Vintage Conditions

Above-average winter and spring rainfall offered the vines in Eden Valley healthy soil moisture profiles for the growing season. Cool days and cooler nights slowed vine growth in early spring with temperatures warming in October. A mild and mostly dry start to summer was followed by two significant rain events which increased frost risk, however the vineyards escaped any damage.

The lower than average temperatures and abundant rainfall during the growing season and veraison produced a vintage that challenged both winemakers and viticulturists alike. Rainfall slowed in early autumn with a high heat cycle quickly following. Moving into March, mild days slowed the ripening with cool nights and warm days persisting until harvest.


Bin 51 was created in the 1990s as part of the evolving Penfolds white wine development program.  The first vintage in 1999 was labelled Eden Valley Reserve Bin Riesling. 

The evolution of Penfolds Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling opens another chapter in a long history of Penfolds involvement in winemaking from this variety.
