Winemaker's Notes

This juicy and rich wine is a dark, deep, plum red color in the glass. The nose is a combination of sweet aromas - ripe plum fruits, blackcurrants and liquorice. Some freshly-tanned leather, a touch of cinnamon and clove spices. On the palate, there are baked fruit cake flavors, with some ripe blackcurrant tones. Savory, meaty flavors combine with crisp natural acidity and defined tannins.

Penfolds Bin 2, first vintage 1960, was the result of experimental work by Penfolds winemakers to create a medium-bodied, soft-finishing "Australian Burgundy" style, based on Shiraz. Mourvedre grapes were added to soften the Shiraz's intense varietal characters.

Bin 2 reflects Penfolds' multi-region, multi-vineyard blending policy, which enables winemakers to reduce the impact of vintage variation and produce consistent wines every vintage.
