Koonunga Hill Chardonnay reflects Penfolds multi-region, multi-vineyard blending philosophy, which enables the winemaking team to source the best parcels of fruit to produce consistently high quality wines from each vintage. A light to medium-bodied Chardonnay with distinctive primary fruit characters and a subtle underlay of moderate oak
COLOUR: Pale straw with lime green hues NOSE: The usual suspects beckon here - honeydew melon and lime ctirus at the fore, with alluring background hints of white stone-fruit.. Scents of paperbark oak and oatmeal arise, coupled with a creaminess (from time on yeast less?) adding intrigue. PALATE: Zingy and zesty! Limey, citrus fruit with complexing almond meal and a light creamy texture. Subtle, barely perceivable oak. Refreshing, balanced acidity allows this Koonunga Hill expression to be enjoyed upon release and optimally across the following 12 months.

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.
