This is an elegant aromatic expression of Shiraz with fresh blueberry, plum and mint on the nose. The palate is rich and complex with vibrant black fruit, floral notes and a beautiful finish of toast and vanilla from the French Oak.
With each vintage release the cool climate Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz provides an interesting counterpoint to the more opulent and richly concentrated warm climate Bin 28 Shiraz. Bin 128 is sourced from the unique terra rossa soils of Coonawarra, a region that exemplifies the perfume, transparency and seductive nature of cool climate red table wines. Coonawarra has remained the sole source of shiraz fruit for Bin 128 since the inaugural release of the 1962 vintage.
In order to further enhance the regional qualities of Bin 128, the wine is matured in a mixture of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads, a method that was refined during the 1980’s when the transition was made from American to French oak.
“A cool climate offer in a warm year… a magical year for shiraz!”
- Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker
