Behind Bin 2 Shiraz Mourvèdre

Peter Gago
Penfolds Chief Winemaker

"A medium-bodied, textbook example of a modern-era Penfolds Bin 2… over half a century after its genesis."

"Ideal by the glass… showy in youth, relaxed with bottle age."


VINTAGE CONDITIONS

Winter rainfall was lower than the long-term average for most parts of South Australia. Variable conditions continued through the period from October to December, merging to a mild summer, with a few short periods of heat. The mild daytime temperatures and cool evenings across most of the ripening period, allowed for impressive flavour development, without inflated baumes. Balanced canopies matched fruit load, providing even yet not too speedy ripening. Warm dry conditions continued throughout harvest with fruit picked in optimal condition. Smaller berry and bunch sizes were noticeable in most regions and this, coupled with favourable weather conditions, saw great results for some quality markers – colour, tannin profile, fruit concentration and flavour depth.
