A multi regional blend of Shiraz from across South Australia’s premium wine growing regions. Koonunga Hill 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.
Medium depth, vibrant crimson
Raspberries and strawberries initially combine, a generosity of energetic red fruits.
Serving as a great counterpoint to the Cabernet/Shiraz blend which offers dark fruits, Koonunga Hill Shiraz offers fresh cranberry, red currants and a sweetness that is reminiscent of red liquorice and white chocolate.
Pink peppercorn spice scattered amongst the fruit and a violet-based floral allure.
Red plum, exotic aniseed and candied fennel add to the vibrant fruit mix that the nose suggests…..and unsurprisingly carries through to the palate. A slipperiness in texture, a succulence in acid profile and an elastic bounce on the palate. Subtle brioche/croissant pastry-like texture we have to assume is evidence of oak-derived maturation. Fine tannins, tamed and seamless.
