Launched in 1962, Penfolds Bin 128 is a regional wine
that reflects the unique climate and growing conditions
of South Australia's Coonawarra district and the relatively
elegant style of cool-climate Shiraz. From the 1980 vintage,
French oak replaced American, highlighting the pepper,
spice and floral characteristics that define this style. Since the
mid-1980's, greater attention has been paid to fruit ripeness,
resulting in a wine that is fuller in style and structure.
Color: A vibrant and glistening, raspberry red.

climate waft of ground black pepper. Notes of

than its stablemate, Bin 28. The 2004 vintage
is true to style, and what's more, one of the
stronger Bin 128's.
