Penfolds Red in Class of Own Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2007

Chris Shanahan, The Canberra Times

We threw Bin 28 and Bin 407 into the tasting as sighters for the blue-chip range. Both held up well. There’s no new oak in Bin 28 these days and that’s not a bad thing. But it’s still in the big, ripe, warm-climate shiraz mould with the Penfolds thumbprint – robust tannins woven through the fruit, giving a meaty complexity. Upstaged in this line-up, but solid and thoroughly enjoyable.

Grape variety: Shiraz
Region: South Australia, including Langhorne Creek, Upper Adelaide, Barossa, McLaren Vale and Limestone Coast.
Maturation: 12 months in seasoned American oak (300 lt) and some in large old oak vats.
