Penfolds `Bin 23` Pinot Noir 2010 (6 x 750mL), Adelaide Hills, SA.

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.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Dark cherry red.

Aroma

Cherries and dark bramble fruits abound with attractive forest notes and lingering warm spices. Subtle charry oak adds additional complexity in a discreet manor, leaving the bright fruit nuancesto remain at centre stage.

Palate

Strawberry and red berry fruits coat the mouth on a bed of soft tannins. A long and persistent finish that lingers and lingers...the wine's silky texture leaves the palate yearning for more...

An exciting trio of Adelaide Hills, Penfolds and Pinot Noir. A rich and silky Bin 23 that salutes all things Pinot Noir, yet retains the Penfolds stamp

  • a clever balancing act!

Food Matching

Taleggio 'sandwich', garden radish, walnut,rocket jelly, pickled carrots and beets (Penfolds Magill Estate Restaurant, Spring Menu 2010).
