Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz

£29
Bin 28 offers a showcase of 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.

COLOUR
Purple with a darkened core

NOSE
An initial impact of high-toned dark notes – a Shiraz tarriness, black-bean sauce. Following, a tussle between the spice jar’s anise and ginger and the blender’s coffee-grind and mocha. Minutes later, without as much as the provocation of a swirl of the glass, the aromatic ascent of pan scrapings, a rich jus and smokey meats.

PALATE
Bright. Volume, generous in every sense. A purple fruit spectrum unfolds – a fresh assortment of plums and dark berries – many varieties of both. What may appear to be a soft, smooth Haighs. Chocolate-like mouth-coating to some, a roasted eggplant texture and creaminess to others! Tannins – soft and even, texture - almost velvety/suede. Yet, still tarry!

Vintages vary by location. The current vintage in stock will be shipped.

Bottle Size: 750ml
