Bin 2 Shiraz Mataro 2016 Cork Bottle

The Penfolds Collection

Bin 2 设拉子玛塔罗 2016年

Bin 2 在 1960 年开始首次发布,1970 年代因白葡萄酒盛极一时而暂停酿造。尽管采用盛产于隆河谷的设拉子,却享有“澳大利亚勃艮 第”的雅号 —— 酒体厚度中等,口感柔润。Bin 2 采用设拉子与玛塔罗混酿,在澳大利亚餐酒当中,这是比较罕见的葡萄组合。玛塔 罗有多个名字,包括穆维多与莫纳斯特雷尔。19 世纪 30 年代,玛塔罗被引进澳大利亚培植,从此落地生根,广泛种植于巴罗萨山谷, 有时候用于葡萄酒酿造,以其混酿品质、复杂程度与紧致口感而得到酿酒师的青睐。近年,隆河谷的传统葡萄品种和混酿酒颇受欢迎, 人们对 Bin 2 的兴趣也与之俱增。

When To Drink

Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Peak drinking window now - 2024. 

Taste Description

Colour
Bright crimson.

Nose
Savoury, rather than fruity … albeit raspberry, pomegranate and satsuma plum aromatics do make their presence felt!
At this youthful stage, meaty pan scrapings laced with cardamom and a myriad of other spices suggest a blend sourced from more than one site, more than one variety.
A hint of dusty oak … but only a hint!

Palate
Meshed and well-integrated shiraz and mataro fruits, brimming with flavours of cured meats - notably venison, pistachio terrine.
Tannins and acidity draw out finish – these rounded tannins couple effortlessly with remnants of reluctant grainy oak.
This feathery tail flares out on the finish – no doubt aided and abetted by a crunchy and assertive mataro 15% blend shareholding.

Winemaker Quotes

“Not just another shiraz derivative. A time-proven Penfolds ‘Dry-Red’ style harking back well to the sixties
(not the 1860’s!).”

“Little doubting this wine’s penchant for food … and restaurant tables! Or, a table at home with family and friends.”

- Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker

Vintage Conditions

Autumn and winter were dry and cool across South Australia. Record-low rainfall prevailed through September to March. The start of the growing season was slightly delayed in the Barossa Valley and other warmer regions. Warm conditions prevailed in the early part of the summer allowing vines to develop healthy canopies and good bunch set.

Some late rain in January and early February was a welcome relief. Temperatures in spring and early summer were above the long-term average, resulting in an early harvest for shiraz. Cooler conditions followed from mid-February which suited the later ripening mataro. Grapes across all the main growing regions were able to ripen evenly and develop desirable flavours.

History

Bin 2 was first released in 1960, yet was discontinued in Australia in the 1970s at the height of the white wine boom.

The original Bin 2 was an ‘Australian Burgundy’ style (despite its Rhône varieties) – typically a soft, medium-bodied wine based on Shiraz. 

The Bin 2 blend of Shiraz and Mataro is still relatively uncommon in Australian table wines. Also known as Monastrell or Mourvèdre, Mataro was introduced to Australia in the 1830s. Sometimes used in fortified wine production, this grape is widely planted in the Barossa Valley. It is greatly valued by winemakers for its blending attributes, adding complexity and palate grip.
