Bin 138 draws its inspiration from the wines of Southern Rhône, where shiraz, grenache and mataro (mourvèdre) are blended in varying proportions to create full-bodied wines possessing rich and heady perfume. Each year fruit for Bin 138 is sourced from old Barossa Valley vines (some more than 100 years old) and then matured for 12 to 15 months in seasoned oak hogsheads to allow the different varietals to shine through. The first vintage release of this varietal blend was the 1992, labelled ‘Old Vine Barossa Valley’ – it was then elevated to Bin status with the 1998 vintage.

Expert Reviews

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

Aged in older oak, the 2018 Bin 138 Shiraz-Grenache-Mataro has benefited from a superb Barossa vintage, bursting with raspberries, strawberries and cherries. Ripe, round and seductive, yet with enough stuffing to age 5-7 years (and perhaps more), this full-bodied, supple blend of 68% Shiraz, 22% Grenache and 10% Mataro is one of the values in the Penfolds stable this year, finishing with hints of mint and dark chocolate.

Winery Tasting Notes

COLOUR

Bright garnet red

NOSE

Raspberry-leaf and pastille fruits (blackberry) jostle to the fore.

Barossa boot polish high-notes arise – ever so discretely!

Scents of delightfully appealing, almost pungent salty prosciutto/cassoulet/beef ragu/osso buco ... stock(s)?

A quince jelly and inky-berried aromatic sign-off at this early stage of bottle maturation. More to be revealed over time

PALATE

Juicy, dense and more-ish - a sophisticated varietal and regional matrix unfolds, stamped with Barossa integrity.

But, what from what? Best guess: ironstone – from shiraz and a continuum of fresh red and dark berried fruits from its grenache and mataro stablemates.

Super-fine tannins permeate across the palate, no doubt contributed by all three varieties. Background oak ever so distant.

Lingers.

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.
