Expert Reviews

92 Points - James SucklingPretty and aromatic with dried-rose, spearmint and currant aromas and flavors. Medium body, soft and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now. Screw cap.
91 Points - Wine SpectatorFirm, with concentrated, savory details of loam and toasted herbs adding terrific bass notes to the dense and muscular body of cassis, wild blackberry and plum flavors. Black tea, pepper and spice details linger on the finish.

How's it taste?

A complex bouquet layered with a core of dark fruits. Plum, blackberry and anise with a dusting of dark chocolate. The palate is intense and long, supported by generous savoury tannins that coat the mouth. A delicious contemporary Cabernet.

How was it made?

Barrel aged in French oak for 12 months (5% new oak, 95% old oak) followed by 6 months stainless steel. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Coonawarra GI.

Who made it?

In 1988 Kym, Ang and Bec Tolley joined forces to buy a block of land in Coonawarra and Penley Estate was underway, the amalgamation of a 5th generation wine family Penfold and Tolley. In 2015 Ang and Bec took full ownership of the company. They have made a number of changes, including general manager Michael Armstrong and, even more importantly, appointed Kate Goodman as winemaker. Behind the scenes Ang's husband David Paxton, one of Australia's foremost viticulturists, has been working as a consultant, with improvements in vineyard performance already evident. James Halliday
