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

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, Barossa Valley, Barossa, Australia
Image of 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.

Barossa Valley

View all wine

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as 1860. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, purple juice.

Other Red Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
