Penfolds - Kalimna Bin 28 2013Shiraz
Nose: A black aromatic theme graphite, flint, char. A sensitive yet apparent veil of oak ever so shy, compliant.
Palate: Full and expansive. An immersion of flavour saturation and a textural continuum across the palate. Mouth-coating sweet tannins and balanced acidity never confronted by any threat of new oak.
Black olive and chocolate notes resonate with an abundance of fruits and plum, prune, blackberries, wild blueberrie. Persistent length and flavour, finishing firm and assertive.
Peak Drinking: 2017 to 2032 .
Bin 28 offers a showcase of 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, multi-vineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented.
