Aroma: immediately invokes a Koonunga Hill expression of yore -coffee-grind meshed with hazelnuttyoak and vanilla pod.TrésPenfolds. And yet there’s much more –an assortment of fruits, chaperoned by cola & smoked paprika, confidently wrestle to con-temporize the aromatic offer.
Tasting notes: a generous, substantial wine replete with a Coonawarra/Cabernet line structurally offering definition & length. Quince and fig fruits consort with a rhubarb acidity and tannins right across the palate.
