Behind Koonunga Hill Seventy-Six Shiraz Cabernet

Peter Gago
Penfolds Chief Winemaker

"2008...then 2010...now 2012.  Three very strong vintages, three very strong Penfolds reds. All destined to reward cellaring, all destined to reinforce the stature of Koonunga Hill, and the memory of the 1976! No need to ration...invest wisely."


Variable conditions continued through the period from October to December, merging to a mild summer, with a few short periods of heat. The mild daytime temperatures and cool evenings across most of the ripening period, allowed for impressive flavour development, without inflated baumes. Balanced canopies matched fruit load, providing even yet not too speedy ripening. Warm dry conditions continued throughout harvest with fruit picked in optimal condition. Smaller berry and bunch sizes were noticeable in most regions and this, coupled with favourable weather conditions, saw great results for some quality markers – colour, tannin profile, fruit concentration and flavour depth.
