Crimson red, a shimmer of garnet on rim. Exuberant aromatics. At first, back to school - memories of black jelly beans, then a gentle spectral gradation to red liquorice and redcurrants. Adhering to this colour theme, goji berry, wild raspberry and a red-fruited chutney. A transient suggestion of sandalwood spices? Maybe. Well-balanced. Whirling black fruits and an oscillating shiraz disposition - Bin 28 by any other name, personality intact. Flavours akin to a consommé of dried porcini mushrooms; structurally embedded with grainy/sandy tannins. Additionally, tobacco, tabasco and tamarind noted ... okay to mention taut, tenacious?! Exits with an almost negroni / Cynar bittersweet clean finish. Very much looking forward to monitoring this 2017 Bin 28's journey in bottle.

Impressive for the concentrated notes of blackberry, cassis and framboise, with touches of dried violet, black walnut and black pepper. Dense tannins and espresso and tobacco details linger on the finish. Drink now through 2034. 9,560 cases imported.

A blend of fruit from Barossa, McLaren Vale and Padthaway, the 2017 Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz is meant to replicate the Northern Barossa style of its namesake vineyard, with opulent dark fruit, savory spice notes of pepper and licorice and a full-bodied, plush mouthfeel. It's a delicious Shiraz for drinking over the next decade or so.

The 2017 Shiraz Kalimna Bin 28 is a multi-vineyard cuvée sourced from Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Upper Adelaide, and Wrattonbully. Brought up in American oak, it reveals a deep ruby/purple hue as well as a rocking bouquet of sweet plums, Asian spices, vanilla, and black olives, with a hint of eucalyptus emerging with time in the glass. Rounded, medium-bodied, and supple on the palate, it has plenty of fruit, good balance, and will keep nicely for 5-7 years.

Penfolds's oldest "bin" wine feels like a throwback to a bygone era of South Aussie Shiraz. A winter warmer for those who like their wine snuggled under an oak blanket, this multi-regional blend, aged in American oak, is currently cloaked in vanilla and butterscotch oak, under which lie red- and black-berry and baking-spice notes. The palate is gripped by savory tannins and rather heavy, ripe fruit. This needs protein to be drunk now but can age until 2028 or longer.
