The Bin 2 blend of shiraz and mataro is still relatively uncommon in Australian table wines. Often used in fortified wine production, this grape is widely planted in Barossa Valley. It is valued by winemakers for its blending attributes.

Nose: The aromatics are dominated by brightly lifted red fruits of cranberry, red currant and rhubarb. Scents of freshly cured meats and block olive provide a savoury nuance.

Palate: The enticing aromatics are amplified on the palate. Lacy tannins provide structural foundations, with juicy red fruit acidity giving rise to a balanced medium-bodied wine.

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.

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Crimson red, a shimmer of garnet on the rim.
Nose: Exuberant aromatics. At first memories of black jelly beans, then a gentle spectral gradation to red liquorice and redcurrants. Adhering to this colour theme, goji berry, wild raspberry and a red-fruited chutney.
Palate: Well-balanced. Whirling black fruits and an oscillating shiraz disposition – Bin 28 by any other name, personality intact.Flavours akin to a consommé of dried porcini mushrooms; structurally embedded with grainy/sandy tannins.
Finish: Exits with an almost negroni / Cynar bittersweet clean finish.
