Overview

This classic Australian red wine captures and enhances the distinctive characters of Coonawarra. These characters are highlighted by berry tones with a great length and depth of flavour. The complex characters of this wine show intensity and layered depth. To achieve this style it is important to have harmony between fruit intensity, oak tannin, grape tannin and acid. Objective for the Penley style is harmony and balance.

Expert Reviews

Made with header boards keeping the cap submerged, and finishing fermentation in barrels. The colour is good, and the flavours are in the cassis heartland of cabernet, but the tannins are in an argumentative mood, and need to get out of the bottle on the right side - I think they will in a few years. Rating 94 - Drink by 2025 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (OCT/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour has great depth, almost opaque with purple tints.

Aroma

The aroma is so typical of Coonawarra Cabernet. Complex, fresh with black currant leaf notes, touch of mulberry and blackberry fruits with hints of liquorice. Fragrant sweet cedar notes linger on the nose.

Palate

A very full bodied and masculine wine. Whilst still young, the palate is multi-layered and very generous and has a great balance of acid, fruit and tannin. The wine has a striking berry character with richness of fruit, strong vanillin and smokey influences from the fine grained French oak which add length and depth to the finish. A wine from a great vintage due to the ideal weather, average yields and trouble free harvest.
