Penfolds BIN 128 Coonawarra Shiraz

11,295 KShs

Medium-bodied and well-proportioned, yet not big.

ABV: 14.5% 
Vintage: 2018
Suggested Food Pairings: This wine can be enjoyed with friends and every day, while at the table it pairs well with: risotto, lasagna and grilled steaks

With each vintage release the cool-climate Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz provides an interesting counterpoint to the more opulent and richly concentrated warm climate Kalimna® Bin 28 Shiraz.

Bin 128 comprises fruit sourced from the unique terra rossa soils of Coonawarra, a region that exemplifies the perfume, transparency and seductive nature of cool-climate red table wines. Coonawarra has remained the source of shiraz fruit for Bin 128 since the inaugural release of the 1962 vintage.

In order to further enhance the regional qualities of Bin 128, the wine is matured in a mixture of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads, élevage that was refined during the 1980’s when the transition was made from American to French oak.
