BIN 28

Barossa Valley, South Australia

Since 1844, Penfolds has played a pivotal role in the evolution of winemaking with a history and heritage that profoundly reflects Australia’s journey from colonial settlement for the poor and unwanted to the modern country it is today.
When you think of Australia, you think Shiraz; and when you think of Shiraz, you think Penfolds.  

93 PointsRobert Parker The Wine Advocate

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Shiraz Kalimna Bin 28 has nose of crushed black currants and blueberries with subtle notes of licorice, tar, roses and tapenade. Medium to full-bodied, opulent and densely packed with black fruits and savory layers, it has a solid frame of rounded tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long."

91 PointsThe Wine Spectator

"Toasted herb, crushed rock and dried violet aromas are precise, with plenty of focus to the laser beam of juicy red fruit flavors. Fresh earth, crushed pine needle and spice notes linger on the finish, where the tannins firm up. Drink now through 2027.

Our Thoughts.........

 Healthy and deep color, it has a rich bouquet with licorice, spice, dark chocolate and blackberry all in unison. On the palate, it is lively with elongated tannins and notes of dark black cherry fruit.  Good stuff indeed, with a hint of savory/earthy on the very long, balanced finish. Beautiful!

A Brief History of Penfolds....

Penfolds is steeped in a unique culture handed down by generations of winemakers. It all began in 1844 with Dr Christopher and Mary Penfold, who established a vineyard at Magill Estate near Adelaide. There are three historic eras of winemaking; the colonial, the empire, the dynastic periods. The first Penfolds wines, from the 19th century, were made from newly established vineyards around Adelaide and made for the enjoyment and health of South Australia's first settlers. During the empire period (1900-1945), Penfolds expanded its vineyards and became a household name across Australia.

It exported table and fortified wines to the British Empire and it's outposts. After a visit to France in 1950 Penfolds chief winemaker Max Schubert dreamed of making wines that would capture the imagination of wine drinkers all over the world. The birth of the iconic Penfolds Grange in 1951 lead to a remarkable dynasty of wines that would bring Penfolds wines worldwide recognition for their signature style, consistency and longevity.
