Cabernet 48%, Merlot 34% and Cabernet Franc 18%
A rack of lamb crusted with parmesan and anchovy crumbs.
Barrel ferment 100%, New French oak, 21 months
Deep crimson red in colour.
A tightly interwoven aroma of floral violets, plums and herb garden spices. Very complex with the subtle use of oak allowing the bouquet to radiate out of the glass.
The palate is medium bodied and quite voluptuous in the mouth. The tannins are quite soft and opulent but linger on the finish and persist. A very attractive wine and a true reflection of balance, elegance and power.
The Chertsey name was born out of the Tolley family; it is the village in which the Tolley family lived in the United Kingdom. In Australia it is the name of the house in which Kym's Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather lived in Adelaide. This wine honours the families winemaking heritage. The distinct butterfly logo used on the label represents the gates that stood at the front of the Chertsey house. The gates were made as a present to Kym Tolley's Grandmother by his Grandfather for her Birthday. This gift of love was made by an Adelaide Blacksmith but was designed by family still living in Scotland. Balance is a key feature in all Penley wines. This ensures the wine will mature successfully in the bottle. Coupling Australia's rich flavours, it can be drunk whenever the mood dictates. Inherent in the Penley style is soft balance but this should not detract from ageing potential. The wine is made with bottle age in mind. Intense tannin, acid and flavour components are elements required. It is a strong held belief that these components need to be in balance, not just in place, for a wine to mature in bottle. The Chertsey is made from 100% estate grown fruit and is lightly filtered, which gives the wine greater complexity.
