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.
An immediate aromatic lift of equal parts fruit and spice. Sumac, blackberry, blackbeansauce and plum. Blue fruited generosity and a violet allure which is only just detectable.
Playing within Penfolds boundaries yet still abiding by KoonungaHill rules….. approachable, vibrant and energetic. Graphite core, beetroot juice and macadamia complexity. Grainy tannins, Nori savoury character and brine. Quintessential 2016 plushness. A vintage that didn’t discriminate when offering generosity.
