Penfold's Bin 28 Shiraz

Tasting Notes

COLOUR Black core, garnet rim NOSE A classic Penfolds aromatic profile, an exemplar of House Style. Very generous and lifted aromatics. Sweet and savoury notes compete for attention. Interestingly, the savoury characters narrowly win the arm wrestle. A fascinating concoction of umami notes: roast meat pan-scrapings, dark soy sauce, sopressa salami. Chinese char sui pork and five spiced quail. Dried herbs: rosemary/oregano. There is an abundance of dark, brooding shiraz fruit with ripe plums and blackberries to the fore. Floral notes of potpourri and violets provide lift. Dry fermented black tea, ground allspice and toasted ajwain seeds provide an exotic allure. PALATE As advertised! Full-bodied, rich and generous. Lovely mocha, chocolate, espresso flavours. The confectioner provides black jellybean, licorice, chocolate truffles and rum and raisin. Very generous fruits fill an ample, plush mid-palate. A trip to the German cake shop: black forest cake, strudel, crème anglaise. Toasted fennel seeds and fresh tarragon. The acidity is juicy and energetic. Bold, attentive, structural graphite-like tannins hold the package together. The oak is completely absorbed, allowing the fruit to shine. The finish is long and fine, with a taught shale, mineral-like impression that lingers forever.
