The Wine

Why start with a Barossa Shiraz?

For Carol and Nick Riebke, there was only wine they could embark on this journey with. The Barossa’s very own signature style, Shiraz.

The fruit was sourced from a single vineyard on their family property in the Northern Barossa region of Ebenezer.

Shiraz grown in this region gives a style of elegance and complex fruit characters which can be enhanced by careful winemaking.

From the first vintage in 2017 the wine range has increased and they look forward to sharing their wines with you.

 

Like a Lost Penny unique and rare, so are our wines.

2018 Lost Penny 1891 Penny Shiraz

The name Lost Penny Wines was born after finding the first coin in the vineyard. The penny had spent many years on the dirt – a 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.

Alcohol | 15.5 % vol

Barrel Maturation | matured in 100% New French oak barrel for 18 months.

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 very young holding fresh acidity and with careful cellaring will assist the wine to develop and further evolve. The 2018 Lost Penny Almond Row Shiraz has an overall sweet spiced nose and palate with an elegant structure built around mouth filling rich berry characters.

2018 Lost Penny Almond Row Shiraz

Almond Row has come to form from the one little row of remaining almond trees that grew next to this block of Shiraz. When Nick was a child, he would pick the almonds and crack open the shells so he could sell the kernels for his pocket money. But as time went on the trees where no longer required. Today you can still see the odd almond shells next to this block of shiraz.
