Penfold Bin 128 02 750ml

Penfolds Bin 128 Shiraz is one of the few Penfolds wines that is not a multi-regional blend.

Launched in 1962, Penfolds Bin 128 is a regional wine that reflects the unique climate and growing conditions of South Australia's Coonawarra district and the elegant style of cool climate Shiraz. From the 1980 vintage, French oak replaced American, highlighting the pepper-and-spice characteristics that define this style. Since the mid-1980s greater attention has been paid to fruit ripeness, resulting in a wine that is fuller in style and structure.

Tasting Notes
Colour Deep red, with a dark core.
Nose The nose is quite intense, with lifted berry, dark pepper and spice aromas. There are appealing black olive and coal tar notes and French oak overtones of cedar and clove.
Taste The palate is solid, tight and defined and is true to style. Flavours of blackcurrant fruits, subtle oak and fine tannins combine to create an impressive flavour and mouthfeel impression. Refreshing, mouthwatering acidity and a pronounced firm finish comp
