Food Pairings for Penfolds Koonunga Hill Cabernet Merlot
External Reviews for Penfolds Koonunga Hill Cabernet Merlot
Bright and lively, with a supple texture and currant flavors that linger gently. Drink now.
Lithe, supple style has a nice core of currant and plum flavor, shaded with a touch of cedar. Drink now.
Fresh and bright, with black cherry and dusky herb flavors on a supple frame.
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.
Concentrated, sweet cherry flavors have a touch of tannin for pairing with ribs.
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 sauteacute;ed duck breasts.
The Koonunga Hill Cabernet Merlot has successfully built upon this tradition, offering Cabernets up-front dark fruit flavour and length, while Merlots juicy plum fruit fills out the mid-palate to create a seamless wine from start to finish.Koonunga Hill Cabernet Merlot is defined by its full-flavoured style with excellent fruit and approachability. The wine makes moderate use of oak maturation to add complexity while remaining in balance with the wines fresh fruit flavours. - Winery
