A supple, plummy red with generous, full-bodied texture and layers of flavour. Fleshy blackberries round out this lovely wine.
Shiraz Cabernet food pairings: hamburgers, meat lovers' pizza.

|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
There's a whole lot going on in your glass with this South Australia Shiraz/Cab Sauv blend. It's opaque plum red with predominantly Cab aromas of dark berries, green olive, rosemary and cola. Take a sip and discover layers of flavour: dark and dried fruit, dates, figs, bay leaf, soy and pink peppercorn. Very focussed, silky smooth with elegant finish. Surprise! This is a terrrific value at $16.45.

|Bella Mcdowell rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Pours a deep ruby. Nose of dark fruit with a hint of oak. It is a robust wine with tastes of dark cherry, plum, and blackberry. The wine has balanced tannins and delivers a nicely for the price. (I have found it readily available for $10)
|Jason Solanki reviewed this wine as follows:|
Red berries, touch of earth aromas. Gentle ripe fruit, currants and light oak on the palate. Medium-full bodied. Chalky tannins really get onto your teeth - will definitely have to brush well tonight! Not big and uncomplicated. Good, everyday wine that will go well with many simple meat dishes, including curries and pastas.
|Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon has established itself as one of Australia's favourite premium red wines. Since its first vintage in 1976, Koonunga Hill's reputation has been built upon its affordable price, its approachability in its|
youth, with the potential to develop if carefully cellared.
Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet is very much a reflection of the Penfolds winemaking style and philosophy. Sourced from
premium vineyards across South Australia, the wine is known for its full-flavoured style with excellent Shiraz and Cabernet fruit, firm yet well-rounded structure and balanced oak.
Made as a traditional 'Australian blend', the Shiraz component provides fleshy fruit flavour while Cabernet provides a frame of
fine grained tannins.
