Penfolds Bin 8 Cab Shiraz 2018 750ml
Bin 8 has been crafted in the traditional Penfolds style. Ripe, balanced fruit flavours are supported by softly integrated oak resulting in an impressive, smooth red wine. It was introduced in response to a heightened interest in shiraz and cabernet blends – a classic Australian wine style that caught the attention of the international wine media.
An early drinking style, which will keep for a few years, but is best soon after release.

Drinking well, but will improve with time. Peak drinking window now - 2032.
Gorgeous perfumed aromatics with fresh mulberries and raspberry compote conjuring thoughts of summer berry pudding.
A hint of bay leaf adds a savoury note.
Perfumed and lifted..
Textured, plush tannins create a neat and tidy framework to house rich blackberry fruit spiced by oak derived vanilla pod.
Barrel maturation has added a creamy texture and mouthfeel.
