Adjacent to the Edwards Road boundary of the slightly elevated Penny's Hill Vineyard, sits a small block of premium Cabernet. Reflecting the outstanding terroir of this single site and skilful winemaking, this is a complex wine with structure and persistence.


Varietal

Cabernet Sauvignon -100%

Region

McLaren Vale 

Vineyard

From narrow-planted rows on a five acre plot, bordered by dense revegetated bush, Penny’s Hill Cabernet Sauvignon was planted in 1993. Hand-tended and low yielding, the vines on loamy top soil over a clay base, run north-south sloping down from the vineyard’s highest point. Fruit was picked on the 26th February.

Winemaking

Destemmed then crushed to an open fermenter, fruit was left on skins for 10 days until the desired colour, tannin and flavour profile was obtained. Post pressing, wine completed fermentation in barrel, approximately 30% new French oak and remaining 1-3 year old. After 16 months of maturation, the wine was barrel selected and blended to ensure a wine of balanced oak and varietal Cabernet Sauvignon characters was achieved. The wine was bottled in September 2016.

The Wine

A complex nose with varietal definition that offers black berry fruits and dark cherry intermingled with cedar and oak spice, leafy notes and subtle earthiness. The palate shows seamless style and substance with an abundance of generosity and varietal Cabernet Sauvignon flavour. The oak adds layers and supports the fruit whilst the fine long tannins provide structure and a length to charm.

Cellaring

Ready to drink, but will cellar for 6-10 years

Reviews

93 Points: James Halliday - Wine Companion 2018: "Hand tended, low-yielding vines on loamy topsoil over a clay base. 30% new French oak, 16 months maturation. Textbook McLaren Vale cabernet with every hair in place. Blackcurrant aromas (a hint of dried currant as well) with a milky chocolate overlay and dusty, cedary varietal character. Smoothly textured, but there's depth to the flavours and the tannin is spot on."
