Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"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.

A black Kalamata olive tapenade as a first impression, beneath an overlay of camphor and tobacco. How to say this politely? Boot polish, bitumen, cola, granite … darkened style/varietal base notes. Yet blackberry conserve and sour cherry fill the (fruity) treble register. Scents of cut straw/steel cut oats fill any aromatic chord gaps. 

The palate is full-bodied. Substantial. Framboise des bois (raspberry) with pips/vinegar – coulis or apothecary? Meat? Closest association noted – raw/rare venison. Not to deny the welcomed presence of chocolate torte and mocha flavours. A “cloaked” continuum of tannins that linger and reverberate with the discipline of a vinous pendulum. Finishes intact with a flourish of dusty graphite (input of oak?) and balanced acidity."


92/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, October 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"The trademarked one. From the McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Padthaway, Upper Adelaide and Wrattonbully regions. It spends 12 months in American oak, none of it new.

It’s mandated at Penfolds releases that at some point the word spotless must be employed. Here it is. A spotless impression of plum jam, creamy-vanilla whipped over the top, spice notes thrown in to give the party some variety. This wine takes freshness, the Penfolds house style, big company resources, gut-busting volume and good old fashioned attention-to-detail and somehow spits out the perfect consumer-friendly red wine. This is modern Australia in a bottle, in the way it presents fresh berried fruit, history cuddled within. It’s a pitch perfect Bin 28. It sits on the warmer, boozier, jammier end of what we expect from this label, so be warned, but volume of fruit and that creamy smoothness."
