On the southern boundary of Coonawarra is the old Penola cricket ground, which first saw a ball bowled in anger and the flashing cover drives of the local champions in 1950. Sadly, the ground closed in 1996. Soon after Jim Barry purchased the 30 acre property and planted a Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard. The original pavilion and pitch have been retained, thus preserving an important piece of Coonawarra sporting history.
The Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for 12 months in seasoned French and American oak. Purple-coloured, it offers up aromas of cedar, tobacco, and black currants. Ripe and easy-going on the palate, it has excellent depth of flavor, good concentration, and a fruit-filled finish. It will evolve for 2-3 years but can be enjoyed now.
