Koonunga Hill, first produced in 1976, is named after Penfolds renowned Koonunga Hill vineyard in the Barossa Valley. Celebrating over 30 years of vintages, it has established a reputation far exceeding its expectations as a commercial entry-point wine.
Koonunga Hill is a multi-district Shiraz Cabernet, based largely on Barossa, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra fruit. It is a classic Penfolds maturation-style wine where fruit complexity and vivacity, rather than oak, are brought to the fore.
The original Koonunga Hill blend is still just as popular today. The wine shows all the rich voluptuousness and alluring spice of great Australian Shiraz and adds a welcome element of structure and spine, thanks to some premium Cabernet Sauvignon fruit.
