4 /5

This wine is entirely in the legendary tradition of a Penfolds classic. He is a perfect enjoyment and a pure varietal gem. The Koonunga Hill Shiraz is grown up, sophisticated and friendly. The dark, almost purple red prepares hot and juicy aromas in the bouquet. Ripe plums and cherries mingle with floral notes and the finest vanilla. The body of Shiraz is medium-bodied and open-hearted. Blueberries give juiciness, pepper and licorice spice up the taste. The oak notes are in a nice balance to the deep fruit: The Koonunga Hill Shiraz is soft, warm and comfortable echoing. A world rightly acclaimed and beloved red wine.

Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz is the first wine I drank with my parents.
Ruby colour at first sight, but then it has more intense hues. Reminded me of wild berries. We didn't cool it enough before drinking, but it still taste delicious.
Wine and cheese, it's a safe bet.

A Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz that was served as dessert of a good meal. The Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz is a familiar wine of Penfolds Wines.
Cherry red colour. When you smell it you can note aromas such as licorice, violet, .... The 2014 tastes a little bit oily in the mouth.
