'Cracking Black' Shiraz, Penny's Hill, 75cl
As the land acquired in 1988 for the establishment of vineyards by Tony & Susie Parkinson sat on foothills at the base of Penny’s Hill, east of McLaren Vale, so the vineyard was named. In 1991 they planted the initial narrow-rows of Shiraz, aimed at minimum crops for maximum quality, and with the 1995 vintage the decision was made to bottle and label a small quantity of wine under the distinctive ‘red dot’ packaging. Behind the slogan 'Proudly Australian. More so McLaren Vale', Penny’s Hill is now an established premium estate producer of award-winning, fruit driven wines which reflect the outstanding diversity of terroir upon which McLaren Vale has grown its reputation.
Paying homage to the black Bay of Biscay soils which contribute elegance and finesse to the mighty Shiraz wines of the region. Generous red berry and plum fruits with hints of spice, aniseed and chocolate.
