Founded in 1844 by a young English doctor, Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold, vine cuttings from the south of France were planted around the site of the modest stone cottage he built with his wife Mary at Magill, on the outskirts of Adelaide.
Very pale straw with lime green hues. Instant white peach stone fruit flavors abound ensued by a lovely array of florals ?orange blossom and jasmine. Fresh and pure with a light creaminess arising from time spent on yeast lees in French oak. Lovely fruit and oak integration. Stone fruits persist alongside fresh citrus and green apple and just a splashing of honey suckle. Fine and pure with a subtle and soft oak influence finishing with a long, mineral acid structure that gives great length of flavor.
