In the Australian wine-growing region of South Australia, the grapes for the pure vine variety, full-bodied Koonunga Hill Shiraz from Penfolds grow.
In the glass this wine shines in a dense ruby red with purple highlights. The lush bouquet enchants the nose with a fruity aroma of ripe cherries and plums. Fresh berries, floral notes, fine spices and deliciously creamy vanilla are added. The medium body is covered with ripe, juicy fruit aromas (blueberries, fruit cake) and spicy hints (pepper and liquorice). This Australian red wine has a wonderful balance between the fruitiness and the wood aromas, which give this wine a very long and soft finish.

The Shiraz grapes for this red wine are harvested from selected plots in the South Australia region. Arrived in the Penfolds wine cellar, the grapes are first fermented in stainless steel tanks. Once the fermentation process is complete, this red wine is aged in oak barrels for 6 months.
