Provenance: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ The second release of Bin 23 Pinot Noir is an excellent follow-up to the inaugural 2009 vintage. The Penfolds Bin 23 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir derives its name from Maturation Cellar 23 at Magill Estate. Bin 23 is a bold style reflecting its regional definition, showing the complexities of the many & varied clones of Pinot Noir.
The relationship between Penfolds and the cool climate, high altitude Adelaide Hills wine region continues to shine with the Penfolds Bin 23 Pinot Noir, building on the success and development of the Cellar Reserve Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir.
Like the Cellar Reserve, Bin 23 is cold-soaked, naturally fermented with just one racking pre-bottling - off gross lees (freerun only - no pressings included). The wine isn't fined, but it is filtered.
"This is unashamedly a Penfolds red wine. No attempt has been made to create a Burgundian look-a-like. Not for the fainthearted!" Penfolds Chief Winemaker - Peter Gago.
