Penfolds Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz

Availability: In stock

Dense core colour. Red fruits on the nose and only a skerrick of detectable oak. At first wafts of a 'deconstructed’ sweet mince tart, dates, prunes followed by higher notes of brulée/bread and cinnamon as well as bay-leaf and tobacco. Quite the aromatic chromatogram! On the palate raspberry and black fruits abound. Chocolate, black licorice and surprisingly nuances of (cold) oyster sauce. Sleek tannins with well-integrated, seasoned oak culminate in a fine balance and enduring finish.

Penfolds Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz
More information:

Penfolds 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. It provides a substantial proportion of the fruit for this vintage.

Australia's winemaking history of less than two hundred years is brief by European measures though, like Europe, punctuated by periods of extreme success and difficult times.

From the earliest winemaking days Penfolds has figured prominently and few would argue the importance of Penfolds’ influence on Australia’s winemaking psyche. Without the influence of Penfolds the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer.

Penfolds’ reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend.

But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times. If there is anything traditional about Penfolds, it is the practice of constantly reviewing the wines it already does well, and continuously evolving and refining styles as vineyards mature and access to ever older and more varied vineyard sites improves
