Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley|
Dark plum with a cherry hue. Lifted aromatics of red liquorice, fennel root and black rose prevail. Brooding red and black berry "Chambord" is peppered with dried sage, thyme and toasty oak notes. Bright and textural with ripe blood plums, dark cherry and blackberries - amplified by tones of vanilla bean creaminess and warm spice. Dried rosemary and sage give the wine a sense of earthiness. Fine, elegant tannins which frame and capture fruit depth providing length and balance.
