Exquisite parcels of Block 20 Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, Koonunga Hill and Kalimna Vineyard Barossa Shiraz were identified and separately vinified at Magill and Nuriootpa in open and closed headed down fermenters. Towards dryness, the wine was racked into 100% new oak where the wine completed fermentation. After malolactic fermentation, individual components were classified and then selected for inclusion into the 2004 PENFOLDS Bin 60A blend.
Deep in colour
This youthful, elemental wine shows a miraculous overlapping of aromas and flavours. The regional characters of both Coonawarra and the Barossa Valley are finely poised.
The highly perfumed, chamomile/violet/mocha aromas, immense concentration, savoury flavours and classically structured palate are in superb balance. This beautifully defined, cross-regional/ varietal with its meaty nuanced and fine-grained tannins will continue to evolve in the cellar for decades.
