Wine Tasting NotesA vibrant and glistening, raspberry red. The nose shows an immediate, tell-tale cool climate waft of ground black pepper. Notes of sarsaparilla, cola, soy, dark fruits and a hint of bayleaf follow with a swirl of the glass. Cedary oak aromas provide a background, with the slightest suggestion of an aligned char. As enticing as the flavor mix of red liquorice, juniper and rhubarb may be, it is the mouthwatering acidity, coupled with the fine, grainy tannins that are the current palate feature. The Bin 128 is a medium bodied wine of impressive length and flavor persistence. Across five decades, this singleregion, French-oaked Shiraz from Coonawarra naturally displays more vintage variation than its stablemate, Bin 28. The vintage is true to style, and whats more, one of the stronger Bin 128s!
