PENFOLDS BIN 28 KALIMNA SHIRAZ -750ML

$33.99

The earliest releases of Bin 28 were single-vineyard wines, produced from grapes grown on the famous Kalimna vineyard at the northern end of the Barossa Valley. With demand increasing, it became essential to extend sourcing to regions outside the Barossa and so during the 1970s, Bin 28 became a multi-regional, warm-climate South Australian blend.Early vinification techniques originated from the development of Grange. Today the wine is matured in older American oak hogsheads to enhance fruit complexity and natural tannin structure.Bin 28 is inherently richer in style than Bin 128 and Koonunga Hill and despite the fact that it can be an earlier drinking style, this wine has a reputation for improving with medium-term cellaring in the right conditions. | Rare rib eye steakBoeuf en crouteTwice cooked duck maryland |

Description

Wine Spectator 90 points – The cherry and plum flavors have good intensity and appealing traction from dense tannins and notes of black licorice and tobacco. The tannins firm up further on the appealingly chewy finish, where details of clay and dried olive emerge. Drink now through 2029. 9,560 cases imported. -MW.April/2019Wine & Spirits 93 points – Named for one of Penfolds’ Barossa Valley vineyards, this wine includes fruit from Barossa, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Adelaide and Wrattonbully. After a year in neutral American oak barrels, the wine has matured into a luscious red with layers of detail to the plummy fruit, integrating mint and pepper into the cocoa and cinnamon of oak. There’s freshness in the tannins, their grip opening with air to reveal more floral tones and a graceful texture of iron and silk..February/2019Wine Advocate 91 points – The full-bodied 2016 Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz is a blend of fruit from Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Upper Adelaide and Wrattonbully. It’s a warm-climate, rich, plush Shiraz, with a velvety mouthfeel and lingering savory notes on the finish..October/2018James Suckling 91 points – A warm, early harvest has delivered a wine with more dried, baked blackberries and plums, reflecting the DNA of Penfolds style, and a wine that makes a more savory, spicy and earthy impression than the previous 2015 release. The palate is assuredly rich and round with blackberry and dark plum-pastry flavors, layered on silky, dense and rich, ripe tannins. Long and mellow. Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Upper Adelaide, Wrattonbully fruit sourcing. Drink now or hold..November/2018Jeb Dunnuck 90 points – The 2016 Shiraz Kalimna Bin 28 is another wine that comes from multiple regions in South Australia. It’s a ripe, sexy beauty that gives up tons of blackberry and black cherry fruits intermixed with notions of spice box, licorice, and chocolate. It’s medium to full-bodied, has tons of fruit and texture, and is a pleasure bent beauty that stays balanced and incredibly drinkable. Enjoy it over the coming 7-8 years (it should keep even longer if you’re so inclined)..December/2018 |
