Ok, I know Coonawarra is all about amazing Cabernets, but Penley has a standout Pinot Noir rose'. Its to die for. My wife loves it. Just almost impossible to find in Melbourne!

Our visit to Penley Estate was a great experience, the kind you love to tell your friends about. The wines are magnificent, the service was excellent and the venue, and staff rounded off a memorable tasting and tales to tell others.

The cellar door has a nice decor. Wines are good, but we lacked a bit of information about the wines.

Tucked away at tge far end from Penola its a very understated vineyard - try Gryphon its smashing. Tgey release some clean skons from time to time - great value - same wines without the fancy label. Worth a punt.
