A multi regional blend of Shiraz from across South Australia’s premium wine growing regions. Koonunga Hill Shiraz is a plumper style with plush red-berried fruits, generosity of flavour and supple ripe tannins. It has excellent structure and length, and while it is ready for drinking now, the Koonunga Hill Shiraz will gain further complexity over the next two to four years.
Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz (750ML)
Red mulberry and raspberry coulis are immediately observed.
Blueberry, bramble and earthy elements are offered with a little more encouragement.
Sweet paprika, possibly provided by supportive oak, overlays shiraz vibrancy and generosity.
A steely and slatey texture surprises on the palate, being mentioned before fruit generosity.
Tannins are sleek and supple and oak lies beneath spice and berries, almost providing the foundations for them to be layered on top of.
A hallmark that seems to be emerging from the 2017 vintage … crunchy acidity that provides succulence.
