Tasting Notes

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.

Colour 

Deep red-purple

Nose

Deep-set blackberry, plum, mint, menthol aromas with some cedar notes.

Palate

Very juicy, concentrated palate with intense blackberry, mint flavours and strong gravelly tannins. Finishes a touch sappy green at the finish. Best to drink while still relatively primary.

Please Note

A collector's item! We believe this wine to be wonderful - however, as with all aged wines, it comes with a 'Buyers be aware' clause, and some labels may not be perfect. If you have any queries, please just drop us an email or give us a call!
