Super tight and flinty aromas with a burst of lime and pithy grapefruit and plenty of spicy spark. The palate is taut and succulent, showing slightly chalky texture and lime, apple and green-pear flavors, delivered with power through the finish. Prominent acidity. Drink now, but better as a 5 to 6-year-old wine

The Penfolds team developed this wine as a potential white sibling to Grange, but chose Yattarna Chardonnay for that role instead. Bin 51 is a ripe style of Eden riesling, yielding layers of flavor in 2018 that run from deep tones of yellow plum skin and peach close to the pit up to high notes of tangerine. Rich enough to completely clothe its acidity, this is a complex wine with some cereal notes and walnut-skin savor in the end. The fruit makes it accessible now while the structure suggests it will benefit from aging for eight to ten years. (Feb 2019)

Classic lime sherbet notes mark the nose of the 2018 Riesling Bin 51. It's leafy and fresh, then folds in hints of riper fruit on the palate, such as peach and pear. Crushed stone and wet moss give it a firm grounding in the earth as well. Crisp, lean and long, it shimmers with positive sunshine and energy, vibrant and lingering on the finish.

Tangy mango and Key lime flavors are bright and refreshing, showing an appealing fleshy side to balance the racy acidity. Fresh ginger, subtle beeswax and pear drop notes linger on the complex, expressive finish. Drink now. 531 cases imported.
