A modern twist on an Australian classic, this delicious sparkling Shiraz is aged in old oak for four months to gather complexity and soften. Incredibly fragrant and bright fruited on the nose. A spiced bouquet of black cherry, plum and raspberry compote. A luscious, ripe, modern style of sparkling Shiraz with a vibrant mousse, and a whisper of spicy tannins.
Penley Estate was born from the marriage of two families, the Penfolds and the Tolleys, two of the great pioneering South Australian wine dynasties. Established in the mid 1980s from a few acres on vines planted in Coonawarra, the estate shot to prominence in 1989 when the Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon won Gold at the prestigious Adelaide Wine Show.
Today, the estate has grown significantly in size and includes a state of the art winery surrounded by 200 acres of vines. It remains in the family, being owned and run sisters: Ang & Bec Tolley who represent the 5th generation. In tandem with winemaker Kate Goodman they have set about revitalising the estate and creating a new style of Coonawarra wines , with a softer, more elegant touch than is sometime associated with the region. Today Penley estate has reestablished itself as the most exciting and progressive winery in Coonawarra.
