"Beautifully fragrant, fresh and lively. This is a soft expression of Cabernet Sauvignon. Black cherries, plum, licorice and a layer of dried herbs fill the nose with aromas. The taste is finely structured and intense in taste. The texture of the tannins envelops a core of purple fruit and dark chocolate. Wrap yourself in an Arne Jacobsen "Egg" chair. All curves, flowing, soft and sexy. A cocoon of comfort and privacy. The perfect place to reflect over a glass of Project 'E' Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon." - Kate Goodman (winemaker)
The Project wines are a big part of Penley Estate's wine ideology. They are an opportunity to push boundaries and create something new. Penley Estate is the first winery in Coonawarra to use a concrete egg! The end result is otherworldly. The wine: a cabernet sauvignon fermented in a concrete egg, to be in contact with the skin for as long as possible. 201 days to be exact. The concept of a concrete egg dates back to the 1900s and was inspired by the use of Roman amphora in the late 2nd century BC. The old technology, in a new format.
On April 25, 2019, whole berries went into the egg. The fermentation process provides heat that creates a flow, encouraging the wine to move. The egg shape (without corners) is a huge bonus to this process and allows the wine to move more freely than in a barrel or tank. This also means a lot less intervention from the winemakers. The wine really takes on a life of its own and does not require regular punch-overs and toppings. The egg's thick stone walls provide insulation, temperature control and help shape the fruit. The very extensive maceration of 201 days helped to soften and layer the tannins while giving a wonderful texture to the wine.
The Label: Bruna Vettori is an artist from Brazil. She is an economist with a creative soul. The design of the label is an expression of satisfaction. There is life in all of us, just as there is life in this wine. The minimalist design brought together only by black ink tells a story of joy through wine. The artwork is also incorporated into the cork.
