Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz
Description: Winemaker's Notes
Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz is a deep red color. Savory notes quickly hit the radar gravy/pan-juices, vegemite/soy. Fruits emit quickly thereafter, including notes of boysenberry, mulberry, and quince paste. Wafts of cocoa powder and a hint of vanillin entwine playfully beneath. Tanned (fresh) leather cautiously follows. A medium-bodied and balanced wine that is elegantly proportioned, yet with a firm underpinning. A familial trio of a dark-berried compote, boiled fruitcake mixture and fine chocolate powder to the varietal tune of Shiraz. "Binding" tannins add to length, reinforcing the extract/character/body of the wine.

Critical Acclaim
JH 94pts
Australian Wine Companion - "Sourced from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Langhorne Creek; matured for 12 months in used American hogsheads handed down from prior duties with Grange, Bin 389 and so forth. Healthy and deep colour, it has a rich bouquet with licorice, spice, dark chocolate and blackberry all in unison. Good stuff indeed, with the savoury/inky/graphite impact of the very long, balanced medium to fullbodied palate. This could well evolve into one of the great Bin 28s."
