Overview

On the southern boundary of Coonawarra is the old Penola cricket ground, which first saw a ball bowled in anger and the flashing cover drives of the local champions in 1950. Sadly, the ground closed in 1996. Soon after Jim Barry purchased the 30 acre property and planted a Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard.

The original pavilion and pitch have been retained, thus preserving an important piece of Coonawarra sporting history. Fruit from this vineyard, along with selected parcels of fruit from our family owned Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Clare Valley have been blended to produce a wine that is rich, soft and approachable.

Winery Tasting Notes

This wine is a deep ruby red with a crimson hue. Classic Cabernet notes of berry compote and dark cherry combine with nuances of olive leaf and lifted red florals. The palate is lively with bright red berries and dark cherry fruit. The wine has an even pull through the palate with fine tannins and a moreish finish.
