Penley Estate was born from the marriage of two of South Australia's pioneering wine families, the Penfolds and the Tolleys. Established in the mid 1980s from a few hectares of vines in the famous Coonawarra region, the estate shot to prominence in 1989 when Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon won Gold at the prestigious Adelaide Wine Show. Today, the estate has grown significantly to over 80 hectares of vines and a state of the art winery, run by 5th generation family members, sisters Ang & Bec Tolley. With winemaker Kate Goodman, they have revitalised the estate and created a new style of Coonawarra wines: softer and more elegant than Coonawarra sometimes produces.
The fruit is grown in a vineyard in the Adelaide hills sub-region of Kuitpo. Adelaide hills is home to some of Australia’s best Chardonnay and this cool site is perfect for producing a flavoursome and restrained style. Fermented in French oak, 20 % new the balanced seasoned, with a combination of both natural fermentation ( 25 % ) and inoculated yeast. The palate is bright and stylish with layers of flavour, White nectarine and grapefruit wrapped in juicy acidity with a touch of smoke from the natural fermentation.
