The 2019 vintage – extremely dry and warm across the Barossa Valley – brings the perennially vibrant Marananga shiraz into its own. Never shy, it exudes the fruits of the summer with blueberry, black fruits and cherry wrapped around an Italianesque ferrous earthiness. The latter is an important feature of each release, a reference to the ancient Marananga ironstone and quartzite that lie beneath the vines.

Rather than subtle and poised, expect the full Penfolds experience combining smart, classy oak matched with ripe Barossan fruit concentration, and an almost in your face, glorious attack of cinnamon and Middle Eastern spices. Complexity is what this wine is all about. Marananga 2019 is in great form, the full Barossan sun of the vintage allows it to be itself, dense and generous across the palate. It fairly glides on and on across the finish line. And it tastes even better the second day!
