Classic Australian Shiraz brimming with plummy berried fruits, spices and ripe tannins. Benchmark Australian Shiraz!
Proudly displaying intense fruit definition, ripe fleshy palate structure and generosity of flavor, Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz has long enjoyed universal appeal and award-winning performances at international wine shows.
Matured in older American oak, the 2008 Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz reveals a deep garnet-purple color and expressive notes of ripe cherries, blackberry preserves and crushed blueberries with some hints of baking spices and slightly burnt toast. Rich, ripe, full bodied and generous in the mouth, it has a medium level of rounded tannins, very crisp acid and a long finish. Drinking well now, it should remain good to 2017.
Glass-staining purple. Assertive aromas of black raspberry, licorice and smoke. Densely packed but lively, thanks to bright acidity and peppery spices. Shows very good density and an array of red and dark berry flavors. Finishes with supple tannins and very good persistence, with the dark berry note echoing. There's an awful lot of fruit here, which makes this wine approachable now, but it's built to age.
Distinctly black plum and black raspberry in its fruit character, this contrasts honeyed fruit and savory black tannins. A year or two of bottle age should alight the elements of this sunny shiraz.
