Penfolds Shiraz Mourvedre Grenache Bin 138 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Ve vínu Bin 138 je mnohem více znát ovoce než v ostatních vínách řady Bin. Víno je bohaté se zemitým náznakem. S věkem je víno vyzrálejší. Doporučujeme k jehněčímu či sýrům. Alkohol: 14,5 %

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.

Editorial Reviews for Penfolds Shiraz Mourvedre Grenache Bin 138

Deep crimson in color, this is a rich, musky wine with dense, almost chalky dry tannins. At the beginning there is a hint of violets, followed by a lot of ripe black fruit (blackberry, cassis and a little black plum) flavors, a few dark chocolate notes and a long savory finish. This wine is very drinkable right now, however I believe the tannin structure will soften and the wine will develop another layer of suppleness in a few years’ time.

I'm generally a big fan of both Penfold's wines and Grenache-based blends, but this was sadly disappointing. We drank it alongside a bottle of Rioja from the same year with the same price tag - the rioja won hands-down.

Ein Früchtebouquet mit Aromen von Rharbarber, Granatapfel und roten Beeren, unterlegt von exotischer Würze, Muskat, weissem Pfeffer und etwas Lakritze. Der Gaumen ist mittelkräftig, dennoch gefüllt mit süsslichen Fruchtaromen von Himbeeren und Cranberry, später kommt weisse Schokolade mit einem Hauch Vanille zum Vorschein. Insgesamt ein Wein voller Harmonie mit perfekt eingebundenen, saftigen Tanninen. Der 2011er Bin 138 ist im Gegensatz zu den Vorjahrgängen besonders Fruchtbetont, das Holz tritt in den Hintergrund.

Der Mischsatz von 55% Shiraz, 25% Grenache und 20% Mourvèdre variiert leicht von Jahr zu Jahr. Ausgebaut wird der Bin 138 in amerikanischer Eiche während 16 Monaten. Ein toller Wein, der beweist, dass ein schöner Blend mehr ist als nur die Summe seiner Teile.

WA 90pts. - According to the Wine Advocate: The Bin 138 Grenache (64%)-Mourvedre (21%)-Shiraz (15%) was aged for 15 months in 5 year old hogsheads and blended just prior to bottling. Dark ruby-colored, it gives up aromas of underbrush, spice box, quince, pomegranate, and black cherry. On the palate it reveals already complex flavors including chocolate-covered cherries and wild raspberry. Elegantly styled, smooth textured, and ripe, it is likely to evolve for several years and drink well through 2019.

Ein Wein mit feinem leichten Holzcharakter. Sehr eleganter, stilvoller Blend mit einem feinen Bouquet. Kräftiger, frischer Körper, etwas Leder-Aromen. Den Bin 138 prägt einen noch entwickelnden Charakter, der durch Lagerung zunehmend an Komplexität gewinnt.

The Barossa was planted extensively to Shiraz, Mourvedre and Grenache by the early settlers. In the 1950s Penfolds started experimenting with blending Shiraz and the robust grape variety Mourvedre. Sourced from old, low-yielding Barossa Valley vines,
