2018 Bin 51 Riesling

2018 Bin 51 Riesling

The Penfolds Collection

2018 Bin 51 Riesling

Bin 51 captures many of the attributes of the Eden Valley locale. The region’s high altitude and cool climate induces riesling with great finesse and elegance with a capacity for long-term cellaring. South Australia has gained worldwide recognition for producing world-class riesling and Eden Valley always features. In their youth, the wines possess scented floral and citrus aromas, with a mineral edge and marked natural acidity, contributing significantly to the palate texture and flavour. The evolution of Penfolds Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling opens another chapter in a long history of Penfolds involvement in winemaking from this variety.

Praise to the way these rieslings develop over time. By law they shouldn’t be released until after five years’ bottle age.”

Taste Description

Taste Description

2018 Bin 51 Riesling

Colour

Light lime green.

Nose

All regional riesling markers on display. An array of florals – white spring flowers (jonquil), and hints of fresh lime. Crushed mixed-stone gravel … not quite at talc stage. Yet. Aromatically extols an undeniable purity, minerality and freshness!

Palate

Very lime – citrus driven palate augmented by just ripe Granny Smith apple, cucumber granita and traces of juniper berry. A distinct chalky acid presence noted, yet ideally balanced so as not to intrude or distract. Admittedly a wishful second guess, but no reason to suspect why this palate shouldn’t remain intact over the next decade or three! Imminently drinkable.

Vintage conditions

2018 Vintage

Above average winter rainfall in Eden Valley provided good soil moisture profiles leading into spring. Drier conditions then prevailed from September through to April which was 22% down on the long-term average. Spring provided ideal conditions for flowering and fruit set while the growing season experienced temperatures above the long-term average, with twelve summer days recorded above 35°C. Healthy canopies shielded the grapes from adversity and with careful use of supplementary irrigation the grapes were able to ripen evenly across blocks. The 2018 vintage quality was exceptional, with lovely varietal flavour and natural acidity.
