Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2016

The trademarked one. From the McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Padthaway, Upper Adelaide and Wrattonbully regions. It spends 12 months in American oak, none of it new.

It’s mandated at Penfolds releases that at some point the word spotless must be employed. Here it is. A spotless impression of plum jam, creamy-vanilla whipped over the top, spice notes thrown in to give the party some variety. This wine takes freshness, the Penfolds house style, big company resources, gut-busting volume and good old fashioned attention-to-detail and somehow spits out the perfect consumer-friendly red wine. This is modern Australia in a bottle, in the way it presents fresh berried fruit, history cuddled within. It’s a pitch perfect Bin 28. It sits on the warmer, boozier, jammier end of what we expect from this label, so be warned, but volume of fruit and that creamy smoothness.
