Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz 2014 from Penfolds : a generous Australian red wine
A red wine made with Shiraz, the Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz from Penfolds comes from vineyards in several regions (Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, Wrattonbully, Port Lincoln, Clare Valley). The ageing of the wine is carried out for 12 months in American hogsheads oak barrels.
At tasting, the Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz 2014 from Penfolds presents a dark purple colour. The nose develops fragrances of black bean sauce that mingle with notes of anise, ginger, coffee beans and mocha. Upon aeration, one may detect notes of smoked meat. On the palate, the wine offers a nice volume and reveals itself to be generous. The wine also offers tasty touches of purple fruit (plums, black berries), before displaying creamy eggplant flavours. The tannins are very soft and offer a texture that is almost velvety.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Shiraz Kalimna Bin 28 is open for business with a gorgeous nose yielding tons of spice box and berry preserves notes, plus suggestions of licorice and chocolate box. It is soft and supple on entry in the mouth with rounded tannins, rich fruit and a long, spicy finish.
