Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet
Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet Colour
Energetic red fruits wrapped around a steely spine.
Aromatics belie the wines regional composition. Ripeness has been swapped for pink peppercorn, white plum and the complexities of fresh Thai mint … more reminiscent of cool climate pockets around the world. Red mulberry and white chocolate offer sweetness.
Raspberry and white chocolate generosity persists on the palate.
Tannins appear effortless and enmeshed within fruit, namely white cherry and rhubarb.
Oak sits in the background and layered behind crunchy acidity.
Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon has established itself as one of Australia\'s favourite premium red wines. Since its first vintage in 1976, Koonunga Hill\'s reputation has been built upon its affordable price, its approachability in its youth, with the potential to develop if carefully cellared. Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet is very much a reflection of the Penfolds winemaking style and philosophy. Sourced from premium vineyards across South Australia, the wine is known for its full-flavoured style with excellent Shiraz and Cabernet fruit, firm yet well-rounded structure and balanced oak.
Made as a traditional \'Australian blend\', the Shiraz component provides fleshy fruit flavour while Cabernet provides a frame of fine grained tannins.
