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.
Dense plum red
Red-curranted varietal primary fruits sitting alongside glacéed fruits…cherry, almond, musk. Nuances of tanned leather, aniseed, cooked rhubarb coalesce yet still exude their own aromatic contribution. Earthy, organic Shiraz - pan scrapings, game meat jus, marrow reduction. Honest, true to style.
Even and balanced across palate. Freshness, juiciness with softened supportive tannins … almost a mousse-like (lightened) texture. Milk chocolate/cannoli custard flavours, chocolate milkshake sans malt. Berried fruits, assorted spices. Palate altogether different to that earlier suggested on nose…positively, intriguingly
