Penola Cabernet Sauvignon | Coonawarra
Picking occurred in the middle of April following a text book 2018 vintage which resulted in fruit with strong colours and flavours. Majority of the blend remained on skins for 10 – 12 days but a small portion was treated to an extended maceration of 32 days to ensure tannin and colour extraction to support long – term cellaring. Following fermentation the blend was barreled down to 35% new French Barriques and Hogshead barrels for 18 months maturation.

5 stars - John Lewis - Newcastle Herald – 03/10/2020
The wine has 14.5 percent alcohol and is purple-tinted crimson in the glass. The nose features raspberry and herb aromas and the front palate vibrant blackberry flavour. Satsuma plum, spearmint, spice and savoury oak characters show on the middle palate and dusty tannins come through at the finish. Get it on heskethwinecompany.com.au and bottle shops and enjoy it with boeuf bourguignon. It will drink well over the next nine years.
