Penley Estate Atlas Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Coonawarra South Australia
A Coonawarra Shiraz of elegance and finesse, Penley's vintages are regularly awarded with prestigious international trophies and accolades, outclassing some of the nation's icon wines. A splendid effort exhibiting generous varietal fruit and spiced pepper, perfumes of good French oak and plenty of flavour. Shiraz has taken well to Coonawarra, where the cooler growing conditions yield a slightly more supple, finer boned style than warmer climes. Balance is a key feature in all Penley wines, fruit, tannins and oak in complete harmomy.
A direct descendant of two great winemaking dynasties, the Penfolds and the Tolleys, Kym continues to employ the best of traditional and modern winemaking techniques. Kym trains his Coonawarra Shiraz blocks, to yield vibrant red wines with plenty of flavour, suited for early drinking while possessing the substance to age gracefully. The objective with Atlas is to create a youthful, rich and mellow wine of gentle tannins and supple oak, fashioned to articulate the excellence of Coonawarra Shiraz and offer plenty of flavour. Fruit is treated to an open vinification in traditional heading down fermenters and matured in a mix of seasoned and new French oak barrels for eighteen months.
Deep red colour with faint purple hue. Fresh black cherry and blueberries on the nose, nuances of vanilla and smoke, mocha and chocolates curl. The youthful palate exhibits tight structure with good natural acidity, fleshy with a diverse flavour profile of berries, black olive, spices and smokey oak. The young tannins are quite dry, will soften and become more opulent, offering enough softness to be enjoyed immediately upon release.

Penley Estate
Penley Estate is a medium sized winery and vineyard located in the Coonawarra, and is the chosen home of winemaker Kym Tolley

The mission of Penley Estate and Kym Tolley is to produce a selection of wines with an emphasis on quality of product as well as the skill, enthusiasm and artistry of the team of people involved in the wine making process. Kym has always had wine in his blood, he is a direct descendant of two of Australia's most famous winemaking families, the Penfolds and the Tolleys.

Penley Estate

Twenty five years is a long time to be in the same profession but ask Kym Tolley what he would do if he was not a winemaker and the answer is simple. "I've not been able to think of anything else I'd prefer to do," he said. "Winemaking satisfies all my creative urges along with my need for discipline. To me, it's simply fantastic to be able to make a life out of being creative."

Directly related to two of Australia's pioneer wine families, the Penfolds and the Tolleys, Kym continues to mix the best of traditional and modern winemaking methods at Penley Estate. Born in 1953, Kym Tolley was educated at St Peters' College Adelaide. He completed his diploma in wine production at Roseworthy College in 1977.

He remained with the company until 1988 when he left to establish Penley Estate. For Kym, Penley Estate is a dream come true. His vision was to develop a solid business which would allow perpetuity and future growth for his family, while providing the opportunity for him to continue to create interesting and quality wines.

Penley Estate

Father to Hannah, Lachlan and Madeline, Kym often quotes an historic quote of Australian wine writer James Busby who in 1830 said: "A man who could sit under the shade of his own vine with his wife and his children about him and the ripe clusters hanging within their reach in such a climate as this and not feel the highest enjoyment, is incapable of happiness"

Throughout the years that Penley Estate has been producing premium quality wines, the winery has enjoyed an extremely successful wine show and review record. Penley's Trophy record alone, if averaged out over the years averages out at approximately 4 per annum, an impressive feat.
