Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna 2018 750ml
Kalimna® Bin 28 offers a showcase of warm climate Australian shiraz – ripe, robust and generously flavoured.
First made in 1959, Bin 28 is named after the famous Barossa Valley Kalimna vineyard purchased by Penfolds in 1945 and from which the wine was originally sourced.
Today, Kalimna® Bin 28 is a multi-region, multi-vineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented.
When to drink
Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Peak drinking 2022 – 2038.
Initially, plummy fruits meshed with sweet spices (predominantly cinnamon), almond.
And then a pause to imbibe the aromatic atmospherics of a patisserie:
Crème anglaise, cannoli with vanilla custard ... and classic bourbon vanilla at that!
Raspberry/chocolate flavours with a sprinkling of spice and cola.
Symptoms: Fleshy, and an almost glycerolic texture; bulbous/expansive palate profile.
