Tasting Notes:

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.

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.

Autumn and winter rainfall were above the long-term average. Rain stopped abruptly in early August with only light showers observed throughout spring. Low top soil moisture halted canopy growth early in the season giving vines an open canopy. A significant rainfall event in early January was a defining moment, giving the vines a much needed boost during veraison. February brought weekend heat spikes, pushing mean maximum temperatures well above the average resulting in early ripening and harvest.

Stainless steel, French & American oak.
