Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet 750ml

Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon has established itself as one of Australia's favourite premium red wines.

Since its first vintage in 1976, Koonunga Hill's reputation has been built upon its affordable price, its approachability in its youth, with the potential to develop if carefully cellared.

Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet is very much a reflection of the Penfolds winemaking style and philosophy.

Sourced from premium vineyards across South Australia, the wine is known for its full-flavoured style with excellent Shiraz and Cabernet fruit, firm yet well-rounded structure and balanced oak.

Made as a traditional 'Australian blend', the Shiraz component provides fleshy fruit flavour while Cabernet provides a frame of fine grained tannins.




Balanced and even throughout. Medium bodied.

Predominantly red fruits noted at this early stage – loganberry, mulberry and red-cherry. Tempting to speculate what they will morph into with time in bottle!

(‘Just right’) tannins, acidity and oak in unison conspire to afford both instant drinkability and the promise of longer-term delivery.

The above statement reinforced by the second sip being better than the first … always a good sign.



Above-average rainfall offered the grapevines across South Australia healthy soil moisture profiles in the lead up to the growing season.

Cool spring conditions initially slowed vine growth. Temperatures gradually warmed in October with vines producing large canopies and little irrigation was required.

Vintage was delayed by up to a month in some regions. Weather conditions during harvest were generally dry favouring fully ripened grapes with well-developed colours and flavours.
