Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2013
Bin 28 offers a showcase of 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, multi-vineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented. Winter rainfall was lower than the long-term average for most parts of South Australia. This pattern carried into spring in regions such as McLaren Vale, before rainfall in December replenished soil moisture and a fast and even veraison ensued. Mild daytime temperatures and cool evenings across most of the ripening period allowed impressive flavour development. Warm, dry conditions continued throughout harvest with fruit picked in optimal condition across each vineyard. Smaller berry and bunch sizes were noticeable in most regions. This, coupled with favourable weather conditions, induced great results for traditional quality markers – colour, tannin profile, fruit concentration and flavour depth. Winery notes
