Pennys Hill Cracking Black Shiraz
McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen
Planted in 1991 and added to the Penny's Hill estate vineyard group in 1993, Malpas Road is named after the pioneering family who held lands in what was originally referred to as Bay of Biscay. A reference to the relatively infertile cracking, grey black soil upon which the hand tended Shiraz patch does its work. The fissures which occur as the black soils crack apart, sever surplus root structure, a process which lessens vine vigor and enhances the virtue of the grape. Unmistakably McLaren Vale, even more so Penny's Hill.

Shiraz is sourced from the Malpas Road site and the elevated aspects of Penny's Hill. Detailed canopy management, judicious irrigation and devoted viticultural practices contribute to the quality of these exceptional parcels of Shiraz. To best reflect the variations in terroir across the vineyards, harvest of individual parcels is conducted on different days. Fruit is crushed, de-stemmed and vinified on skins in static and open fermenters for a week. Some free run and pressings complete ferments and eighteen months maturation in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barrels. Parcels are kept separate throughout the process to preserve the individual character of site within the final assemblage.
 
Dark cherry red colour. Currant and blueberry fruit fragrances with a lifted violet perfume, followed by spice and lightly toasted French oak. Lovely primary forest fruits and red currants with traces of spice and silky milk chocolate tannins at the finish. Ready to drink alongside steak and vegetables.
Pennys Hill Edwards Road Cabernet
McLaren Vale

The five acres site is surrounded by a rich diversity of flourishing native flora and fauna, all supported by the ecologically sustainable land management of the vineyard. Fruit is harvested off hand tended, low yielding narrow planted rows of vine which run north to south down the sloping site. Grapes are destemmed and crushed, parcels are separately fermented on skins for a week at temperatures peaking to 30¬įC. Batches are pressed and returned with the free run juices, into a high proportion of new French and American oak barrels for sixteen months maturation, before assembling into the finished wine.
 
Deep bright red colour. Rich, red fruit nose, spices and savoury earth bouquet. Hints of black cherry, plum and a caramel sweetness are embedded within the many layers of complexity. An extraordinary weight of fruit on the palate, Edwards Road exudes McLaren Vale Cabernet vegetal fruit flavours, finishing on a generous length of exquisitely drying tannins.

McLaren Vale enjoys an unrivalled reputation in Australia and indeed the world, for Shiraz grapes with fully developed characters, translating into wines of excellent fruit and fine length. The original Penny’s Hill Vineyard is at the very foothills east of McLaren Vale, slightly cooler than the valley floor, a legacy of extremely low yielding vines which produce fruit of amazing richness and complexity. Only the most splendid rows are hand picked for inclusion into the icon Footprint Shiraz. Grapes are open fermented on skins for a fortnight, followed by pressing into an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak barriques for eighteen months maturation before the final assemblage.
 
Dark, black scarlet hues. Blackberry and dark plum fruit bouquets, black olives, cedarwood in support of underlying savouryness. Purity of provenance, elegance, minerality and focused oak, underlying layers of stunningly perfumed opaque fruit, a fully opulent wine of intensity and drive, resolves on a lingering length of black, blue and purple currant fruits.
Pennys Hill Malpas Road Merlot
McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen
The Malpas family planted four scant acres of clone D3V14 Merlot vines to an auspicious block of dark, dry Bay of Biscay soils in 1991.

Bunches are destemmed, crushed and vinified on skins for a week, followed by a press into seasoned French oak for malolactic and eighteen months maturation. Bright cherry and blueberry fruit, red licorice and savoury spice, supple tannins and soft, lengthy finish.

Penny's Hill is an eighteen acre block, planted to Shiraz by proprietors Susie and Tony Parkinson in 1991. Narrow rows and high density plantings saw a move away from traditional viticultural practices and has contributed to the quality of harvest, year in and year out. Fruit is destemmed and treated to several days of open fermentation on skins prior to pressing. By keeping parcels separate throughout the vinification, a range of styles can be considered from which to assemble the ultimate McLaren Vale Shiraz. Choice batches, free run and pressings complete their ferments in a high proportion of new French oak barriques, followed by eighteen months maturation.

Post pressing, each separate batch is transferred to a combination of new and prior use French and American oak barrels. The wines are assembled after a year, as the integration of fruit, oak and softening of tannins are complete.

Penny's Hill is are renowned for their distinctive red dot packaging and overwhelming critical acclaim ever since the inaugural 1995 vintage

Penny's Hill remain committed to producing the very finest fruit from their superlative estate vineyards, the superior Penny's Hill site, Goss Corner and Malpas Road properties. Penny's Hill are housed at Ingleburne, originally owned by Thomas Overton who farmed the land and established a Dernier school on the property in 1848. Ingleburne was established by Thomas Goss who leased and later purchased the property in 1854. Goss had the good fortune to return from the Victorian goldfields some fifteen hundred pounds for the better. No doubt this enabled him to build the double storied residence, so long a landmark on the way south from McLaren Vale to Willunga.

Pennys Hill

Ingleburne remained continuously in the hands of the Goss and Rowland families until it was bought in 1998 by Susie and Tony Parkinson as the new base for their Penny's Hill label. A major restoration and the development of a new cellars, gallery and function facility has been undertaken including the erection around the boundary of an impressive limestone wall by local artisan Tige McMillan. Ingleburne is able to host a wide variety of function activities. And will continue to graze sheep, feed chooks and grow nice green grass. Art is represented by Red Dot Gallery, a venture with artist David Dridan, which ensures the representation of a wide range of painters and sculptors.

Penny's Hill have a policy of minimal use of fertilizers on the vines. Pest and disease management is all about preventative measures and minimising the use of chemicals within the vineyards. The vineyard philosophy is simple; to maximise the quality of the Estate grown grapes. Penny's Hill keep crops to a minimum, and the vines are carefully hand maintained.

Close proximity to the winery aids ultimate quality while small batch winemaking enables us to isolate parcels to keep separate throughout the winemaking process, allowing further options for final selection and blending. Every step of the way, Penny's wines are gently guided to an ultimate balance of texture, complexity and interest.

One of the Shiraz Blocks on the Penny's Hill vineyard has shallow soils at the northern end of the vineyard, which produces tannic, deeply coloured wines. The soils become deeper, moving south, where the wine produced tends towards a more elegant and fruit-driven style. There are several picks across the vineyards over different days, so the winemakers can keep these parcels separate from the vineyard to the winery. The reds finish their fermentation in barrel. A small proportion of the Chardonnay is barrel fermented and matured in oak, and whilst the Semillon is a fresh fruit driven style, a tiny percentage spends a short time in oak to add texture. Penny's Hill gently guide their wines every step of the way through the winery, to make wines of complexity, texture and interest.

Whilst McLaren Vale is noted for consistent climatic conditions, the slightly higher elevation (approximately 140 metres above sea level) of the Penny's Hill vineyard reduces temperature extremes in summer, which means even ripening and higher fruit quality. Every step of the way, from tending the narrow planted, low yielding vineyards through to hands-on winemaking, a meticulous approach ensures wines under the Penny's Hill banner deliver an exceptional balance of texture, complexity and interest, with quality exceeding price, the ultimate objective. The internationally acclaimed, award winning estate wines of Pennyís Hill guarantee luscious flavour, elegance, balance and palate satisfaction.
