Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2011


SKU 1235407183


Color: Deep red. Nose: Savory notes quickly hit the radar - gravy/pan-juices, vegemite/soy. Fruits emit quickly thereafter - boysenberry/mulberry, quince paste. Wafts of cocoa powder and a hint of vanillin entwine playfully beneath. Tanned (fresh) leather cautiously follows... Palate: Medium-bodied. Balanced. Elegantly proportioned, yet with a firm underpinning. A familial trio of a dark-berried compote, boiled fruitcake mixture and fine chocolate powder - to the varietal tune of Shiraz. 'Binding' tannins add to length, reinforcing the extract/character/body of the wine.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple in color and possessing a great aromatic core of blackberries and black plums with nuances of cedar, aniseed, damp earth and charcoal, the medium to full-bodied 2011 Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz has a solid structure of firm, grainy tannins and refreshing acid cutting through the muscular berry and earth flavors before finishing with good persistence. 3,800 bottles were made. Drink it 2014 to 2020+.
