Penley Estate Helios Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
The Penley Estate Helios from the Coonawarra is complex and powerful yet restrained.
The Penley Estate Helios from the Coonawarra is complex and powerful yet restrained. On the palate, experience a succulent dark fruit, savory notes and long, savory textural tannins. On the nose experience, cassis, mulberry and liquorice with French oak. This is a wine of incredible depth, complexity, and finesse. Enjoy now or cellar until 2044.
“A lovely vintage, excellent fruit, wild fermentation, some extended maceration but time not specified, aged 18 months in French barrels, 40% new. Despite the hefty 1.6kg bottle, this wine is anything but weighty. An excellent dark garnet hue, it's resplendent with pure cabernet aromas and flavours. A latent power and beauty at the same time, with exceptional tannins, long and finely chiselled.”
