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.
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.
15.0 % v/v alcohol
Matured in French Oak barrels for 18 months, there are sweet spiced notes of dark red fruits and cherries on the nose. A fine and elegant structure with mouth filling intense black and red fruits. Rich earthy notes giving a long complex structure.
Overall this wine is still young and with careful cellaring, it has the capacity to develop further complex flavours as a special occasion wine.
