Winemaker Notes

Colour: Deep crimson red with a vibrant purple rim.

Bouquet: Forward aromas of rich plum and blackberry fruit with hints of licorice and enticing eucalyptus. Further inspection reveals cherry/chocolate and notes of black olive and rhubarb.

Palate: Fleshy small berry and plum fruit flavors are harmoniously backed by savory secondary notes. A seamless, sculptured mouthfeel leads to the warm and lingering finish. Fine fruit tannins combine with well-integrated oak to enhance the generous fruit flavors.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 89
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet in color with a touch of brick, the 2002 Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet has a meaty / earthy nose with a slight dried herb character plus nuances of black pepper, duck breast and black olives. Medium-bodied, the palate offers a good concentration of mature fruit, crisp acid and a medium to firm level of fine tannins, finishing long. Drinking now, it should keep to 2020+.

Penfolds Wines, , Australia
Penfolds
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.

Pauillac

View all wine

The leader on the Left Bank as far as number of first growth classified producers within its boundaries, Pauillac has more than any of the other appellations, at three of the five. Chateau Lafite Rothschild and Mouton Rothschild border St. Estephe on its northern end and Chateau Latour is at Pauillac’s southern end, bordering St. Julien.

While the first growths are certainly some of the better producers of the Left Bank, today they often compete with some of the “lower ranked” producers (second, third, fourth, fifth growth) in quality and value. The Left Bank of Bordeaux subscribes to an arguably outdated method of classification that goes back to 1855. The finest chateaux in that year were judged on the basis of reputation and trading price; changes in rank since then have been miniscule at best. Today producers such as Chateau Pontet-Canet, Chateau Grand Puy-Lacoste, Chateau Lynch-Bages, among others (all fifth growth) offer some of the finest wines in all of Bordeaux.

Defining characteristics of fine wines from Pauillac include inky and juicy blackcurrant, cedar or cigar box and plush or chalky tannins.

Layers of gravel in the Pauillac region are key to its wines’ character and quality. The layers offer excellent drainage in the relatively flat topography of the region allowing water to run off into “jalles” or streams, which subsequently flow off into the Gironde.
