Dark, leathery and deep on the nose with rich aromas of macerated fruits and flowers. Firm on entry and immediately showing a blend of power and polish with dark earthy plum and blackcurrant flavors wedded to a tense, firm yet transparent mouth feel. This is already showing hints of tobacco and dried fruit, adding complexity and nuance on the palate which gains hints of boysenberry, vanilla and nutmeg with air. While complex there’s not tremendous depth to the flavors here which turn black fruited and licorice toned on the firm finish, where the structure here powers on for quite some time. This is a serious wine at the price point and one that should be able to improve in the cellar over the short to mid-term, say 2 to 4 years. May underwhelm some who are looking for more at this price point but this is a terrific wine for the money. 87pts

The fruit is fresh and the nose and palate are alive. Blackberry, dark cherry, blueberry with mocha, oak, vanillin from oak, good spice and pepper notes lead to a juicy medium bodied aftertaste that is slightly chewy and lingering. Well done - again. Drink now - Paul 88 points

Koonunga Hill Shiraz offers rich Shiraz fruit flavours of plums and blueberries layered with a touch of pepper and spice. The wine has excellent structure and length, and while it is ready for drinking now, the wine will continue to develop in the short term.This Shiraz is a plumper style with plush red-berried fruits, generosity of flavour and supple ripe tannins. It has excellent structure and length, and while it is ready for drinking now, the Koonunga Hill Shiraz will gain further complexity over the next two to four years. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
