Dark and vibrant purple in colour. On the nose you will find dark berries and black fruits, blackberry, mulberry, plum and a touch of liquorice. Subtle floral notes intertwine with the dark core of fruit. Subtle hints of smoky oak add complexity and savoury notes. This is a complete and harmonious wine with great persistence of flavour. Bright and delicious, speaking of contemporary Coonawarra Cabernet.
The name Penley Estate comes from the amalgamation of two pioneering South Australian wine families, the Penfold’s and Tolley’s, and born of a dream of three siblings in 1988. Today the estate is owned by sisters Ang and Bec Tolley, and like their ancestors they are strong, resilient and determined women. Their history is a rich mix of endeavour, passion and vision with a touch of scandal and madness thrown in for good measure.
