Penley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra, 2017
Coonawarra is synonymous with Cabernet Sauvignon. Its famous Terrarossa soils are found in a limited area close to the town of Penola. They lie on a limestone ridge which is impenetrable to vines’ roots. Located approximately 60 kilometres from the coast, Coonawarra has a cooler maritime climate than most Australian wine regions and less than 600 mm of rain per annum. Cloud cover during the summer also helps to reduce daytime temperatures, allowing Cabernet Sauvignon to fully express itself. Penley Estate Grown 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is concentrated and supple with distinctive cherry menthol flavours. A cool growing season in 2017 led to a late harvest starting in late March and running through to early May. The wine was matured in French oak for 12 months with 5% new barrels.
