On the southern boundary of Coonawarra is the old Penola cricket ground, which retired in 1996. Soon after, Jim Barry purchased the 30-acre property and planted Cabernet Sauvignon.
The hidden geological treausre of porous limestone, under the rich Terra Rossa soil, creates the ideal cellar by storing water for later use.
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.
Appearance: In the glass this wine is a deep ruby red with a crimson hue.
On the nose: Classic Cabernet notes of berry compote and dark cherry combine with nuances of olive leaf and lifted red florals.
On the palate: The palate is lively with bright red berries and dark cherry fruit. The wine has an even pull through the palate with fine tannins and a moreish finish.
