PENFOLDS RESERVE BIN A

$120.00Price

COLOUR: Vibrant light straw with lime green hues 

NOSE: Archetypical Adelaide Hills – ostensibly white stone fruits peach and nectarine. 

Sensitive batonnage of yeast lees has coaxed out a complexing nuttiness – assorted cashew, almond and Brazil nut with an ever so slight trace of nutmeg.

Latent wafts of sulphide/struck match (almost) bring closure … until a beguiling mortar and pestle, (brine) ground oyster shell scent tip toes across the finish line.  

PALATE: Unravels in the glass to reveal an enthralling and multi-dimensional package – line, depth, weight …!  

A ‘big’ wine, certainly not shy in character! Big? Voluminous, yet controlled – restraint/precision wrestling  with energy/tension.

No losers. Hints of citrus and nashi pear with the reported 40% of new oak totally absorbed, barely noticeable. Checked?  Yes, 40% new!

Impressively well-integrated and complex!
