    Winemaker's Notes:

    Not only one of the great red wine bargains of the world, Koonunga Hill now has a world wide reputation for quality, regardless of cost. Australian winemakers are renown for their ability to blend the fruit of various vineyards into a unified whole. In the production of Koonunga Hill, the Penfold's winemaking team scour the country for select parcels of fruit which have the Koonunga Hill character and intensity. Unlike many other reds in its price range, Koonunga Hill is rich and complex with genuine cellaring potential. The modern winemaker's art finds its ultimate expression in Koonunga Hill.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 1998 Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet has peaked with mature notes of tobacco and leather plus a spicy / raisined undercurrent. Ripe and savory in the mouth, it has a medium level of chewy tannins, crispness and a long, eucalypt-laced finish. Drink it now through 2017+.
