Penfolds Cabernet Shiraz Bin 8 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Er zeigt eine ziegelrote Farbe mit tiefroten Nuancen. In der Nase zeigen sich Aromen von Kirsche und dunkler Schokolade. Im Gaumen weist der Wein eine grossartige Balance aus zwischen einer wunderbaren Fruchtigkeit und feinen Eichentönen. Ein würziger Wein mit hervorragend integrierten Tanninen und einem langen und fruchtigen Abgang.

  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.

The 2011 Bin 8 Cabernet Shiraz is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Shiraz that spends 10 months aging in oak comprised of 10% new American barrels and 5% new French barrels. Deep garnet-purple in color, the nose gives aromas of fresh black currant and blackberry, some red currant with undertones of charcoal, dried herbs and pepper with touches of mint. Medium to full-bodied, crisp and taut, it has medium levels of chewy tannins, decent fruit concentration but is a little bitter in the long finish. Drink it now to 2018.

Fresh and focused, lacking the density of some versions but offering pleasant blackberry and spice flavors that stay with you through the finish. Drink now through 2015.
