Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley|
Colour: Crimson red. Nose: Energetic red fruits wrapped around a steely spine. Aromatics belie the wines regional composition. Ripeness has been swapped for pink peppercorn, white plum and the complexities of fresh Thai mint … more reminiscent of cool climate pockets around the world. Red mulberry and white chocolate offer sweetness. Palate: Raspberry and white chocolate generosity persists on the palate. Tannins appear effortless and enmeshed within fruit, namely white cherry and rhubarb. Oak sits in the background and layered behind crunchy acidity.
