Penfolds Bin 138 GSM
Description: Winemaker's Notes
The 2012 Bin 138 GSM is a dense magenta color. In no way bashful, the aromatics need little encouragement to leap from glass– with or without a swirl! The nose offers aromas of all the reds: raspberry, red licorice, dark red berried-fruits, and red jelly-bean. The wine is savory, and dare one say, Rhonish. Structurally verging on lush/viscous during this youthful developmental phase. It has yet to completely unfurl – there is a suggestion of kirsch, maraschino, and fruitcake mix. On the palate, white chocolate and mocha flavors/"powderiness" merge with softened rounded tannins.
Critical Acclaim
JH 94pts
Australian Wine Companion - "A vintage well suited to this blend of 66/23/11% shiraz/grenache/mataro, creating a wine of even flow, lively acid balance and firm, finely textured tannin support. Violet fragrance and well-defined berry fruits are layered with pepper and spice, confirming a restrained, poised and ageworthy Bin 138, set to go down among the greats."
