And a very warm welcome back to the Fo’ with one of our most popular shiraz deals from one of our favourite producer’s; none other than Penley Estate. Championing our nations’ women in wine and punching out above par quality wines every single vintage. Speaking of vintage, 2018 churned out a lower yield, meaning less wine so jump on this quick sticks. Expect classic Coonawarra characteristics of a medium body, darkened berry and forest fruits, inky in the glass and spine straightening structure with fine tannins providing a cedary and herbaceous finish. Penley Estate have worked hard to bring Coonawarra’s style to the modern drinker, without losing its history or connection to place. Now officially vegan as well. Reason enough to drink to that!

Coonawarra is renowned for its cabernet. To write off other varieties, though, would be simplistic. Some of the best wine from the region is shiraz, which is frequently overlooked in the search for the perfect cab sav. It's riesling is a surprise dark horse, too. Not to belittle Coonawarra cab either, but it's funny how often we get caught insisting that one variety is the best expression of a specific place, grown in a variable environment with so many factors at play. All we're saying is: don't miss the great wines that aren't the usual suspects. Coonawarra has quite a few amazing hands other than their trump card.
