Tasting Notes

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 a multi-region, multi-vineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented, providing a substantial proportion of the fruit for this vintage.

Colour 

Deep, dark red

Nose

The nose initially exhibits a vibrant mix of dark fruits fused with notes of dark chocolate, cola, anise, liquorice and a skerrick of vanillin. A swirl of the glass teases out violet nuances, overhanging wafts of cold cured meats and scents of the sultana/raisin dough portion of a boiled fruitcake mixture. No oak influence is apparent, as per the Bin 28 blueprint.

Palate

The palate shows a continuum of generous Shiraz varietal prune notes, plum fruits and assorted spices. The wine is plush, yet still tightly structured, with a substantial mid-palate. The noticeable tannins are youthful and powdery.

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!
