2016 Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz, Penfolds, South Australia

Lovely nose, brambly and good power, juicy and fresh, and mineral. Remarkable freshness for a Barossa Shiraz. Cool fruit, and lovely tension - plums and balsamic, and just the right level of lift on the finish. Very well made. A wine to buy.

2016 Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz, Penfolds, South Australia

TASTING NOTES

Unlike the Kalimna Shiraz, which is a multiregional blend, the 2016 Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz comes from that specific subregion of the Barossa Valley. It's a clear step up and a lovely wine, with bold berry fruit flavors framed by cedar and vanilla. It's full-bodied and plush, with that generous Barossa Valley character married to the dense Penfolds house style. Not exported to the U.S.
