Winemaker Notes

The colour is bright crimson with hints of amber due to its oak maturation and specific haandling techniques. The aroma is fresh and lively with fruit dominate but quite intense due to the 1998 vintage conditions. Distinct blackberry/blackcurrant (Cassis) with hints of mint, all characteristics of a good Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. The flavour is round, fruity but with a hint of soft grape and oak tannin, so typical of the Penley Style though reflecting an intensity that is 1998. 1998 is a rich style with full weight. A wine which is full bodied but soft and balanced, approachable with distinct regional characteristics.

Alcohol: 14% by volume

Penley Estate, Coonawarra, Limestone Coast, Australia
1998 Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon
Established in 1988, by Kym Tolley, a direct descendant of the famous Penfold and Tolley winemaking families – the name Penley is an amalgam of the first three and last three letters from each title.

Tolley has over 25 years of winemaking experience, including being involved in the making of many vintages of the famous Penfolds Grange. The estate is located in the heart of Coonawarra, with the vines planted in the famed "terra rossa" soils – bright red top-soils overlaying soft free-draining limestone.

Critically acclaimed as one of Coonawarra's leading estates, and voted as one of the International Wineries of the Year 2001 by Wine & Spirits Magazine, while the Reserve Cabernet voted best wine of Coonawarra 2001, as judged by winemaking peers and critics.

The Penley Estate signature style comprises distinct, precise, terrior driven wines – not overly oaked or excessively alcoholic. They display ripe clean fruit with true regional character – the senior wines will age for many years.
