With each vintage release the cool-climate Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz provides an interesting counterpoint to the more opulent and richly concentrated warm climate Kalimna® Bin 28 Shiraz. Bin 128 comprises fruit sourced from the unique terra rossa soils of Coonawarra, a region that exemplifies the perfume, transparency and seductive nature of coolclimate red table wines. Coonawarra has remained the source of shiraz fruit for Bin 128 since the inaugural release of the 1962 vintage. In order to further enhance the regional qualities of Bin 128, the wine is matured in a mixture of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads, a method that was refined during the 1980's when the transition was made from American to French oak.

Rating: 94pts by Andrew Caillard MW
Grape Varietal: Shiraz
Tasting Notes: A quilt of berried shiraz fruits and lingering tannins provide a structural palate platform. A recollection of corned beef and aspic jelly flavours, with but a touch of menthol/fresh tobacco abetting small-berried fruits. A Coonawarra line of acidity affords both vivacity and length of palate. French oak there to help! Looks like, tastes like... 128.
