Penley Estate is located in the heart of Australia’s greatest Cabernet wine region:
Coonawarra. Owner Kym Tolley, a direct descendant of the pioneering Penfold and
Tolley winemaking families, has over 25 years winemaking experience, including
tutelage under Grange creator Max Schubert. Continuing a family tradition that spans
five generations, Tolley established Penley in 1988 on Coonawarra’s famed terra rossa soils, with the aim of producing terroir-driven wines of true regional character. Penley is now regarded as one of the region’s leading producers.
The Phoenix name recognizes the first winemaking company purchased by Douglas Austral Tolley in 1888. This company began in 1858 as ‘The Phoenix Winemaking and Distilling Company’ in Stepney, South Australia. Douglas Austral Tolley’s great grandson, Kym Tolley, has continued the family legacy. The Phoenix bird symbolizes Penley Estate’s determination, energy, and quiet persistence towards winemaking excellence. The Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon expresses distinctive Coonawarra regionality and structure unique to the Penley Estate property.
