Well-regarded since launch, the Koonunga Hill Cabernet Sauvignon showcases the typical cellarability that all Penfolds wines are renowned for. The wine has excellent structure and length and while it is ready for drinking now, it will gain further complexity with short term cellaring.

An immediate aromatic lift of equal parts fruit and spice. Sumac, blackberry, blackbeansauce and plum. Blue fruited generosity and a violet allure which is only just detectable.
Playing within Penfolds boundaries yet still abiding by KoonungaHill rules….. approachable, vibrant and energetic. Graphite core, beetroot juice and macadamia complexity. Grainy tannins, Nori savoury character and brine. Quintessential 2016 plushness. A vintage that didn’t discriminate when offering generosity.
Origin: Multi-regional blend, South Australia. Wrattonbully, Padthaway, Coonawarra, Mount Benson and Barossa Valley.
Maturation: Stainless steel, French & American oak.
Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon.
Autumn and winter were dry and cool across South Australia. Record low rainfall prevailed through September to March, with some relief seen only in January and February. The climactic conditions meant the start of the growing season was slightly delayed in most regions. The relatively mild ‘Indian’ summer, characterised by extreme heat, ensured the fruit was able to ripen evenly and develop desirable flavours.
