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.
如今，酒庄的规模已显着增长，并拥有一个由200英亩的葡萄藤环绕的最先进的酒庄。 它仍然保留在家庭中，拥有并经营着姐妹：代表第五代的Ang＆Bec Tolley。 与酿酒师凯特·古德曼（Kate Goodman）联手，他们着手振兴庄园并创造一种新风格的库纳瓦拉（Coonawarra）葡萄酒，其风味比该地区的某个时候更为柔和，优雅。 如今，Penley酒庄已重新成为库纳瓦拉最令人兴奋和进步的酒庄。
Penley are returning to a more traditional methods of viticulture, with much of the work such as pruning now being carried out by hand to allow for maximum precision. A specific irrigation and frost management programme has been put in place alongside a soil cultivation and moisture retention intiative to promote micobial life in the vineyards.
Following separate fermentations in tank, the wine is aged in French oak for 12 months, which 50% is new, then followed by 6 months in stainless steel.
Grape: 100% Shiraz
Tasting Note: Brooding dark fruits and earthy ferrous notes lifted with spice. This is a well structured and intensely flavoured Shiraz. Star anise, berry compote, leather and chocolate intertwine. The minerally tannins drive the palate which is long and supported by savoury french oak notes. Rich dark and dense.
Food Match: Ideal with pasta Amatriciana and roast beef in a pepper sauce.
Farming Practices: Vegan - Contains Sulfites
