Winemaker's Notes:

The color is plum red. The nose shows fresh fruit aromas of red berries with varietal leafy notes. There are more complex aromas of apple and rhubarb pie integrated with smooth, vanillin oak and some spicy, charry overtones.

A medium bodied wine with flavors of plum and earth across a succulent mid-palate that finishes with fresh minerally textured tannins. The finish is mouth filling with gentle cedary oak.

The Koonunga Hill Cabernet Merlot has successfully built upon this tradition, offering Cabernet's up-front dark fruit flavour and lengthy finish, while Merlot's juicy plum fruit fills out the midpalate to create a seamless wine from start to finish.

A classic wine for pizza and pasta dishes.

About Penfolds Wines:

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
