Penfolds Weine Bin 2 Shiraz Mourvèdre Penfolds 2009
This is a classic Barossa blend of 42% Shiraz, 30% Mourvedre and 28% Grenache. It is very much in keeping with the Penfold's 'house style' with plenty of bright fruit on the nose and initially on the palate followed by some more complex secondary flavours, fine tannins and liberal oak.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
External Reviews for Penfolds Weine Bin 2 Shiraz Mourvèdre Penfolds
Firm in texture, crisp and focused, offering a lively mouthful of peppery blueberry and cedar flavors that linger nicely on the deft finish. Drink now through 2015.
A combination of sweet aromas - ripe plum fruits, blackcurrants and licorice. Some freshly-tanned leather, a touch of cinnamon and clove spices. The palate has baked fruitcake flavors, with some ripe blackcurrant tones. Savory, meaty flavors combine with crisp natural acidity and defined tannins.
With its beginnings of ripe, spicy character, this Australian Shiraz gains complexity with the addition of Mourvegrave;dre and Grenache. A blend now more consistently smooth, oaky and softly tannic.

Despite the Mourvegrave;dre only comprising 26% of the blend, it plays a powerful role in this wine, giving horsey aromas of cassis and tree bark. Flavors of plum, leather and earth also speak of the Mourvegrave;dre component. The unique earthy nature of Mourvegrave;dre is showcased without the grape varietyrsquo;s frequently heavy tannins.

Tasting Notes - Deep crimson with purple hues. The nose is rich, ripe and very concentrated with aromas of plums, olives, figs, rhubarb and dark, steamed fruit pudding. This is a tightly structured wine with excellent length of flavor and a fresh, lingering acidity. Darker fruit flavors and notes of olive, licorice and fennel sit alongside background, nutty flavors of well-used, older oak. The finish shows some firm, gritty-type tannins.
