2018 Lost Penny
1891 Penny


Thie idea of Lost Penny came to us when we found an old coin in the vineyard. After many years being in the dirt, the first coin we found was an 1891 Penny. It amazes us how we could still read the date on the coin after so many years hiding underground. It was only fitting that we would name this very special wine in honour of the year in which the first coin helped in shaping our new adventure.

Vintage Notes

The Growing season started well, with winter 2017 rainfall around 10% higher than the average. However, both Spring and Summer brought below average rainfall. With the drier soils and warmer on average temperatures for October and November this made for quick vine canopy growth and flowering. January and February remained dry and warm which slowed ripening. Through to March and April temperatures remained average without extremes which gave for ideal ripening conditions to finish off the vintage.

Winemaker Notes

Colour: Dark deep red with a garnet core
Nose: Sweet spiced notes of dark red fruits, cherries
Palate: 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. The 2018 Lost Penny 1891 Penny Shiraz has an overall full intense nose and palate with an elegant rich structure built around mouth-filling berry characters.
