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.

Winery Tasting Notes
Rich Christmas cake and summer pudding aromas are obvious on the nose with more subtle cinnamon / spicy oak notes adding complexity on the nose.
Deeper, darker fruits are more obvious on the palate with plums, blueberry and dark cherries. Tannins and fruit are well balanced with Shiraz providing a fleshy mouthfeel and Cabernet delivering length and structure, with varietal, chalky tannins. Dark chocolate notes linger on the finish in typical Koonunga Hill style.
Ideal with rich tomato based Mediterranean dishes.
