Penfolds Koonunga Seventy Six Shiraz/Cabernet 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Koonunga Hill, a multi-district blend based on Barossa, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra fruit, has become a Penfolds classic with a reputation for over-delivery of quality at its pricepoint. Beautiful and rich with gobs of cherry, sweet red raspberries and anise spice. Incredible value from an excellent producer.

  Tired of boring old wines from Australia? No? Then you can probably thank Penfolds Wines. Penfolds, founded in 1844 by Mary and Dr. Penfold (Mary gets top billing since she took care of most of the early management and winemaking responsibilities), has completely revolutionized not only its own product lines throughout the years, but also many wines in Australia as a whole. The wine produced by Penfolds was originally prescribed as tonic wines for anaemic patients, with the wine made from Grenache. By 1870, with 60 acres under vine, they were producing many more wines. In the 1920s and 1930s, Penfolds was known for its fortified wine, like many other wineries in the area. 1943 marked the start of a massive expansion for Penfolds Winery, with first the acquisition of Auldana Vineyard and its winery, and then the purchase of Kalimna Vineyard in 1945. By the end of the decade, they owned vineyards in McLaren Vale, Griffith, the Hunter Valley, and Minchinbury. Around the same time, winemaker Max Schubert returned from oversees with a completely new vision for the future of the winery. In the 50s, he started experimenting with the red wine he called Grange, which is a mix of primarily Shiraz and a little Cabernet Sauvignon, and by the 1960s the wine had spread across the Australian wine industry. Not wanting to stop with merely one of the most successful wine projects in the history of Australia, Penfolds Wines started the “White Grange” project in the 1990s, leading to the immensely popular and publicized release of the Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay. Peter Gago became their Chief Winemaker in 2002, and he, along with three winemakers in charge of red wine and one in charge of white, continue the tradition of experimentation and evolution.

Bin 2 Shiraz - Mourvèdre 2009 - Penfolds: Bin 2 Shiraz / Mourvèdre 2009 - Rotwein von Penfolds Im Jahr 1960 startete Penfolds den Versuch, einen Shiraz im Burgunderstil, mit mittlerem Körper und sanftem Finale, zu vinifizieren. Daraus entstand der erste Penfolds BIN 2. Bei diesem Rotwein wird der intensive Charakter der Shiraztraube durch einen kleinen Anteil Mourvèdre verfeinert und ist bis heute ein großer Erfolg. Er ist ein unverkennbarer Vertreter des Stil von Penfolds, mehrere Regionen und Rebsorten miteinander zu vereinen. So werden nur die besten Trauben für einen Wein ausgewählt und ein Wein mit konstanter Qualität erzeugt, auch können auf diese Weise mögliche Jahrgangsunterschiede ausgeglichen werden.Er schmeckt besonders gut zu Wildgeflügel, Schmorgerichten mit Fleisch oder pikanten Käsevariationen.Weingut: PenfoldsLand: AustralienRegion: Barossa ValleyRebsorte: 65% Shiraz, 35% MourvedreInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,5 g/lRestsüße: 3,0 g/lFassreife: in Barriques gereift (8 Monate) empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18 °CLagerfähigkeit: 5-7 Jahre ab Jahrgang Barossa Valley

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.
