Penfolds Bin 28 is a showcase for warm-climate australian Shiraz
- ripe, robust and generously flavoured without reliance on new
oak or excessive alcohol. First made in 1962, 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 that shows
very clear, ripe fruit definition when young, with plenty of
concentration and fruit sweetness, and minimal oak influence.
Color: Deep brick red.
Nose: Generous, warm climate Shiraz is immediately
apparent - mirrored by rich Christmas
pudding, plum and cherry aromas. Spice
and demi-glace secondary notes add to the
aromatic interest. Flashes of liquorice, white
chocolate and cinnamon arise with a swirl.
Palate: Medium-bodied and mouth filling, plummy,
berried fruits mesh with dark chocolate,
mocha and spice notes. The 2003 Bin 28 is
true to its fleshy, well structured style with
ripe tannins and balanced acidity.
