Winemaker Notes

The Hyland unicorn was chosen for the Shiraz label due to its beauty and strength. The 2006 Hyland Shiraz is an elegant, medium-bodied wine with lifted aromas of ripe berry and spice integrated with savory, smoky notes. The middle palate is loaded with silky oak tannin to balance the rich fruit flavors. The finish is long and juicy with just a hint of oak. The Hyland Shiraz is best enjoyed over the next 1-5 years.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Shiraz Hyland offers up aromas of pepper, blueberry, and plum. This is followed by a medium- bodied, stylish wine with meaty flavors, good grip and depth, and a lengthy finish. Drink it over the next four years.

Penley Estate has turned out four exceptional values in the 2006 vintage.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Deep ruby. Red- and blackcurrant aromas are complicated by cigar box and floral qualities. At once sweet and spicy, with suave red and dark berry flavors, silky tannins and good mineral lift. Nicely balanced shiraz with excellent purity and finishing vivacity.

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
