Bin 8 赤霞珠设拉子 2015

源用 Penfolds 酒庄传统风格酿制的 Bin 8 赤霞珠设拉子,成熟、平衡的果实风味结合微妙的橡木气息造就了这款口感香醇柔润的佳酿。Bin 8 是为了应对备受全球媒体追捧的赤霞珠设拉子混酿的需求而酿造的。虽然 Penfolds Bin 系列的命名一向依据酒庄窖号而定,Bin 8 却是因为它在熟化时用的橡木桶来自Bin 128、Bin 28 及 Bin 389 系列,而以其共同号数“8”来命名。

Taste Description

Colour
Crimson core and vibrant purple highlights at the rim.

Nose
Cabernet hallmarks are more prominent than what the composition would suggest ... white pepper, blackberry leaf and punnets of fresh raspberries ascend.
Well seasoned carpaccio, brine and sea salt purity…? 
Red fruits and liquorice, from the Shiraz or the Cabernet? Source unknown!   
A quintessential Australian blend, yet still “modern” in identity.

Palate
Shiraz foundations emerge with generosity and vinous energy.  
A steely, graphite core and rhubarb succulence imprint.  
A defined and focussed structure emerges … a trait that is often mentioned across previous vintages of Bin 8 ... it is at home here!
At first the tannin structure is grainy, and becomes powder-like in texture upon sitting in the glass….  Hungarian paprika, pomegranate and berry coulis abound.
French and American oak each offer support … contributing to the spice spectrum, binding the palate and ensuring compliant tannins.

情况说明

Origin: Multi-regional blend, South Australia. From McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Padthaway, Wrattonbully and Robe.

Maturation: 12 months in French oak and American oak (9% new).

Variety: 80% Shiraz and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vintage Conditions

The 2016 South Australian vintage was consistently mild and dry. Winter rainfall and temperatures were significantly lower than the long-term average with Padthaway recording one of the driest years in over seven years.

From spring through to late summer, record low rainfall was documented with only late January and February providing some slight relief. A warm start to spring continued into early summer which sped up the grapevine growth after a sluggish start. After a quick start to harvest, a dip in temperature in late summer prolonged the ripening of the later varieties and provided strong development of varietal flavours. 

产年历史

Bin 8 Cabernet Shiraz was introduced in 2003 in response to an interest in Cabernet Shiraz blends. It is a classic Australian wine style that caught the attention of the international wine media.

Although Bin numbers were originally named after the original binning location after bottling, Bin 8 was given its number because it uses older oak previously used for Bin 128, Bin 28 and Bin 389 – with ‘8’ obviously providing the common thread.
