Penley Estate Wild Ferment Shiraz 2016


Penley Estate have been cranking the interest factor high of late. Tick that box here once more. A super slurpable Shiraz from the hands of Kate Goodman. There are so many exciting wines coming out of Coonawarra at the moment, add this to that growing list.

A quick whiff and those wild ferment characteristics certainly leap to the fore. Red and black berries, some chocolate plus a touch of rhubarb have me skipping about. Damn its inviting. Vibrant and energetic, the mouth is coated generously by fruit. Super fine spices skirt the frame. Fine tannins, almost powdery, cap off a delicious Shiraz. A great find.

Drink now to five years.
