Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

Dense and vibrant red, bordering a purple core.

Aroma

Dark spices and tobacco intertwine with generous blackberry and blueberry fruits. Complex notes of cedar, clove and charcuterie abound, creating an impressive aromatic Shiraz offering.

Palate

Defined, concentrated and tight, very much in keeping with the Bin 128 style. Wild raspberry fruit intensity is laced with nutmeg and clove spices, with an appealing, interwoven tannin and oak structure supporting the overall palate and adding to a long, persistent finish. A ‘warm vintage’ interpretation of this classic wine style, allowing extended cellaring potential, if desired.

Wine Background

Launched in 1962, Penfolds Bin 128 is a regional wine that reflects the unique climate and growing conditions of South Australia’s Coonawarra district and the elegant style of cool-climate Shiraz. From the 1980 vintage, French oak replaced American, highlighting the pepper-and-spice characteristics that define this style. Since the mid-1980s, greater attention has been paid to fruit ripeness, resulting in a wine that is fuller in style and structure.

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.
