Penfolds Bin 138 GSM 2015 Barossa Valley

64% Shiraz, 21% Grenache and 15% Mataro with 12 months in seasoned American oak hogsheads 

"Nose: A varietal aromatic chromatogram dissemination: Mataro - manifested via impressions of charcuterie and grilled/charred/smokey meats. Grenache - a whiff of florals (albeit less than usual for Bin 138?), blackberry pastille, fruit drops. Shiraz - moist ham hock and a spray of cedar and spice. Integrated, traditional … or as overheard: “a good, old-fashioned Barossa Valley ‘Dry Red’ style”. Palate:  Unashamedly ‘dry-reddish’.  A ferric, rust earthiness coupled with an assortment of fruits – dates, fresh figs and prosciutto/melon. Rounded, with minimal oak impact - as expected. Texture? Within the context of tannins/acidity/extract - ‘slippery’ rather than blocky, grippy." Peter Gago Winemaker 

"Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 GSM Bin 138 offers up notions of kirsch, dried mulberries and Chinese five spice with wafts of lavender and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has plush tannins and tons of spicy fruit, finishing with lingering pepper and cinnamon notes." 91/100 Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Bin 138 draws its inspiration from the wines of Southern Rhône, where Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro (Mourvèdre) are blended in varying proportions to create full-bodied wines possessing rich and heady perfume. Each year fruit for Bin 138 is sourced from old Barossa Valley vines (some more than 100 years old) and then matured for 12 to 15 months in seasoned oak hogsheads to allow the different varietals to shine through. Bin 138 is defined by its distinctive plum, raspberry pastille and underlying spicy notes. The first vintage release of this varietal blend was the 1992, labelled ‘Old Vine Barossa Valley’ – it was then elevated to Bin status for the 1998 vintage.
