 2017
Dark crimson in colour with a rich red hue. The aroma is varietal with vibrant blueberry / raspberry fruit, with complex mocha nuances and subtle but well integrated smoky oak. The flavour is rich displaying strong varietal fruit flavours and silky smooth tannins. The restrained oak compliments the soft and rich middle palate which leads to a smooth and lengthy finish. This is a medium to full bodied style of wine with a solid structure.Balance is a key feature in all Penley Wines, ensuring successful bottle maturation. This wine shows dominance of fruit with hints of smoky oak and grape tannin. Distinct but elegant Coonawarra Shiraz characters are evident. 25% new French and American oak was used. A wine made to enjoy while still young.
