2014 Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz, Penfolds, South Australia

For a wine at this price point, this has a remarkably complex, intense, alluring nose. There is savouriness, with cured meats and mint, alongside store cupboard spice. The complexity follows on the palate, with mouthcoating, fine tannins offering the supporting role. This is surprisingly serious, and although delicious now, we have no doubt it will last for decades.

TASTING NOTES

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (October 2016)
90+/100
Penfolds

Few regions’ wine has been as influenced and defined by one producer as Australia has been by Penfolds. It was founded by an English doctor, Christopher Rawson Penfold, in 1844, a physician who used his port-like wines as medication to his patients’ delight. Nowadays consistency and longevity run throughout their impressive range: from their fortified wines to the affordable bin series, their delicious Chardonnays to the legendary, collectable and sought after Grange, Australia’s finest wine.
