For The Cellar

Penley Estate Chertsey Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc, Coonawarra 2010 $50

Year in, year out, this is one of Penley’s best wines. It’s a rich, ripe, full-bodied red with smoky-bacon and dark-fruit aromas and a hint of tapenade. There’s sweetly ripe berry fruit flavour galore, with abundant tannin grip adding firmness. It will age superbly. Best 2015-2030 14.5 per cent alcohol. 93/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: Pyengana cheddar

Stockist: Vintage Blue
