PENFOLDS BIN 28 KALIMNA 2013
Deep dense red
Classic, dark. A black aromatic theme – graphite, flint, char, black jelly bean… A sensitive yet apparent veil of oak – ever so shy, compliant. Scents from the baker – Christmas pudding, replete with brandy and Cointreau-soaked currants; And from the chef – roasted meats, jus, pan-scrapings.
Full and expansive. An immersion of flavour saturation and a textural continuum across the palate. Mouth-coating sweet tannins and balanced acidity…never confronted by any threat of new oak. Black olive and chocolate notes resonate with an abundance of fruits – plum, prune, blackberries, wild blueberries… Persistent length and flavour, finishing firm and assertive.
