Our oenologists' opinion
Its dull garnet color announces a fresh nose of dark fruits with licorice and menthol aromas. The palate is balanced, bold, fine, big, ample, fleshy, characterized by gingerbread, fleshy and chewy. Its nice tannins are coated and tight with a tensed and fresh finish. Nice wine.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation
Established in Australia’s most prominent wine regions, Penfolds thrives through an ancestral tradition and savoir-faire. The maison sources its grapes from 220 vineyards spread across Australia’s best terroirs to produce three different styles of wines with single vineyard, single region or multiple-regions’ blendings.
- Terroir: Specialized in multi-region wines, Penfolds is established in Australia’s most qualitative wine regions. The grapes selected for the Koonunga Hill Seventy Six Shiraz Cabernet are sourced out from the Barossa Valley, the McLaren Valley and Coonawarra.
- Vinification: Penfolds’ three different wine styles are driven by the maison’s continuous search for perfection and improvement. The Koonunga Hill Seventy Six Shiraz Cabernet is a multi-region blend. The purpose here was for the maison to propose a wine that will remain consistent across different vintages and will speak for Penfolds.
