Food Pairings for Penfolds Bin 28
'In a winemaking tradition spanning 160 years Penfolds has set the benchmark for Australian wines' Founded in 1844 by the Penfold family at Magill Estate in Adelaide, Penfolds is synonymous with South Australia and multi-regional blending. Regions include the Barossa, Clare and EdenValleys, McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Padthaway, Robe and Tumbarumba (New South Wales). Through multi-regional blending, Penfolds creates wines of consistently exceptional quality. They are most famous for our red wines, which range in style from the mighty Penfolds Grange to the elegant Penfolds St. Henri Shiraz. Penfolds lovers also know our white wines, including the flagship, Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay, and our fortifieds such as Penfolds Great Grandfather Port. Penfolds Bin 128 is one of the most distinctive reds in the Penfolds stable. Firstly, as a 'Coonawarra Shiraz', it is one of the few Penfolds reds that isn't a multi regional blend. It is also matured solely in French oak. French oak generally lends a wine understated, aromatic characters and is therefore a better choice with more subtly flavoured wines. Coonawarra typically produces zesty, spicy and supple Shiraz fruit that exhibits a richness of flavour and a mouth filling roundness on the palate. Bin 128 is true to this style. In 1981 the wine changed name from Bin 128 Claret to Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz.
