The Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz 2018 offers fresh cranberry, red currants and a sweetness that is reminiscent of red liquorice and white chocolate. Raspberries and strawberries initially combine, a generosity of energetic red fruits. Pink peppercorn spice is scattered amongst the fruit and a violet-based floral allure. The palate features red plum, exotic aniseed and candied fennel adding to the vibrant fruit mix that the nose suggests and unsurprisingly carries through to the palate. A slipperiness in texture, a succulence in acid profile and an elastic bounce on the palate. Subtle brioche/croissant pastry-like texture we have to assume is evidence of oak-derived maturation. Fine tannins, tamed and seamless.
