Taste Description

Taste Description

2018 Bin 28 Shiraz

Colour

Deep dark cherry-red.

Nose

Initially, plummy fruits meshed with sweet spices (predominantly cinnamon), almond. And then a pause to imbibe the aromatic atmospherics of a patisserie:

Crème anglaise, cannoli with vanilla custard ... and classic bourbon vanilla at that!

A croquembouche’s (profiterole) hazelnut brittle.

Grated chocolate – both white and dark.

Fresh, awakening.

Palate

Medium-bodied.

Raspberry/chocolate flavours with a sprinkling of spice and cola.

Symptoms: Fleshy, and an almost glycerolic texture; bulbous/expansive palate profile.

Diagnosis: Tannins – integrated/embedded – supportive, not standing apart.

Oak – no obtrusive flavours to speak of ... yet all the benefits of a calm maturation is seasoned hogsheads.

Acidity – in tune with the wine’s weight and structure.

Cure: Rest in bottle for a year or two. Needs time.

Vintage conditions

2018 Vintage

South Australia’s viticultural regions experienced relatively dry conditions, and near long-term winter/spring temperatures during vine dormancy and at the beginning of the growing season. After a racing start, a short spell of cooler weather in early November slowed down grapevine development. Warm and sunny weather prevailed throughout most of spring, providing optimal conditions for flowering and fruit-set. Summer was warm, Barossa Valley experienced 22 days of temperature greater than 35°C while McLaren Vale experienced 17 days of temperature greater than 35°C – with a maximum of 42.1°C on January 18th. Padthaway, Robe and Wrattonbully also had a warm, dry growing season by regional standards. Late flowering and the delayed onset of veraison throughout the south-east slowed harvest by a few weeks. The warm and dry weather carried into autumn, setting up an Indian summer with favourable conditions for ripening grapes.

The Bin 28 Story

First produced in 1959, Bin 28 is Penfolds earliest Bin-range wine. The first releases were single-vineyard wines made from the renowned Kalimna Vineyard in the Barossa Valley. Bin 28 was first made while Grange was still being made in secrecy.
