Bin 170 卡琳娜设拉子 2010

1973年,Penfolds首次酿造 Bin 170,材料均选自巴罗萨谷中的19世纪卡琳娜葡萄园。葡萄品种为100%设拉子,均采自3C区,此区所产的尊贵批次常常被添加入葛兰许中。Penfolds酿酒师在2010年让3C区保持独立,因为认识到这一园区具有重塑Penfolds经典的潜力。

 

继续窖藏

Will develop and evolve for many decades with careful cellaring. Peak drinking window now - 2055 (well past Penfolds 200th anniversary).

产年历史

In 1973, Penfolds crafted an experimental Bin 170 sourced entirely from the nineteenth-century Kalimna Vineyard in the Barossa Valley. 100% Shiraz, all of the grapes were picked from Block 3C – a venerated parcel that is often included in the Grange blend.

In 2010, the Penfolds winemakers kept Block 3C separate, realising they had the potential to re-create a Penfolds classic.

Taste Description

Colour
A black core with a barely visible purple rim.

Nose
Classic Kalimna, with trademark red fruits and a familial old-worldliness.
Via: juniper and blackberry fruits, and raspberry stick and red liquorice flavourings.
And: a carbon black ‘sumpiness’/quince paste amalgam laced with a ferric/formic piquant lift.
Also: possibly oak-induced, barrel-fermented eugenol/pink peppercorn/fresh green-tobacco aromatics.

Palate
Viscous, Velvety, Voluminous. (Editors note: the BOLD V is deliberate) 
A ‘tannin tsunami’… riding a ripe and even wave across the palate.
Oak totally absorbed, allowing blueberry fruits and a black-pudding textural imprint to stake ownership during this phase.
An energetic tension impatiently awaiting to be… unleashed, tamed?!
Commands attention, requests little, appreciates your patience.

情况说明

Origin: Kalimna Vineyard Block 3C, Barossa Valley, South Australia.

Maturation: 16 months in French oak hogsheads (55% new, 45% 1-y.o.).

Variety: Shiraz.

Vintage Conditions

Representative of the region, vines on the Barossa Valley floor and north-western regions arguably benefited from the best conditions seen within this decade. Peter Gago has often declared this as “the Millennium vintage that arrived a decade late.” After above-average winter rains filled dams to capacity and onset of an early but welcome spring, budburst brought the region to life in August.

Consistent and slower growth continued and overlaid flowering and fruit set. Not immune to the small November heatwave, some shatter and poor set was observed however Shiraz proved to be quite resilient. December temperatures were much cooler, offering vines ideal growing conditions leading to veraison in early January. Enduring warmth, minus the temperature spikes of recent vintages resulted in exceptional colour development, concentrated flavour development, accumulating tannins that reached maturity.
