Winemaker's Notes

Penleys flagship wine. This classic Australian red wine captures and enhances the rich, sweet characters of Coonawarra fruit. The colour is bright with deep crimson and some amber tints. The aroma has a striking berry character with richness of fruit due to the late but cool and dry harvest this is added together with strong smoky oak tones, which highlight the intense nature of Penley style. The desired level of sugar and flavour was reached. The palate with its rich sweet berry flavours and strong oak and grape tannins tend to balance and integrate this years strong flavours. A complex wine shows a deeper and richer palate than previous years, this again reflects the vintage conditions. Best defined as a full bodied style.
