Penfolds Bin 28 Shiraz 2019, South Australia

by | Sep 27, 2021

Formally known as Bin 28 Kalimna vineyard Shiraz. Now a McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Padthaway and Wrattonbully blend matured in American oak. Pungent aromas of chocolate, blackberry, licorice and vanilla oak. A touch jammy. Powerful fruit driven wine, full bodied. Flavours consist of mocha, black cherry, fruit cake. A Barossa driven wine in my opinion. Fine dry tannins and a long intense finish.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
