Overview

Penley Estate was established by the Tolley family in Coonawarra in 1988. The Phoenix name recognises the first winemaking company purchased by Douglas Austral Tolley, in 1888. This company began in 1858, and was known as “The Phoenix Winemaking and Distilling Company”, in Stepney, South Australia.

Penley’s Phoenix is an excellent example of the classic Coonawarra cabernet big cassis characteristics with hints of that classic Coonawarra earthiness.

Expert Reviews

Bright, youthful hue; an appealing medium-bodied palate brings cassis, spice and cedary French oak onto centre stage, tannins in the wings. A good commercial cabernet from the right region. James Halliday, Rating 92, 27th July 2014
