Bin 8 Shiraz Cabernet 2019 0.75L





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. Although Bin numbers were originally named after the original Bin location after bottling, Bin 8 was given its number because it uses older oak previously used for Bin 128, Bin 28 and Bin 389-with "8" obviously providing the common thread.

Bottle Size: 0.75L
Region: McLaren Vale, Wrattonbully, Fleurieu, Coonawarra
ABV: 14.5%
Vintage: 2019
Grape Varietal: 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Shiraz
Tasting Notes: An initial flourish/plume of pepper and peppermint, giving way to intriguing tarragon/oregano herbal notes. Aromatically laminated: below-malt (Ovaltine) and boot polish; above-pastille and sugared fruits/jube/black jelly bean. Oak sits comfortably… barely detected, respectful. Fresh and lively. Complete, full, balanced… good weight and length. Earthy/mushroom complexities remain comfortable in the wake of a thrust of dark chocolate, mocha. Gripping red fruits augment an appealing tannin/acidity attaque.
