Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Dark plum red color. A nose of assertive chocolate and spice, shrouded in a freshly mixed fruitcake mixture (Irish Christmas cake). From out of an aromatic mist, scents of olive tapenade, creamy mustard seed and almond may be detected. New Oak? Not likely. Evenly weighted across the palate - facilitated by mouth-coating tannins. A mix of cooked beetroot and liqueur chocolate are intertwined with darkberried fruits. Maturation in older oak has sensitively assimilated all flavor and structural elements, sans intrusion.

Penfolds Bin 28 is a showcase for 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, multivineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented, providing a substantial proportion of the fruit for this vintage.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark, deep red-purple; in traditional Bin 8 style, stiffened a little by the '07 vintage; the dark fruits on the bouquet and medium- to full-bodied palate run through plum, blackberry, licorice and chocolate; typical tannin and oak management. "
93 Points

"The 2007 Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz is a style that never sees any new oak, only older American hogsheads. It has intense warm blackberry and lifted kirsch aromas with some chocolate and black olives. Full-bodied with crisp acid and medium-firm fine tannins, it gives a good concentration of evolving fruit and a long finish. Drinking now, it has the stuffing to cellar to 2019."
90 Points

"Filled with layers of red and black berries and accented with hints of vanilla and chocolate, this creamy-textured Shiraz shows some muscle as well, suggesting that while it is approachable now, it will age nicely over the next 10 years or so."
