The Kalimna vineyard is one of the finest in Australia and today produces much of the base wine for Grange. Some of the vines here are as old as one hundred years and these low yielding plants produce intensely flavoured fruit that was the inspiration of Bin 28.

Expert Reviews

Dense red-purple; the very rich and concentrated bouquet is full of dark berry fruit and dark Swiss chocolate; the palate is rich and full, with luscious dark plum and rippling tannins. The best Bin 28 for years.

Rating 94 - Drink by 2014 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/1999)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep garnet.

Aroma

Concentrated and rich earthy bouquet, with ripe plum and blackberry fruit. Notes of vanilla and smoke enhanced by aromas of exotic spices, liquorice, violets and freshly tanned leather.

Palate

An expansive and generous mouthful of rich, sweet, berry and plum flavours. Fruit, spice and subtle vanilla oak characters are well integrated, leading to a velvety finish of integrated tannins.

Today the Kalimna vineyard continues to play an integral part in Bin 28, although, like most of the Penfolds red wines, this wine is today a multi regional blend. Although oak maturation is an integral part of this wine’s character, very little of the

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Australia's winemaking history of less than two hundred years is brief by European measures though, like Europe, punctuated by periods of extreme success and difficult times. From the earliest winemaking days Penfolds has figured prominently and few would argue the importance of Penfolds' influence on Australia's winemaking psyche.

Without the influence of Penfolds the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer.

Penfolds' reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend. But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times.

If there is anything traditional about Penfolds, it is the practice of constantly reviewing the wines it already does well, and continuously evolving and refining styles as vineyards mature and access to ever older and more varied vineyard sites improves.
