Overview

Bin 28 offers a showcase of warm-climate Australian Shiraz – ripe, robust and generously flavoured. First made in 1959, Bin 28 is named after the famous Barossa Valley Kalimna Vineyard purchased by Penfolds in 1945 and from which the wine was originally sourced. Today, Bin 28 is a multi-region, multi-vineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Dark deep red.

Nose

Exotic. A debut of camphor, lanolin, cold lamb, parsnip/vegetable stock.

Courted by an ascent of vanilla sponge / teacake and rocky-road marshmallow.

Followed by wafts of coffee ground spices and biscuity/wafery hazelnut.

Palate

Vibrant, fresh and lively.

Long, elongated tannins – sleek, slick and slender!

Dark black-cherry fruit flavours, generous and more-ish! (And just why can’t we say Cherry Ripe!)

Succulent; neither alcohol nor oak intrude. Unobtrusive acidity will ensure cellarability, should it (hopefully) be pursued.

Peak drinking now - 2032. Drinking well now, but will improve with time.

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.
