Penley Estate Hyland Coonawarra Shiraz 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The objective is to create a youthful, rich and mellow wine. Designed to drink now. A wine of varietal fruits but only the hint of American oak. Oak will add complexity to the flavours and enhance the fruit. This wine must show area characteristics, varietal fruit and have plenty of flavour. Balance is a key feature in all Penley Wines, ensuring successful bottle maturation. This wine shows dominance of fruit with hints of smoky oak and grape tannin. A wine made to enjoy while the young distinct but elegant Coonawarra Shiraz characters are evident. Characters of ripe berry and hints of black peppers.
