Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz-Cabernet 2007
Other Red Blends from South Australia, Australia
Koonunga Hill is very much a reflection of the Penfolds winemaking style and philosophy. Since the first vintage of 1976 of Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet, the brands reputation has been built on widespread acclaim.
Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet, a multi-district blend based on Barossa, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra fruit, has become a Penfolds classic with a reputation for over-delivery of quality at its pricepoint.
Australian Wine Companion - "Good hue; bright and fresh, with black and red fruits in very good balance, and supported by gentle tannins, oak second fiddle."
Penfolds Wines Winery
Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines since 1844 and indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine. Since then a series of stand-out wines both white and red have been released under the Penfolds masthead.
Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker and only the 4th custodian of Grange, relishes the opportunity to bring Penfolds to the world stage and is an enthusiastic ambassador and natural educator. Penfolds came to the attention of the US market when 1990 Grange was Wine Spectator’s ‘Wine of the Year’. Since then, Penfolds Grange has become one of the most collectable wines of the world and was honored to grace the front cover, once again, of Wine Spectator, with declarations of Grange as Australia’s Icon

About AustraliaLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.

6 ratings, 3 with reviews33/24/2010There's some fruit (berries and cherry) in the nose. Medium body but the fruits are weak. The finish is dry and tannic, but without any really notable structure or flavors to linger. Drinkable table wine, but nothing impressive.Kim Wooding - Springfield, VA35/1/2010Joe Harbison - Columbus, OH312/2/2010John Glass - Santa Clara, CA39/2/201113/7/2009I was attracted to the Penfolds name. This wine has a good price point and is drinkable, yet unremarkable.Michael Moll - Walsenburg, CO58/8/2010Great wine.
