Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz Barossa Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This 2010 Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz is a great example of warm-climate Australian Shiraz. Bin 28 is a multi-region, multivineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley in Australia always well represented giving this wine rich black berry flavors with hints of floral notes and lush round tannins that make this an irresistible full body red wine. "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz presents lovely, expressive blueberry, black raspberry and black cherries notes highlighted by violets, toast, cinnamon stick and touch of mulberries. Full-bodied and rich, the concentrated fruit is framed by medium levels of rounded tannins, crisp acid and a long, classically-styled finish. *92 points*" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  Tired of boring old wines from Australia? No? Then you can probably thank Penfolds Wines. Penfolds, founded in 1844 by Mary and Dr. Penfold (Mary gets top billing since she took care of most of the early management and winemaking responsibilities), has completely revolutionized not only its own product lines throughout the years, but also many wines in Australia as a whole.

  Tired of boring old wines from Australia? No? Then you can probably thank Penfolds Wines. Penfolds, founded in 1844 by Mary and Dr. Penfold (Mary gets top billing since she took care of most of the early management and winemaking responsibilities), has completely revolutionized not only its own product lines throughout the years, but also many wines in Australia as a whole. The wine produced by Penfolds was originally prescribed as tonic wines for anaemic patients, with the wine made from Grenache. By 1870, with 60 acres under vine, they were producing many more wines. In the 1920s and 1930s, Penfolds was known for its fortified wine, like many other wineries in the area. 1943 marked the start of a massive expansion for Penfolds Winery, with first the acquisition of Auldana Vineyard and its winery, and then the purchase of Kalimna Vineyard in 1945. By the end of the decade, they owned vineyards in McLaren Vale, Griffith, the Hunter Valley, and Minchinbury. Around the same time, winemaker Max Schubert returned from oversees with a completely new vision for the future of the winery. In the 50s, he started experimenting with the red wine he called Grange, which is a mix of primarily Shiraz and a little Cabernet Sauvignon, and by the 1960s the wine had spread across the Australian wine industry. Not wanting to stop with merely one of the most successful wine projects in the history of Australia, Penfolds Wines started the “White Grange” project in the 1990s, leading to the immensely popular and publicized release of the Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay. Peter Gago became their Chief Winemaker in 2002, and he, along with three winemakers in charge of red wine and one in charge of white, continue the tradition of experimentation and evolution.

100% shiraz aged for 12-months in used American oak hogsheads (300L). Deep inky core fades to a hazy purple rim. Intense aromas of blackberry jam cassis and vanilla extract. The palate is full of warm fruit including baked plum fruitcake and black cherry with a rich texture and fine grained tannins that are well integrated. The acidity sneaks up at the end carrying through the finish with good length. Tasty right now with a bit of air this will benefit from a year or two in the cellar or a healthy decant. Drink 2014-2024. Ryan Moses.

Firm in texture with mildly gritty tannins around focused tobacco basalt and black olive-accented blackberry flavors persisting into the slightly translucent finish. Best from 2015 through 2020.

Opaque purple from core to rim. The dense inky 2010 Kalimna Shiraz from Penfolds features a ripe nose alive with aromas of mint milk chocolate juicy black cherry woodspice and a touch of eucalyptus. Soft and velvety on entry this glides over the palate with ripe fruit ample acidity and a good complex mouthfeel. Finishes clean with fine soft tannins. Will impress those looking for a clean big and bold style. Drinking perfect now this will also gain complexity and verve with a year or

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz presents lovely, expressive blueberry, black raspberry and black cherries notes highlighted by violets, toast, cinnamon stick and touch of mulberries. Full-bodied and rich, the concentrated fruit is framed by medium levels of rounded tannins, crisp acid and a long, classically-styled finish. Approachable now, it will drink to 2020+.

Das kräftige Shiraz-Bouquet wurde perfekt mit dem mittelschweren Körper vereint. Gereift in amerikanischen Eichenbarriques während 18 Monaten, zeigt der Wein einen intensiven, reifen Beerencharakter mit Andeutungen von Pfeffer und rauchiger Eiche. Kalimna Bin 28, Shiraz, ist trinkbereit, sobald er in die Flaschen abgezogen ist, hat aber auch das Potential, sich während Jahren zu entwickeln. Bereits mehrfach wurde der Bin 28, Shiraz, an der «International Wine Challenge in London» zum Rotwein des Jahres gekrönt!

Dark purple. A pungent bouquet displays scents of ripe blackberry and cassis vanilla floral pastilles clove and woodsmoke. Deep supple and sweet offering black and blue fruit flavors accented by black pepper and licorice. Broad rich and lively with fine-grained tannins that give focus and grip to the finish. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The earliest releases of Bin 28 were single-vineyard wines, produced from grapes grown on the famous Kalimna vineyard at the northern end of the Barossa Valley.
