Penley has four separate blocks of Shiraz and as each was managed and assessed each vintage with the view to improve Hyland it became clear that the Cottage block short rows were more consistent in quality. The grapes were smaller berried, tougher skinned and had more flavour than had been seen before. It was the 2000 vintage with its low cropping levels and cooler growing season that the first Special Select Shiraz was produced. A wine that will age for 10 to 12 years depending on preference.

Winery Tasting Notes


Inky with a great depth of colour and a purple hue.


The nose is strongly fruit driven showing concentrated blackberry, mulberry and cassis characteristics. The aroma has a subtle smokey oak character and a touch of vanillin enhanced during its barrel fermentation.


There is a fine balance of fruit, oak and richness. The palate is opulent and concentrated. The wine shows elegancy but with great depth of fruit, tightly structured acid and fine silky tannins. Grape and oak tannins are evident and add depth but they do not dominate the wine. Complexity of character, rich berry with firm dry tannins and smokey / cedary flavours linger on the finish and persist in the aftertaste. A great example of high quality Coonawarra Shiraz.
