    Winemaker's Notes:

    Sweet dark plum fruits, red berries and white fruit cake aromatics. There is a mocha/coffee and vanilla lift stemming from the balanced well integrated use of seasoned oak.

    Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon has established itself as one of Australia's favourite premium red wines. Since its first vintage in 1976, Koonunga Hill's reputation has been built upon its affordable price, its approachability in its youth, with the potential to develop if carefully cellared.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Cherry, licorice and dark cola on the nose. Bitter cherry and mint flavors pick up smoky and peppery qualities in the middle palate and show good depth and power. Finishes with good cut and lingering notes of cherry pit and dark chocolate. Pretty serious for an entry-level wine; I've had decade-old versions of this wine that were delicious and I suspect that this will age nicely as well.

    Medium red-purple; has no obvious link to the Koonunga Hill Seventy Six, much lighter, fresher, but less complex, its light- to medium-bodied palate with red and black fruits and fine tannins. Attractive early drinking style.
