Penfolds Bin 28 Shiraz 2020


Originally known as Kalimna Shiraz after the Barossa vineyard it was sourced from, now we have four SA regions in play without the Kalimna name attached. You couldn’t taste a more classic Penfolds shiraz than this with all its rich, dark, ripe fruit inside a subtle wrap of American oak that adds familiar chocolate and spice notes to the palate. There’s cola too, then some crumbled earthiness, while fruit acidity remains lively and the textural tannin profile friendly and welcoming. Value is most attractive as well.
