Some of Penfolds finest riesling parcels in the early 1970s were bottled under this label and the Koonunga Hill Autumn Riesling acknowledges the original 1972 vintage by closely adhering to the orig inal packaging with a fitting 'retro' label. Thewine pays further homage to the original through being specially crafted to develop further with bottle age.'
Floral at first then a profusion of lime and green apple, fabulous acidity - this is sublime, dry Riesling. Penfold's have a more premium Riesling and it's very good, but pound for pound this is unbea table, steely, nervy dry Riesling from the high Eden.In the winery
Fresh straw and citrus continue onto the very approachable palate amidst pretty florals with lime juice flavours. Furthermore, traces of pink sherbet and lemon meringue ensue closing with a soft and balanced acid that makes this wine immediately enjoyable, however, will age well over the next 5 - 10 years.
