Das Bouquet verführt mit üppiger Fülle dunkler Fruchtaromen und Noten von Schokolade, schwarzen Oliven, Lakritz und Gewürzen, die in einem eleganten Wechselspiel mit der feinen Frucht von Schwarzen Johannisbeeren verschmelzen.

Zum 30-jährigen Jubiläum ehrte Penfolds seinen Koonunga Hill 76 mit einem Retro-Design. Trauben aus bester Lage, schonende Vergärung und 11 Monate Fassreife machen die Geburtstagsedition zum einzigartigen Wein mit fruchtig-würzig-pikanter Tiefe. Das Bouquet verführt mit üppiger Fülle dunkler Fruchtaromen und Noten von Schokolade, schwarzen Oliven, Lakritz und Gewürzen, die in einem eleganten Wechselspiel mit der feinen Frucht von Schwarzen Johannisbeeren verschmelzen.


Winemaker's Notes:

Since its inception, Penfolds Koonunga Hill has always aimed to deliver quality, value and consistency. The original 1976 Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet is a legendary wine that is still drinking well today. In its short 'contemporary' history, the Seventy Six label has already enjoyed multiple show successes and the Penfolds Winemaking Team are confident the 2009 vintage reaches the same quality and expectations as its predecessors. The wine has a deep, dark red core with purple at the rim and has lifted aromas of dark berried fruits including raspberry and blueberry. The integrated oak offers vanilla bean and mmocha notes, with dark chocolate and liquorice arising with some savoury roast lamb notes. This Shiraz Cabernet is medium to full bodied with rich, generous dark berry fruit flavours. The balance is excellent and finishes with obvious, but well integrated tannins, creating a long, lingering finish. It is drinking well now, but will continue to be a great wine over the next 7-10 years. Try with beef, lamb and Mediterranean dishes.
