    Winemaker's Notes:

    Opaque in color with some purple tints. The Shiraz grape gives the wine ripe, sweet berry and black cherry notes with a touch of pepper spice to the bouquet, whilst the Cabernet gives it depth of color, rich blackberry fruits and soft tannins. The major accent is on complexity and finesse which will develop wonderful secondary characters over the next 5-7 years. Complexity is a combination of the two differing varieties, a range of different French and American oak used and the winemaking techniques employed during harvest. This wine has fragrant ripe berries and some chocolate and savory smokey elements. The palate has a young but fine tannin structure that will evolve with age and is infused with layers of sweet soft fragrant berry fruits which provide great balance.

    80 % Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon

    Critical Acclaim:

    Penley Estate’s 2008 Condor Shiraz Cabernet displays a medium-deep garnet-purple color with intensely minty/eucalyptus notes over blackberry conserve and creme de cassis with just a suggestion of chocolate dust. Very crisp and concentrated in the mouth, the full bodied palate has a medium level of grainy tannins and plenty of juicy fruit that lingers through the long finish. Drink it now to 2016+. Only 800 cases were made.
