On the southern boundary of Coonawarra is the old Penola cricket ground, which first saw a ball bowled in anger and the flashing cover drives of the local champions in 1950. Sadly, the ground closed in 1996. Soon after Jim Barry purchased the 30 acre property and planted a Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard.
The original pavilion and pitch have been retained, thus preserving an important piece of Coonawarra sporting history. Fruit from this vineyard, along with selected parcels of fruit from our family owned Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Clare Valley have been blended to produce a wine that is rich, soft and approachable.
This wine shows a bright garnet red with a violet hue in the glass.
The nose opens with lifted notes of blackcurrant and blackberry aromatics, with subtle savoury notes of garden herbs, turned earth and spice.
The palate displays generous red and blackcurrant fruit gently shaped by soft, silky tannin. Hints of liquorice, tobacco and savoury oak add further character to a wine packed with bright fruit flavours. A moreish wine which can be enjoyed now or will reward cellaring for 5 years.
