Penfolds 2010 Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz and Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz

03-Apr-2013

The Penfolds ‘Bin 28 Kalimna’ Shiraz and ‘Bin 389’ Cabernet/Shiraz wines are the most traditional in the stable and being expressions of the classical warm South Australian (read Barossa Valley) climate are the closest of the Penfolds portfolio to the style of the legendary ‘Grange’. The ‘Kalimna’ is pure Shiraz, and in that sense varietally similar to the icon wine, but the ‘Bin 389’ is aged in barrels, a portion of which housed ‘Grange’ of the previous year. Thus, one can understand why both wines are regarded as the ‘Poor Man’s Grange’. The 2010 wines are particularly special, coming from an outstanding vintage, as so many of the ‘even’ years are for the Penfolds wines. I’ve already tasted them in the 2013 Penfolds ‘Bin’ Release tasting (click here to read), but I review the two closest to ‘Grange’ in a little more depth here. www.penfolds.com
