Poised, silky Cab Merlot from superb Coonawarra, renowned for Bordeaux style reds. It's from Penley Estate, which celebrates 200 years of heritage on each side of the family. At a fraction of the price of their flagship red, it's one to snap up fast.
"Impressive Bordeaux blend from prized Coonawarra, made the old school way for excellence"
Dan Parrott Buyer for Australia
Coonawarra is “Australia’s finest red wine region” (The Times). It’s blessed with red clay soils over limestone that lend Cabernets immense concentration and poise. This is an exciting new release from Penley Estate, a name that dates back to 1945. That was when a little red sports car driven by Reginald Lester Tolley rolled up at a function. Both the car and man behind the wheel impressed Judith Anne Penfold. Romance followed, then marriage, cementing two great winemaking dynasties with 400 years of heritage between them. The Penley name was born. It became a wine estate in 1988, when the next generation bought land in Coonawarra, and a winery was added in 1995. From their Casablanca vineyard, this is a rich, impeccably balanced red.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
