Penna Lane’s managing director, Peter Treloar, has a connection with the Clare wine region that began five generations ago. In 1865 Peter’s ancestor, Francis Treloar, acquired land in Watervale and planted the first vines in the area which became known as Springvale. The vineyard is recognised as one of the best in the Clare Valley. Based on the philosophy that good wine is made in the vineyard, great care was taken with the original plantings and this level of vineyard rigour continues today.
Splendidly composed and fabulously expressed, the bouquet shows lime cordial, Gala apple, lemon pith and subtle floral aromas, followed by an impressively concentrated palate delivering excellent fruit purity together with fine texture and brilliantly pitched acidity.
