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:

Founded by a young, English doctor in 1844, Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines that have changed the landscape of Australian winemaking. Over the past century, Penfolds has 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 standout wines, both white and red, have been released under the Penfolds masthead. Under the direction of master winemaker, Peter Gago, Penfolds is now found in every major wine market in the country. Extraordinary wines such as Block 42 and Bin 60A have also been released during his tenure. Penfolds wines are now widely celebrated for their diversity and quality across many price-points. The strength of Penfolds is that the wine comes first. Penfolds' range of table wines is utterly Australian, evoking a generosity of spirit and the beauty of the Australian landscape.
