Some of Penfolds finest Riesling parcels in the early 1970s were bottled under the Autumn label and the Koonunga Hill Autumn Riesling acknowledges the original 1971, by closely adhering to the original packaging with a fitting ‘retro’ label.

Highly aromatic and perfumed! Asian herbs, lemongrass and coriander are forefront, followed by lemon/lime citrus and freshly harvested straw. The 4.5% addition of Traminer contributes an attractive Turkish Delight fragrance.

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 3 to 5 years.
