2020 Lost Penny
The Four Coins blend is quite different and offers a lot of fun and interest. With Cabernet Sauvignon as the dominant player, this gives a great backbone to provide support and structure for the other varieties to impart their store fruit flavours. Enjoy!!
Sweet spices of vanilla pod mix with inky tones on this boldly-styled blend. Its presence on
the palate is noted by its warmth and intensity. It’s ripe, rich and packed with flavour, a
perfect antidote for cold weather.

Gabrielle Poy- The Real Review
2019 Vintage Reviews
Mid red purple in the glass, with aromas of deep dark plum and blackberry fruit, framed by baking spice, dark chocolate, northern Barossa earth, violets, licorice and cedary oak. Medium bodied in the mouth, with a wash of dark and black fruits, abundant spice and redfruit highlights. Fine, sandy tannin provides support.

David Brookes – Halliday Wine Companion
Deepish ruby colour with brick and purple traces. The bouquet has a planky-wood overtone, and is fairly rough and ready. There’s a touch of astringency: it might benefit from a bit more time in bottle.

Matured in French oak barrel for 18 months.
The growing season for the 2020 vintage started dry and continued that way. Much of the rainfall was below average for all the months. The 2019 calendar year was the driest on record for the Nuriootpa weather station. With the extreme weather conditions through November and into December saw below average bunch size and smaller than normal berry size. The flavours and colours and overall quality is exceptional.
Colour: Dark red with garnet hue.
Nose: Sweet spice, dark red fruit characters and a touch of leafiness.
Palate: A elegant structure with mouth filling red fruit characters. Touch of herbaceous and earthiness to give complexity.
Four coins is a unique blend of four grape varieties, which has become a hit with many. Cabernet Sauvignon to give it structure, Shiraz to add fruit fullness, Merlot for sweetness and Grenache just to just give it that little bit more. A fabulous food wine with great interest, we hope you enjoy something that’s just a little bit different.
