Penfolds, Koonunga Hill Shiraz (2009)

South Australia
13.5%, screwcap, non organic, around $14

The medium bodied palate was bursting with a mixture of plums, red berries and spice. The tannins were surprisingly soft. I later learnt that the bottle had been opened the day before. Given the impressive result, I formed the view that this wine will benefit from short to medium term cellaring. This wine is great value - 91.
