Penfolds Shiraz- A National Icon!

Koonunga Hill exemplifies the world-famous Penfolds winemaking philosophy: big flavours courtesy of super-ripe South Australian fruit, plenty of oak and the backbone to last a spell in the cellar.

The Bottom Line

  • Cult classic from Penfolds
  • Made by Peter Gago, new inductee into the exclusive “Barons of the Barossa” fraternity
  • You can’t beat Penfolds for pedigree in South Australian Reds!

This Koonunga Hill label sits just below the famed “Bin Series” in terms of the Penfolds portfolio, and has found its place on countless restaurant wine lists thanks to its rare combination of pedigree, quality and affordability.

Penfolds Chief Winemaker Peter Gago was just this month inducted into the “Barons of the Barossa,” an exclusive wine fraternity dating back to 1976 whose members include the likes of Bill Seppelt, Peter Lehmann and Cyril Henschke. Koonunga Hill clearly shows the hand of Gago and the house style for which all Penfolds Reds have become renowned for: big power, big flavours.

This label is a multi-regional blend, made in the same vein as its world-famous brother Penfolds Grange, by careful selection of the best parcels of fruit from growers across South Australia to create a finished wine in a house style that is instantly recognisable to its fans.

Full flavoured but sophisticated, it shows plenty of ripe berry fruit flavor, and manages to stay smooth, juicy and delicious. It will suit those looking for a bit of extra oomph in their red wines but also want it to be very easily drinkable.



Of course you’re welcome to shell out $700 a bottle for Grange, but for everyday drinking, it’s extremely hard to fault a wine that’s made by the same hands.
