PENFOLDS BIN 389 CABERNET SHIRAZ 2016

$110.00

“The fruit, oak, tannin and acid balance is impeccable, as is the length and drive of the palate.” – 96 James Halliday

The earthiness continues on the palate with black liquorice root and anise, balanced against flavours of marbled beef. A mouth watering acidity adds a refreshing bite, held up by tannins and impressions of wet slate and pencil lead.

This bight garnet red needs a little time with the option to cellar up until 2046. Open to an explosion of earthy flavours and enjoy with lamb or mature cheese.

Description

With a distinctly earthly scent of ponzu and dried shiitake mushroom, Penfolds Chief Winemaker Peter Gago says, The senses are easily conveyed to a forest after rain – wet bracken, liberated mulch, damp soils. Naturally (new and used) oak plays a (minor) role in this fanciful aromatic romp.”

96 – James Halliday, The Wine Companion

“A 51/49% blend from the Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Wrattonbully, matured for 12 months in American hogsheads (37% new). Good colour, although not as striking as some of the other wines in the range. Likewise retains some elegance despite the clarion call of the cascade of fruit flavours. The fruit, oak, tannin and acid balance is impeccable, as is the length and drive of the palate. The savoury subtext is equally good.”
