Penfolds Bin 128 Shiraz, Coonawarra, South Australia 2017
100% Shiraz with 12 months in French oak hogsheads.
"The regional stamp of minty and leafy aromas is strong here, as is the stream of redder-toned berry flavors and a fine, long and linear spine of tannin. Drink over the next decade." 92/100 Nick Stock for JamesSuckling.com

Created in 1962, Penfolds Bin 128 is a regional wine that reflects the unique climate and growing conditions of South Australia’s Coonawarra district and the relatively elegant style of cool-climate Shiraz. From the 1980 vintage, French oak replaced American, highlighting the pepper, spice and floral characteristics that define this style. Since this time, greater attention to fruit flavour ripeness has structurally resulted in a more complete and complex wine style.
