(From 2011 Vintage) Penfolds Bin 28 is a showcase for warm-climate Australian Shiraz - ripe, robust and generously flavoured. First made in 1959, Bin 28 is named after the famous Barossa Valley Kalimna vineyard purchased by Penfolds in 1945 and from which the wine was originally sourced. Today, Bin 28 is a multi-region, multivineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented, providing a substantial proportion of the fruit for this vintage.
Probably shouldn't have waited until 2012 to drink this wine, but it held up pretty well. A little more "earthy" than it may have been if opened sooner.

Spicy, peppery- my favourite! One of our inaugural wines.
