Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz is a sub-regional expression that is unmistakably Penfolds in character. Conceived from the ancient soils of Marananga, which lie very close to the centre of the Barossa Valley floor – slightly to the North West, where warm dry conditions and rich red soil provide the backbone to some of the region’s best-known wines. Each release delivers a contemporary shiraz alternative, framed by a mix of oaks; French and American, old and new – crafted in the 'Penfolds way'.

Expert Reviews

95 Points - Joe Czerwinski, Published 23 July, 2020.

The raspberry and vanilla-scented 2018 Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz is a beauty. Aged in French and American hogsheads, it artfully marries fruit and oak, then blends in nuances of licorice, dusty earth and hints of black olives and roasted meat. Full-bodied and creamy textured, it's ripe while remaining fresh and lively, coming to a long, silky close. At half the price of RWT, it's a relative bargain, but alas, it lacks availability in the United States.

Winery Tasting Notes

COLOUR

Deep, dark red

NOSE

An instant formic lift, elevating a mix of African/Middle Eastern spices – cumin and dried fennel flirting with aromas akin to soaked dill-pickle juice.

Less Marananga blueberry and juniper notes detected than normal, yet so many other shiraz variants leap forward to entice ...

Intermittent wafts of just-cooked pound cake and a cumquat/apricot-preserve strudel – i.e. innocent fruits in tandem with other ‘niceties’!

Oak? A forensic audit may uncover some carefully hidden nutty and ginger notes derived from this source.

PALATE

A boysenberry/mulberry slurry, almost a coulis, with a smidgeon of cola/creamy soda flavours.

Prominent tannins augment and propel an impression of a svelte film of raspberry seeds/pips, to heighten textural appeal.

Supportive oak adds weight – contributing structurally yet hesitating to add to the flavour-pool.

An ironstone/ferrous (haemoglobin) impression noted on back-palate.

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.
