The prestigious magazine, Wine Enthusiast, honoured Penfolds as their 2013 New World Winery of the Year, the Penfolds estate had already established itself as an icon of fine Australian wines at the beginning of the 20th century, thanks to Mary Penfold’s unparalleled determination. Indeed, the co-founder of the Penfolds estate put her heart and soul into making exceptional wines. Her lifelong work is reflected in the winery's success in establishing itself as a benchmark in Southern Australia. When Max Schubert became part of the Penfolds' story in the 1950s, he instilled the elegance of fine Bordeaux wines, that fascinated him greatly, into the estate's wines. Success shortly followed when the cellar master produced his famous Grange wines, which crossed Australian borders in order to win the hearts of wine lovers from all around the world.
Penfolds' 2019 Bin 28 Shiraz is an Australian wine that comes from several regions in South Australia: McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Padthaway, Wrattonbully. This diversity enriches the wines and provides an insight into a wide range of Australia’s finest wine regions.
Bin 28 from Penfolds beautifully showcases Australian Shiraz from warm climates: this wine is ripe, robust and very delicious. Its first vintage dates back to 1959.
The vinification and ageing
Following the harvest and the fermentation process, the wine is aged for 12 months in American oak demi-muids.
Dense, the colour is a beautiful cherry red.
This wine blends fruity fragrances (blackberries) with savoury notes of black olive tapenade and caramelised fig.
Perfectly balanced and sustained by a beautiful acidity, the palate will charm you with its aromas of dark chocolate and tobacco, harmoniously combined with notes of black fruit. Persistent, the palate reveals supple and refined tannins.
Penfolds’ Bin 28 Shiraz 2019 can be cellared until 2040 in order to reveal its full aromatic range.
