2011 Magill Estate

Post by AHB » 11:11 Sat 02 May 2015

100% Shiraz from grapes grown on the remaining original land bought by Dr Penfold. Deep red and 95% opaque. Firm in tone but with no purple. Floral and fragrant nose with lots of deep purple cornflowers and raspberries. Poised and balanced entry, soft and restrained. High in acidty gives a thin feel to the texture. Hints of tannins and oak but the fruit is somewhat light. Raspberries show on the aftertaste and oaky finish. 85/100. Drunk 27-Mar-15.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
