Australia's Leading Cabernet Producer: 2019 Penley Estate Tolmer Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra Australia

In Australia, Coonawarra’s cool climate plus the terra rossa (red soil) over limestone soils create ideal conditions for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Since it’s the country’s best region for the grape, it makes sense that Australia’s leading Cabernet producer—Penley Estate—chose to make its home there. An undertaking between family members of the pioneering Penfolds and Tolley estates, Penley produces terroir-driven wines with a character that’s distinctively Coonawarra.

Winemaker Kate Goodman is one of Australia’s leading contemporary winemakers. Australian Women in Wine named her Winemaker of the Year in 2018. Today’s wine deal, Penley’s 2019 Tolmer Cabernet Sauvignon is proof positive Kate deserves that title. We’re flipping over this modern expression of Coonawarra Cab with its aromas of intense black fruits and savory herbs, plus loads of juicy fruits with polished and velvety tannins.  

This Australian Cab is ready to drink now. Tolmer is the bottle of red you’ll be thanking yourself for buying the next time you fire up the grill to cook up juicy steaks or burgers.
