Penley Estate Mythology is a premium wine produced by the Penley Estate winery located in Coonawarra, a region in South Australia known for its terra rossa soil and cool climate. The wine is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, sourced from select vineyard sites within the region.
The grapes are carefully selected and handpicked, then fermented in small open-top fermenters. The wine is aged in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels for 18 months before being bottled and further aged in the cellar.
The Penley Estate Mythology wine has a deep ruby color and aromas of blackcurrant, cassis, and tobacco. On the palate, it is full-bodied and rich, with flavors of dark fruit, spice, and chocolate. The tannins are firm and well-structured, with a long, persistent finish.
This wine has received critical acclaim and has won numerous awards, including the Gold Medal at the 2017 Decanter World Wine Awards and the Gold Medal at the 2018 Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. It is considered one of Penley Estate's flagship wines and is a popular choice among wine enthusiasts and collectors.
