Penna Lane Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Don't tell anyone but we think that Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon can be more interesting than Clare Valley Shiraz. The secret is simply all about structure, with Clare Cabernet simply better built and less sweet and rich than the Shiraz. This is a perfect case in point, a choc minty Cabernet with no shortage of power and intensity if just a little rugged. Serious red wine it is indeed.

Winemaker's Notes

This estate grown cabernet sauvignon is a wonderful example of this premium variety grown in Australia’s Clare Valley. The wine is elegant with dark fruit nuances topped with classic varietal lift typical of cabernet.

Spice tones have been developed. through careful use of barrel maturation while grained tannins provide weight and structure. The result is a wine that is balanced and full of flavour.
