Penley Estate Condor Shiraz Cabernet 2009
It may be the Penley second label, but it marks a return to top form for Penley Estate. The bright red-purple colour is a good start to a 52%/48% blend of estate-grown fruit, underwriting a substantial medium- to full- bodied palate, with blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, plentiful tannins and 36% new oak, all contributing to the length and balance of a wine with a minimum 7-year future.
Blended of 52% Shiraz and 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2009 Condor Shiraz Cabernet presents a deep garnet-purple color and aromas of mint, cassis, warm blackberries and spice box over hints of chocolate and licorice. Full bodied, richly fruited and very minty in the mouth, it has a medium to firm level of finely grained tannins, crisp acid and a long finish.
