The first day this wine was pretty awful--very very bitter. On the second day though, it was so, so much better. It was smooth, but with a hint of peppery spice. So good!

This one got better from day 1 to day 2 to day 3. Day 1 it was not very good at all and I could understand the previous reviewer. When I threw it in the fridge on day 3 and poured a glass it was actually quite nice, tasted like a Shiraz should with red fruits, some dark fruit, and a little pepper on the semi-dry finish. Considering the three day average I give it 3 glasses, but it was a very enjoyable 4 on day 3. I would encourage anyone who buys a bottle of this to open, then put a bottle topper in it, and let it sit for a day or two, then try it.

Juicy, ripe black fruit, red berries, with fairly soft tannins and not overly peppery or oaky.

Inky violet color. Cassis, cherry and tobacco on the nose. Showing its cabernet element right now, offering zesty red- and blackcurrant flavors and a bitter cherry pie quality. Tannins frame the sweet fruit on the finish, which is attractively sweet, focused and persistent.


External Review

Inky purple. Blackberry jam and plum preserves on the nose, with a subtle smoky element adding complexity. Creamy and a touch sweet, offering deep dark berry flavors and slow-building tannins. The smoky note repeats on the finish, which is nicely persistent and noticeably sweet. This crowd-pleaser is ready to drink.

Bright and lively, with modest currant and dusky spice flavors. Drink now.

This is polished, delivering a bright mouthful of plum and berry flavors. Remains open and inviting through the fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2012.

Koonunga Hill Shiraz 2008/2009 - Penfolds: Koonunga Hill Shiraz 2008/2009 - Rotwein von PenfoldsDieser Shiraz präsentiert sich in einem dichten Pflaumenrot im Glas, am Rand mit purpurnen Reflexen. Sein reiches Bukett verströmt warme und würzige Fruchtnoten dunkler Pflaumen und Kirschen sowie frische Nuancen von roten Beeren, cremiger Vanille, Gewürzen und zart duftenden Blüten. Der Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz ist sehr vollmundig, am Gaumen erleben wir einen mittelkräftigen Körper, reif und warm. Schön saftig zeigen sich Aromen von Blaubeeren und frischem Obstkuchen. Es gesellen sich weihnachtliche Gewürze, Pfeffer und Lakritz dazu. Wunderbar ausgewogen sind Frucht und Eiche, lang anhaltend sein Finale. Dieser Rotwein schmeckt hervorragend zu Rinderbraten, Steaks und Lammgerichten, zu Lasagne, pikant gefüllten Canneloni oder Ravioli und mittelkräftigen Käsesorten.Daten von Koonunga Hill Shiraz 2008/2009 von PenfoldsWeingut: PenfoldsLand: AustralienRegion: Barossa ValleyRebsorte: ShirazInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Restsüße: trockenLagerfähigkeit: 5 bis 7 JahreEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 bis 18°C Barossa Valley

A gentle, nicely modulated style offers a welcome balance between ripe blueberry and black pepper flavors with a sweet leather note as the finish persists. Drink now through 2009.

Fresh and lively, a juicy mouthful of blueberry, blackberry and cedar flavors that remain crisp through the finish. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
