Reviews of Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz 2014
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.
Dark red colour, reddish brown edges. Nice aromas of blackberries in this . I do not know whether this 2011 was wine or water :).
It was great on the barbecue we made.
