Penfolds "Koonunga Hill" Shiraz
Since its inception, Penfolds Koonunga Hill has always aimed to deliver quality, value and consistency. The original 1976 Koonunga Hill Claret is a legendary wine that is still drinking well today. A favourite at Penfolds Re-corking Clinics, collectors value its quality and longevity. Koonunga Hill Shiraz joined the range in 2002, a contemporary reflection of Penfolds multi-regional sourcing philosophy. Shiraz from the warmer districts of South Australia is carefully blended, with the Barossa Valley always well represented.
Nose: Raspberries and strawberries initially combine, a generosity of energetic red fruits.
Palate: Red plum, exotic aniseed and candied fennel add to the vibrant fruit mix that the nose suggests…..and unsurprisingly carries through to the palate.
Finish: A slipperiness in texture, a succulence in acid profile and an elastic bounce on the palate.
