Penfolds Koonunga Hill Autumn Riesling 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Penfolds Koonunga Hill has established itself as one of Australia's favourite names in premium wine. The collection's reputation has been built upon its quality, value and consistency, dating back to the original red release from 1976. The Autumn Riesling has lime green hues, whilst the nose displays lifted florals of frangipani and citrus blossom with an alluring sweet musk scent. Florals follow onto an impressive palate with Turkish delight flavours infused with faint lavender; a fine talc acid structure gives great length of flavour and 'linearity'. The small addition of Traminer to this wine makes it a unique offering, respecting the Penfolds winemaking traditions of the early 1970s. Drink now with Asian cuisine, especially salt and pepper squid.
