Penfolds Koonunga Hill Cabernet Sauvignon gives you the classic balance of spice and savoury notes backed by soft tannins. Well-regarded since launch, the Koonunga Hill Cabernet Sauvignon showcases the typical cellarability that all Penfolds wines are renowned for. The wine has excellent structure and length and while it is ready for drinking now, it will gain further complexity with short term cellaring.

Wafts of wild white strawberries, fresh vanilla pod and panacotta cream encourage further exploration. A further swirl reveals subtle middle eastern spice nuances of sumac and sweet paprika. Palate: The aromatic spectrum flows onto the palate with an invigorating lash of cranberries and red currants. It is a textured wine, evenly balanced with bright acidity and focused line tannins supporting expressive red fruits.

Penfolds has had its success driven by generations of visionaries and innovators. From its start in 1844 to today, science, art and innovation came together to drive Penfolds to become one of Australia's most famed and respected winemakers.
With the success of early sherries and fortified wines, Dr Christopher and Mary Penfold planted the vine cuttings they carried on their way over here to Australia.
Dr Penfold's medical reputation grew alongside the company, with Mary running the winery. With early Clarets and Rieslings gaining popularity, and Christopher passing, Mary assumed complete responsibility for the winery, which helped Penfolds see years of determination and endeavour.
The rest is history.
Today, despite its great success, Penfolds doesn't rest. Celebrating their 170th anniversary, Penfolds continues to hold dear the philosophies and legends.
