Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabarnet
Since its first vintage in 1976, Koonunga Hill’s reputation has been built upon its affordable price and 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.
NOSE: Lively and fresh red-berried fruits leap out of glass.… and then, scents of pomegranate and rhubarb. An ascent of olive nuances no doubt Cabernet derived? Ditto, tomato leaf.Until swamped by a wave of shiraz spice & fruit. Subtle, supportive oak registers.
PALATE: A balanced, rich and full palate. The olive aromatics noted above transpose and merge effortlessly into the palate’s flavour pool. Grainy, softened tannins and bright acidity induce immediate appeal and drinkability.
