An immediate aromatic lift of equal parts fruit and spice. Sumac, blackberry, blackbean sauce and plum. Blue fruited generosity and a violet allure which is only just detectable. Playing within Penfolds boundaries yet still abiding by Koonunga Hill 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.
