PENFOLDS BIN 28 KALIMNA SHIRAZ 2015 is available to buy in increments of 1
Bin 28 offers a showcase of warm-climate Australian Shiraz – ripe, robust and generously flavoured. First made in 1959, Bin 28 is named after the famous Barossa Valley Kalimna Vineyard purchased by Penfolds in 1945 and from which the wine was originally sourced. Today, Bin 28 is a multi-region, multi-vineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented. 15 months in older American hogsheads.
95/100 Huon Hooke (2015 Vintage)
"Deep, dark, dense purple/red colour with a smoky, sooty, coal-dusty note to the earth and savoury nuances, overlying dark plum fruit. There's a touch of oak but it's subtle. The wine is intense and fleshy, full and soft, with high extract and almost chewy texture. Tar and bitumen, soot and coal dust, a very typical Bin 28 and very good. The finish is extremely long. This will be a top vintage in maturity. (McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Padthaway, Wrattonbully, Robe. No new oak.)"
94/100 Andrew Caillard MW (2015 Vintage)
"Medium deep crimson. Intense dark cherry, blackberry aromas with dark chocolate notes. Expansive and saturated with dense dark cherry, blackberry, mulberry, cassis fruits, fine dense persistent chocolaty tannins, savoury roasted walnut oak complexity and integrated mineral acidity. Finishes cedary firm, juicy and bouyant with fresh tensioned acidity. A "claret" style with lovely generosity and line. Terrific value wine. 12 months in seasoned American oak hogsheads.

91/100 Decanter UK, September 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Though it bears the Kalimna name, this is a multi-regional blend from the McLaren Vale, the Barossa Valley, Padthaway, Wrattonbully and Robe. It’s also a cracking example of warm climate Shiraz, with deeply saturated colour and a vanilla and coffee bean nose. Plush and sleek, this has a fine line of acidity amid punchy dark cherry fruit and savoury tapenade, with a lick of creosote on the finish. The tannins are sweet and generous, giving a languid glycerol texture. Good length, nice drop."
