Penley Estate Atlas Coonawarra Shiraz 2016
Mighty flavours from this sumptuous Coonawarra Shiraz ... and 92 points!
The ‘Penley Estate’ name was created in 1945 when the members of two winemaking families (Penfolds & Tolley) married. Their children, Kym, Ang and Bec Tolley turned the name into a reality in 1988, establishing a vineyard and winery that continues to produce “a succession of rich, complex wines” (Halliday).
"Penley Estate has lifted its game of late and this is a prime example. Happy days. It's chunky with flavour, in a good way. High toast, caramel, roasted plums and a punchy, briary sweetness to the finish. It feels as though it's bursting to impress, and at the price that's rarely a bad thing...92pts" (Halliday)
