PENFOLDS BIN 28 KALIMNA 2011
Savoury 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.
