Penley Estate 2016 Hyland Shiraz (Coonawarra)

Editors' Choice

In her third vintage on the job, winemaker Kate Goodman's cool-climate roots and lighter touch shine on this wine. It leads with a fragrant nose of strawberry and raspberry preserves, mocha, dried flowers, anise and other wild, sweet-smelling herbs and some vanillin oak notes. For all those sweet-smelling aromas, the palate is taut and focused, even lean. Tannins are chalky and drying right to the finish, but juicy berries keep things bright. It's a lovely medium-bodied style for tannin lovers that could cellar through 2027. Christina Pickard
