Penfolds Koonunga Hill:

Today, Chief Winemaker is Peter Gago, and the range consists of the flagship blend as well as single varietal Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, a Cabernet/Merlot blend and Chardonnay.

Clean black cherry flavors balance the tight, chalky tannins of this wine; to pair with steak.

Sweet and perfumed, with additional aromas of bacon and baking spice. The palate is warm, chunky and jam-packed with plum fruit and tasty spice. The tail end is meaty and toasty, with some chocolate notes adding richness.

Lithe, supple style has a nice core of currant and plum flavor, shaded with a touch of cedar. Drink now.

A full bodied, fruit-driven wine, this predominately Cabernet Sauvignon is intermingled with Merlot for an immediate consumption experience. It is a food-friendly wine found in fine dining restaurants across the United States. Its nose offers up Bing cherry and plum nuances, with flavors displaying a structured Cabernet Sauvignon backbone with jammy characteristic. The wine team has over 30 years of making this wine and continues to show award-winning consistency with it. Drink it with grilled lamb, gorgonzola cheese or sautéed duck breasts.
