Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2014


SKU 1235407183


Colour: Purple with a darkened core. Nose: An initial impact of high-toned dark notes - a Shiraz tarriness, black-bean sauce. Following, a tussle between the spice jar's anise and ginger... and the blender's coffee-grind and mocha. Minutes later, without as much as the provocation of a swirl of the glass, the aromatic ascent of pan scrapings, a rich jus and smokey meats. Palate: Bright. Volume, generous in every sense. A purple fruit spectrum unfolds - a fresh assortment of plums and dark berries - many varieties of both. What may appear to be a soft, smooth Haighs Chocolate -like mouth-coating to some... is a roasted eggplant texture/creaminess to others! Tannins - soft and even, texture - almost velvety/suede. Yet, still tarry!

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Shiraz Kalimna Bin 28 is open for business with a gorgeous nose yielding tons of spice box and berry preserves notes, plus suggestions of licorice and chocolate box. It is soft and supple on entry in the mouth with rounded tannins, rich fruit and a long, spicy finish.
