    Winemaker's Notes:

    Penfolds Bin 28 is a showcase for warm-climate Australian Shiraz - ripe, robust and generously flavored. First made in 1962, 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, Bin 28 is a multi-region, multi-vineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented, providing a substantial proportion of the fruit for this vintage.

    Color: A deepened crimson with a purple core.

    Nose: The nose is complex and beguiling, with notes of demi-glace and roasting pan juices, beneath scents of pipe tobacco, vanilla and pencil shavings oak - much more than just a simple varietal offering.

    Palate: The palate is full-bodied, refined and taut showing dark, black conserve fruit flavors with Satsuma plum notes to the fore. Further liqueur chocolate and spice flavors are impregnated by overt, chewy and ripe tannins. To sum up, the integrated fruit, oak and acid loudly proclaim harmony and balance. The 2004 vintage conditions were first class and rank alongside and recent exemplary vintage. This, the 2004 vintage, is a real Bin 28, showing polish, poise and pedigree. By all means, drink whenever, but save some for the cellar, and the 2010's.

    Food matches: beef, duck & game, lamb

    I would definitely buy this again. A very smooth wine to simply enjoy after work or with a nice cheese. Buying 4 more.
