Trophy "Best Shiraz" 2018 Winewise Small Vignerons Awards
Gold Medal - 2018 MPVA Wine Show
Montalto Pennon Hill Shiraz bursts with sweet primary fruit aromas of raspberries, blueberries and plums and a complex array of fragrances including liquorice, black olives, pepper, nutmeg and cloves.
Juicy red fruits merge with some meaty, savoury and spicy notes and are well supported by the gentle French oak. The tannins in our Pennon Hill Shiraz are youthful and fine and the palate has a rich and balanced presence with a moreish acidity providing drive and length.
A complex array of fragrances; liquorice, black olives, pepper, nutmeg and cloves combine with brooding black and blue fruits. There’s some gentle whole bunch fragrance adding to the complexity. Plush fruit flavours merge with meaty and spicy notes and are well supported by gentle French oak and ripe silken tannins. A lovely savoury line finishes the show.
