Penley Estate Pinot Noir Coonawarra Sparkling 2008

External Review:

Kym Tolley is a premier Australian winemaker with an impeccable winemaking background. He is directly related to two of Australia's pioneer wine families - the Penfolds and the Tolleys. Kym started his career in the early seventies under the tutelage of Grange creator Max Schubert and in 1988 founded Penley Estates in Coonawarra, producing wines known for quality and finesse. This Pinot Noir is a testament to his skill as a winemaker. Coonawarra soil is ideal for Pinot Noir. Tolley shortens the length of time the skins macerate and brings out the lovely red berry aromas and flavors that make Pinot Noir so irresistible. New World Pinot of this quality at this price is very rare indeed. A thoroughly delicious wine. Don’t miss it.
