The inaugural 2012 Penfolds Bin 23 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir's name is derived from maturation Cellar 23 at Magill Estate. Bin 23 Pinot Noir is a bold, new addition to the Bin collection and promises to be a dynamic member of the Bin family - reflecting its evolving style, regional definition and the complexities of the many & varied clones of Pinot Noir.
The relationship between Penfolds and the cool climate, high altitude Adelaide Hills wine region continues to grow from strength-to-strength with the addition of Penfolds Bin 23 Pinot Noir, after the success and development of the Cellar Reserve Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir.
Like the Cellar Reserve, Bin 23 is cold-soaked, naturally fermented and goes through just one racking pre-bottling - off gross lees (Free-run only - no pressings included). The wine isn't fined, but it is filtered.
