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, with numerous bottles still taken to the Penfolds Red Wine Re-corking Clinics by collectors who know of its quality and longevity.
In its short 'contemporary' history, the Seventy Six label has already enjoyed multiple show successes. The inaugural 2006 vintage won The Wine Press Club of NSW Trophy for the Exhibitor of the best Dry Red Wine in the Commercial Classes (Classes 6 and 7), at the 2008 Royal Sydney Wine Show.
The 2007 vintage won the same class at The 2009 Royal Sydney Wine Show to make it two in a row.
The 2008 Koonunga Hill Seventy Six Shiraz Cabernet nearly made it three-in-a-row, having to settle with a gold medal at the 2010 Royal Sydney Wine Show. The Penfolds Winemaking Team are confident the 2009 vintage reaches the same quality and expectations as its predecessors.
