PENFOLDS KOONUNGA HILL SHIRAZ CABERNET

$16.99

Penfolds’ famous reds need little introduction. Koonunga Hill occupies a lower rung of the Penfolds quality ladder, but it’s not exactly ordinary. Lightly jammy raspberry and blackberry fruit have instant attraction, and complexity comes from touches of mint, pepper and earthy background oak. Medium-bodied, deeply flavoured, lingering and smooth, it’s a beautifully made wine at the price.

Colour
Dark plum with a cherry hue.

Nose
Lifted aromatics of red liquorice, fennel root and black rose prevail. Brooding red and black berry “Chambord” is peppered with dried sage, thyme and toasty oak notes.

Palate

Dried rosemary and sage give the wine a sense of earthiness.
Fine, elegant tannins which frame and capture fruit depth providing length and balance.
