Penfold Bin 128 09 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 Crimson red.
Nose An initial wave of savoury temptation
Taste Medium-bodied. Youthful. Bright, fresh raspberry & elderberry fruits... perhaps more evident upon sitting. Unobtrusive oak, totally absorbed and unwilling to reveal country of origin! White chocolate, fruit pastille, fruit jube... wishful or real? Powdery / talc-coating tannins and refreshing & lively acidity on the finish.
Food matches Murray Valley Pork fillet, cannellini beans, morcilla, garden herbs, cauliflower cream (Penfolds Magill Estate Restaurant, Spring Menu 2010).
Region Coonawarra, South Australia.
