Bin 28 offers a showcase of warm-climate Australian Shiraz – ripe, robust and generously flavoured. First made in 1959, Bin 28 is named after the famous Barossa Valley Kalimna Vineyard purchased by Penfolds in 1945 and from which the wine was originally sourced. Today, Bin 28 is a multi-region, multi-vineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented.
Dark deep red.
Exotic. A debut of camphor, lanolin, cold lamb, parsnip/vegetable stock.
Courted by an ascent of vanilla sponge / teacake and rocky-road marshmallow.
Followed by wafts of coffee ground spices and biscuity/wafery hazelnut.
Vibrant, fresh and lively.
Long, elongated tannins – sleek, slick and slender!
Dark black-cherry fruit flavours, generous and more-ish! (And just why can’t we say Cherry Ripe!)
Succulent; neither alcohol nor oak intrude. Unobtrusive acidity will ensure cellarability, should it (hopefully) be pursued.
