Produced from premium vineyards around South Australia, Penfolds Koonunga Hill is a great value Shiraz packed with flavours and well balanced. Raspberries and strawberries initially combine, a generosity of energetic red fruits. Red plum, exotic aniseed and candied fennel add to the vibrant fruit mix that the nose suggest, and unsurprisingly carries through to the palate. A slipperiness in texture, a succulence in acid profile and an elastic bounce on the palate. Subtle brioche/croissant pastry-like texture we have to assume is evidence of oak-derived maturation. Fine tannins, tamed and seamless. Enjoy now or suitable for short term cellaring.
