Penfolds ‘Bin 28’ ‘Kalimna’ South Australia Shiraz 2011

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 16-Apr-2014
First made in 1959 and named after the ‘Kalimna Vineyard’ in the Barossa Valley, purchased by Penfolds in 1945, the wine showcases the warm climate Shiraz style. Fruit from McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Adelaide, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in seasoned American oak hogsheads. Vibrant, saturated black-red colour with some purple hues. The bouquet is moderately full with ripe black plum, liquorice and chocolatey fruit infused with waves of spicy, cedary oak. Medium-full bodied, full, mouthfilling and open flavours of ripe and sweet black plums and liquorice show with richness and juiciness. The palate is hearty and accessible with good tannin extraction and structure and background acidity. Fulsome, fruity and with plenty of mouthfeel, some alcohol warmth carries the wine to a grainy, but lush, cedary, oaky finish. This is a hearty and ripe Shiraz with sweet plummy fruit, plenty of mouthfeel and cedary oak. Serve with slow cooked game meat over the next 7-10 years. 18.0+/20 Apr 2014 RRP $32.99
