Penfolds Koonunga Hill has established itself as one of Australia's favourite names in premium red wine. Since the first vintage in 1976 of Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet, the collection's reputation has been built upon its quality, value and consistency.

The Koonunga Hill Cabernet Merlot has successfully built upon this tradition, offering Cabernet's up-front dark fruit flavour and lengthy finish, while Merlot's juicy plum fruit fills out the mid-palate to create a seamless wine from start to finish.

Winery Tasting Notes


Plum red.


The nose shows fresh fruit aromas of red currant and varietal leafy notes. There are more complex aromas of apple and rhubarb pie integrated with smooth, vanillin oak and some spicy, charry overtones.


A medium bodied wine with flavours of plum and earth across a succulent mid-palate that finishes with fresh minerally textured tannins. The finish is mouth filling with cedary, creamy oak.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Australia's winemaking history of less than two hundred years is brief by European measures though, like Europe, punctuated by periods of extreme success and difficult times. From the earliest winemaking days Penfolds has figured prominently and few would argue the importance of Penfolds' influence on Australia's winemaking psyche.

Without the influence of Penfolds the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer.

Penfolds' reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend. But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times.

If there is anything traditional about Penfolds, it is the practice of constantly reviewing the wines it already does well, and continuously evolving and refining styles as vineyards mature and access to ever older and more varied vineyard sites improves.
