Dark ruby-red in color, this wine opens with a fragrant blast of red berry and wild violets, expanding on the palate into nuances of damp earth, crushed raspberry and mocha. Notes of violets rejoin the chorus of fruit and soft tannins on the finish. While this can evolve gracefully for 2 to 3 years, it is eminently delicious to drink now.
Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet is very much a reflection of the Penfolds winemaking style and philosophy. Sourced from premium vineyards across South Australia, the wine is known for its full-flavoured style with excellent Shiraz and Cabernet fruit, firm yet well-rounded structure and balanced oak. Made as a traditional 'Australian blend', the Shiraz component provides fleshy fruit flavour while Cabernet provides a frame of fine grained tannins.
"This smooth, inviting red shows vivid plum and spice flavors that cascade into the tight, peppery finish. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2016. Smart Buy"
A blend of 98% Shiraz & 2% Viognier, this richly concentrated Barossa Shiraz is indicative of the style for which Australia's top production region is famous. The wine is dark in color, rich and dense. There are ample tannins balanced by the powerful fruit. You will note the hints of blackberries, mint, and eucalyptus flavors upfront and in the finish. Try Rubus Barossa Shiraz with rich dishes like lamb shank, Osso bucco, beef steak or roast duck.(from importer's website)
