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 release of Koonunga Hill Shiraz has successfully built upon these traditions, offering rich Shiraz fruit flavours of plums and blueberries layered with a touch of pepper and spice. The wine has excellent structure and length, and while it is ready for drinking now, the wine will continue to develop in the short term.

Winery Tasting Notes
Dense red with purple hues.
The nose shows dark fruit aromas of plum and cherry with a fresh red berry lift. Floral notes, hints of spice, white chocolate and vanillin notes add complexity.
A medium bodied wine with flavours of Madeira cake, pudding and blueberries with spice, pepper and hints of liquorice adding complexity. A rich, ripe and generous wine with voluptuous full flavoured fruit and a creamy texture.
Spicy Italian sausages with red wine jus.
Now to 2014.
