The inspiration for Lost Penny came when an 1891 coin was discovered in the vineyard. Even after many years of being in the dirt, Carol & Nick Riebke were amazed how well preserved it was after so many years hiding underground. It was only fitting that this special wine is named in honour of the year in which the first coin helped shape the future of Lost Penny Wines.
Lost Penny 2018 - 1891 Penny Shiraz:
From the vineyard where lost pennies can be found from years gone by… this wine is like a unique treasure and will continue to evolve in the years ahead.
Fruit was sourced from the Reibke family vineyard in the Northern Barossa region of Ebenezer, giving a style of elegance, complex black fruit characters and sweet spice from the French oak barrel.
