Overview

Mulberry and blackberry are dominant fruit flavours enhanced by a young tight palate with silky grape tannin and elegant complex cedar oak, so typical of the Penley Style. A very generous mid palate with a hint of liquorice and chocolate that lingers on the finish. A wine that is closer to full bodied with more grape and oak tannins but still maintains beautiful balance.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour is bright crimson with hints of dark purple due to its oak maturation and specific handling techniques.

Aroma

The fragrant aroma consists of violets, black currant leaf, ripe wild berry and integrated spice of the Cabernet grape. Complex and well integrated oak characters are evident on the bouquet.

Palate

Wine Background

The Phoenix name recognises the first winemaking company purchased by Douglas Austral Tolley , purchased in 1888. This company began in 1858, as “The Phoenix Winemaking and Distilling Company”, in Stepney, South Australia. In 1888 this was changed to “Tolley Scott Tolley” (T.S.T.) and remained with the family till 1960. D.A Tolley’s great grandson, Kym Tolley, has continued the unbroken family winemaking tradition, establishing Penley Estate in 1988.
