Winemaker 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

All Vintages
JH 93
Australian Wine Companion
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.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
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.

Penfolds Wines, Barossa Valley, Barossa, Australia

Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines since 1844 and indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine. Since then a series of stand-out wines both white and red have been released under the Penfolds masthead.

Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker and only the 4th custodian of Grange, relishes the opportunity to bring Penfolds to the world stage and is an enthusiastic ambassador and natural educator. Penfolds came to the attention of the US market when 1990 Grange was Wine Spectator’s ‘Wine of the Year’. Since then, Penfolds Grange has become one of the most collectable wines of the world and was honored to grace the front cover, once again, of Wine Spectator, with declarations of Grange as Australia’s Icon.

Barossa Valley

View all wine

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as 1860. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, purple juice.

Syrah/Shiraz

View all wine

Marked by unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah accounts for a good deal of some of the most intense, powerful and age-worthy reds in the world. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah still achieves some of its maximum potential here, especially from Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie.

Syrah also plays an important component in the canonical Southern Rhône blends based on Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, adding color, depth, complexity and structure to the mix. Today these blends have become well-appreciated from key appellations of the New World, namely Australia, California and increasingly, with praise, from Washington.

In the Glass

Syrah typically shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper and even bacon, smoke or black olive. In Australia, where it goes under the name Shiraz, it produces deep, dark, intense and often, jammy reds. While Northern Rhône examples are typically less fruity and more earthy, California appears increasingly capable of either style.

Perfect Pairings

Flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb, grilled meats, spareribs and hard, aged cheeses are perfect with Syrah. Blue cheeses are perfect with a dense and fruit-driven Australian Shiraz.

Sommelier Secret

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” winemakers throughout the world have adopted this synonym for Syrah when they have produced a plush and fruit forward wine made in the Australian style. As an aside, Australians are also fond of tempering their fruit-forward Shiraz by blending with Cabernet Sauvignon, which adds depth and structure.
