"Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon has established itself as one of Australia’s favourite premium red wines. Since its first vintage in 1976, Koonunga Hill’s reputation has been built upon widespread acclaim, including its most recent accolade - Great Value Red Wine of the Year - awarded to the 1999 vintage at the 2001 International Wine Challenge in London. Koonunga Hill 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 varietal fruit, firm but well-rounded structure and balanced oak. "

91 points "Penfolds has been producing the Shiraz/Cabernet Koonunga Hill for 30 years and it remains an excellent bargain (early releases cost about $1 a bottle). The 2004, an outstanding blend of 62% Shiraz and 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, was aged in old 300 liter hogsheads. Its dense purple color is accompanied by scents of blackberries, truffles, old leather, licorice, and pepper. Heady ripeness, a fleshy mouthfeel, decent acidity, and a long finish suggest it should drink well for 10-12 years." Best 2006-2018
