Bin 128 is a regional wine that reflects the unique climate and
growing conditions of Coonawarra and the classic varietal
characters of cool-climate Shiraz with subtle oak complexity.
This wine style is noted for its elegant structure and early
drinkability compared with other Penfolds' traditional red wines.
The 1994 Bin 128, from another excellent vintage at Coonawarra,
was made entirely from premium quality Shiraz grapes, harvested
at perfect maturity.
The 1994 Bin 128 is medium red in color with black fruit, earthy, walnut and meaty aromas with
touches of graphite on the nose. The palate is well-concentrated with plenty of
blackberry, blueberry, leathery flavours and ripe,
loose-knit tannins. Finishes chalky dry. Not
particularyly complex, but lovely buoyancy of
fruit. Pairs well with duck, game and lamb.
