Region: Coonawarra, Australia
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Item no. 44443
The colour is bright crimson with hints of amber due to its oak maturation and specific handling techniques. The aroma is fresh and lively with fruit dominant and intensity typical of the 1999 Coonawarra vintage. Distinct blackberry/blackcurrant (Cassis) flavours with hints of mint, characteristic of a good Coonawarra cabernet Sauvignon. The flavour is young and fruity with a hint of soft grape and oak tannin, so typical of the Penley Style, though reflecting a finesse that is evident in all our 1999 wines. 1999 is a rich style with medium to full weight, reminiscent of our 1991 Cabernets. A wine that is full bodied but soft and balanced.
