2008 Penley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Phoenix

Winemaker's Notes

Open Fermentation/ Heading Down Tanks. The balance is a key feature in all Penley wines. This will ensure the wines will mature successfully in the bottle. This wine shows dominance of spicy cabernet fruit, a dense ripeness with hints of smoky oak and grape tannin. A wine made to enjoy while the young, ripe but elegant, distinct Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon characters are evident. Barrel fermentation in French oak provided a balanced integration of oak and fruit.
