Food Pairings for Penley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra Phoenix
W I N E M A K E R : Kym Tolley R E G I O N : Coonawarra, South Australia V A R I E T A L S : Cabernet Sauvignon M A T U R A T I O N : A portion was barrel fermented, followed by 18 months maturation in 25% new French oak A N A L Y S I S : 15% alc/vol | 6.2 g/L TA | 3.48 pH V I N T A G E N O T E S : A dry and cold winter was followed by severe frosts during spring and early summer. These frosts occurred throughout the region, in fact much of southeastern Australia was affected, resulting in significantly reduced yields. Summer was very dry with warm to hot days and mild to cool nights, though significant rainfall in January provided relief and enough moisture to carry the vines through to harvest without undue stress. These conditionas combined to produce below average yields of extremely high quality. T A S T I N G N O T E S : The Phoenix name recognizes the first winemaking company purchased by Douglas Austral Tolley in South Australia in 1888, the ‘The Phoenix Winemaking and Distilling Company’. The 2007 Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon offers fragrant notes of ripe wild berries and integrated spice with smoky oak. The focused, young palate displays strong varietal character of ripe blackberry and cassis, while silky grape tannin and elegant cedar oak contribute to this wine’s approachability at a young age. Impeccable balance, typical Cabernet structure and bright acidity will see this wine age gracefully for many years to come.
