Penfold Bin 28 09 750ml

Penfolds Bin 28 is a showcase for warm-climate Australian shiraz - ripe, robust and generously flavoured.

Penfolds Bin 28 is a showcase for 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 multi-region, multi-vineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented, providing a substantial proportion of the fruit for this vintage. "A courageous follow-on to the stellar 50th 2008 release ... No apologies - typical Bin 28 with its trademark early or later drinking option of choice." "Decanting manadatory - to unleash and open up what lurks beneath this tightly-coiled marquee." Penfolds Chief Winemaker - Peter Gago

Tasting Notes
Colour Dense core, purple rim.
Nose Red fruits, and only a sceric of detectable oak. At first - wafts of a 'deconstructed' sweet mince tart - dates, prunes ... Later - higher notes of brulee/bread & butter pudding, cinnamon. Throughout - a staggered scented release of musk, bay-leaf & tobacco. Quite the aromatic chromatogram.
Taste Raspberry, and black fruits abound. Chocolate, black licorice ... and surprisingly nuances of (cold) oyster sauce?! Sleek tannins, belying the wine's textural plushness. Well-integrated, seasoned oak. Balanaced.
Food matches Black Angus beef fillet, baby carrot, mustard, house sprouted legumes and baby herbs.
Region South Australia - with major parcels from Padthaway, Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, Mc Laren Vale & Robe.
