Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet 2017

South Eastern Australia, AustraliaSurprisingly fresh and red-fruited, it jumps from the glass with peppery, plummy fruit. Crafted through blending, it appears this label is moving away from the ripe black fruit toward a cool-climate version. Long and soft, its raspberry/chocolate finish solidifies the structure, acidity, and appeal of a wine that will age a decade or more. The 77/23 blend of shiraz/cabernet sauvignon represents the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Langhorne Creek and Coonawarra.Tasted: 27 October 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.49 BCLS AB 15.50 fine wine boutiques ON 17.00 SK 18.00 MB 16.00 NS 18.00 NF 17.50 NB 18.50 PEI 12.50 QC 18.00 Producer: PenfoldsDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
