Koonunga Hill Seventy Six is a multi-regional
South Australian blend of Shiraz and Cabernet, a
wine style that has played a pivotal role in
Australia’s rich winemaking history.
Crimson with a glossy and bright lustre.
An instant ascent of fruits … lifted raspberry fruit jube/fruit pastille.
Moroccan spices and vanilla pod shroud meaty/crackling elements … very Penfolds, very Koonunga Hill!
A skerrick of cedar oak /pencil shavings; a reminder of the wine’s age at this point –undoubtedly soon to be absorbed & concealed.
Balanced and complete.
Spicy and fruit-driven … however, this time it is blackberry not raspberry jubeson palate.
Non-obtrusive, yet just recognisable oak detected on finish.
Softened tannins and ‘just-right’ acidity invoke textural allure.
