Winemaking

The internationally acclaimed, award winning estate wines of Penny’s Hill guarantee luscious flavour, elegance, balance and palate satisfaction.

Red grapes are from two distinctly different McLaren Vale sub-regions resulting in two different wine styles.

Close proximity to the winery aids ultimate quality while small batch winemaking enables us to isolate parcels to keep separate throughout the winemaking process, allowing further options for final selection and blending.

Every step of the way, our wines are gently guided to an ultimate balance of texture, complexity and interest.

Red wine fermentation is finished in barrel. Only the finest oaks are used; predominantly French from a number of different coopers, supplemented by the best, well-seasoned American barrels.

Quality driven ‘estates of mates’ vineyards located in the nearby Adelaide Hills allows the winemaker to craft fresh, vibrant, balanced whites of aromatic intensity and regional expression.
