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.
Appearance: Crimson with a ruby red brightness at the rim.
Nose: Undoubtedly cabernet, there is no denying the DNA. Steely graphite, pomegranate liveliness and seared pepper crusted beef. Dried herbs aromatically circle around the varietal cabernet fruit.
Palate: White cherries and cranberry follow aromatic pomegranate, bringing an associated succulence that borders on austerity.
Fine silky tannins, a steely core, graphite and ferric backbone provides shape. A solid framework for the fruit and tannins to hinge upon.
