The Condor highlights the great Coonawarra color created during its cool and slow ripening phase. The wine is best described as medium to full bodied, rich ripe flavors and a soft tannic finish are all key elements to all Penley wines. All of the fruit, which is grown on the Estate, are subject to a slow and steady ripening period resulting in a ripe varietal flavor and subtle oak flavors.
Blend: 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Shiraz
"Bright ruby-red. Ripe cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by notes of mocha and woodsmoke. Lush and velvety on the palate, offering sweet cassis and cherry-vanilla
flavors and a hint of black pepper. Closes with very good energy and length, leaving sappy dark berry compote notes behind."
International Wine Cellar
"Bright color, with fresh red and black fruits, black olive and a gentle lift of thyme; the palate is medium-bodied, fleshy and succulent, with a long, juicy and approachable conclusion;
enjoy in the full flush of youth."
