Rich, ripe cabernet sauvignon is carefully selected at harvest from the best Pentley Estate vineyards and picked at its optimum. Small batches are hand worked in open fermenters and then barrel fermented and aged in oak for 2 years. The resultant wine is a powerful concentration of intense cabernet fruit and tannins, with balanced smoky oak. 

Soil-inflected aromas of plum, chocolate, cedar, smoke and earth. Supple and creamy in the mouth, with rich, ripe plum and chocolate flavours leavened by liquorice, herbs and mint. Offers a restrained sweetness and subtle depth. Finishes long and sweet, with excellent breadth.

Region

Situated in the Limestone Coast zine of South Australia, the Coonawarra wine region is synonymous with Cabernet Sauvignon; so much so that success with other grape varieties is often overlooked. It is relatively new to wine-making - from 1890 to 1945 most of the wine was distilled into brandy - but today the famous terra rossa (or red soils) on which all the early vineyards were planted produce predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon wines, full of plum and blackcurrant fruit.
