    Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines since 1844 and indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era.

    Launched in 1976, Koonunga Hill has established an incredible reputation for value for money and consistency of quality. A blend of 65% Shiraz and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, lively red-berried fruits leap with pomegranate and olive nuances. A balanced, rich palate, with ripe red plums and some darker berries. Grainy, softened tannins and bright acidity delivering plenty of flavour and depth. Rated 92/100 by James Suckling.

    Variety Description

    Shiraz

    Syrah (also known as Shiraz) is a dark-skinned grape variety grown throughout the world and used primarily to produce red wine. The style and flavor profile of wines made from Syrah is influenced by the climate where the grapes are grown with moderate climates (such as the northern Rhone Valley) tending to produce medium to full-bodied wines with medium to high levels of tannins and flavors of blackberry, mint and black pepper notes. In hot climates (such as the Barossa Valley of Australia), Syrah is more consistently full-bodied with softer tannin, jammier fruit and spice notes of liquorice, anise and earthy leather. In many regions the acidity and tannin levels of Syrah allows to have favorable aging potential

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most widely recognized red wine grape varieties. It is grown in nearly every major wine producing country among a diverse spectrum of climate. Cabernet Sauvignon became internationally recognized through its prominence in Bordeaux wines where it is often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. South Australia, Western Australia & California in the USA have become well-known for their Cabernet Sauvignon wines. The classic profile of Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be full-bodied wines with high tannins and noticeable acidity that contributes to the wine's aging potential.
