Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Fresh and lively, juicy with berry flavors and a tinge of oatmeal. Finishes on a savory note.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Ruby-red. Smoke- and spice accented aromas of cassis, cherry and licorice, with a hint of black pepper in the background. Gently sweet dark berry flavors are brightened by a spicy nuance and pick up tanginess with air. Clings nicely on the finish, which features slightly rigid tannins and a subtle floral pastille quality.

    Colour: Crimson red. Nose: Rich Christmas cake and summer pudding aromas are obvious on the nose with more subtle cinnamon / spicy oak notes adding complexity on the nose. Palate: Deeper, darker fruits are more obvious on the palate with plums, blueberry and dark cherries. Tannins and fruit are well balanced with Shiraz providing a fleshy mouthfeel and Cabernet delivering length and structure, with varietal, chalky tannins. Dark chocolate notes linger on the finish in typical Koonunga Hill style. Food Matches: Ideal with rich tomato based Mediterranean dishes.
