Since its inception, Penfolds Koonunga Hill has always aimed to deliver quality, value and consistency. The original 1976 Koonunga Hill Claret is a legendary wine that is still drinking well today. A favourite at Penfolds Re-corking Clinics, collectors value its quality and longevity. Koonunga Hill Shiraz joined the range in 2002, a contemporary reflection of Penfolds multi-regional sourcing philosophy. Shiraz from the warmer districts of South Australia is carefully blended, with the Barossa Valley always well represented.
Immediately recognisable are aromas of ripe plum, blueberry and sweet spice - undeniably South Australian Shiraz. Savoury notes persist. The palate shows flint, licorice, smoked meat and paprika. Integrated tannins remind us of the wine's place in the Penfolds' family line up.
