The WW for this last week was a very pleasant surprise as it is amazingly inexpensive and yet very drinkable. This great combination spoke to the question of being able to drink good affordable wine on a regular basis. Penfold's 2009 Koonunga Hill. The winemaker notes are: “Koonunga Hill is a multi-district shiraz cabernet, based largely on Barossa, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra fruit. It is a classic Penfolds maturation-style wine where fruit complexity and vivacity, rather than oak, are brought to the fore.”
This is an easy drinking wine that works by itself or with food. The lovely berry fruit flavors are nicely balanced with a hint of spice on the finish. A solid 6 and **** on the Oficial Kiwi and Koala Rating Scale. Not only is this **** but it is actually under $10! A case of this provides a very nice go to for drinking at home. This is a very hard to beat wine for the price and drinkability combination. A great drop to pull the cork on when ya mates drop by for a drink.
Happy Tasting Adventures,
Kiwi & Koala
