Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet – 2011

Koonunga 2011(450 x 600)Whenever you hear or see Penfolds what’s the first thing that springs to mind? is it the 80’s cartoon series Danger Mouse, for those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about it was a popular kids cartoon about a super hero mouse and his bumbling assistant Penfold. No, well maybe it’s just me.

Anyway the bottle in question is the Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet, (still hearing the Danger Mouse theme tune) . Although It’s been a while since I drank any Penfolds and I’d forgotten that they are, pretty decent wines.

This was the 2011 vintage which by all accounts wasn’t a great one (lots of rain) causing the wines to be a little less fruity in flavour. In the glass, very deep inky colour with muted aromas of dark ripe berries, a little floral, herby and smokey. Taste – Medium to full bodied, rich with some jammy sweetness but with a bitter liquorice finish and some pretty grippy tannins.

Needed some time in the glass to fully enjoy but never the less a pretty good entry level Penfolds and a definite buy again.
