Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2018

£34.00

There’s nothing quite as a warming as juicy Australian Shiraz at its finest. Robust and generous, Bin 28 was inspired by the Kalimna Vineyard in the Barossa Valley that Penfolds bought back in 1945. Now it’s made using grapes from Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Wrattonbully, Fleurieu, Robe, Mt Lofty Ranges, Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek. 2018 was, according to critic James Suckling who awarded it 94 points, “a strong vintage for warmer-climate Shiraz and this wine is certainly reaping the benefits.”

It reminds us of Chambord mixed with those black gummy sweets from your childhood that were shaped like little jellies. Then it evolves into something more umami, reminiscent of a spicy Asian mushroom dish, combined with blackberries, custard, praline, cola and toasted vanilla pod. Oh, what a treat, especially if served with a slow-cooked chilli.

Penfolds is certainly Australia’s, and possibly one of the world’s, most iconic wine producers. Established in 1844, it boasts an enviable history that most wineries in the Old World would give their right arm for. Most famous for its flagship wine, Penfolds Grange, which is the very definition of Australian fine wine and the 1955 vintage was even described by Wine Spectator as one of the “Wines of the Century”. Penfolds owe much of their success to Max Schubert, their winemaker who travelled to Europe after World War II and came back with all kinds of secrets. His innovative, often multi-regional, blends have become part of the DNA of Penfolds, and now the wines are the choice of connoisseurs and collectors all over the world.
