2009 Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz

6 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka Review
You could, arguably, call this wine something of an icon really - in a good way - with a reputation of rich, chunky, full bodied consistency that goes back for many years, backed up by a cellaring reputation that every red wine loving Aussie knows about.

This vintage - which ended up as a very warm one in South Australia - is nothing if not a traditional one, with loads of rich chocolate flavours, a heap of juicy red fruit flavours, with lightish tannins and a rather generous mid palate. Strictly speaking it's not going to be a long term bin 28, but it will surely be a damn good drink over the medium term.

Winemaker's Note
PETER GAGO, PENFOLDS CHIEF WINEMAKER: - “A courageous follow-on to the stellar 50th 2008 release… No apologies—typical Bin 28 with its trademark early or later drinking option of choice.” “Decanting mandatory—to unleash and open up what lurks beneath this tightly-coiled marquee.”

Colour - Dense core, purple rim.

Nose - Red fruits, and only a skerrick of detectable oak.

At first, wafts of a ‘deconstructed’ sweet mince tart, dates, prunes… Later, higher notes of brulée/bread and butter pudding, cinnamon. Throughout, a staggered scented release of musk, bay-leaf and tobacco. Quite the aromatic chromatogram!

Palate - Raspberry, and black fruits abound. Chocolate, black licorice… and surprisingly nuances of (cold) oyster sauce. Sleek tannins, belying the wine’s textural plushness. Well-integrated, seasoned oak. Balanced.
Other Reviews
These wines have grown in freshness and structure in recent times with the 2009 carrying fruit of great depth depth with excellent restraint to the almost luscious blackberry and a solid core of soft tannins and concentrated fruit all the way to the finish.

In years to come, 2009 Bin 28 is at risk of being lost between the blockbusters of 2008 and 2010. But like the underrated 1999, which ultimately emerged as a classic and long-lived vintage, 2009 will work its magic in the cellar. There is a restraint here that harks back to the classic vintages of Bin 28, with a focus on firm structure and fine tannins. Restrained oak presence supports and propels its primary, dark berry fruits. Fruit balance, tannin presence, acid integration and flavour persistence all point to a long life. Blended from Padthaway, Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale and Robe and matured for twelve months in used American oak hogsheads. A $4 price rise is more than justified.

Sweetly scented with raspberries, redcurrants, vanilla oak and fresh violets, this smooth, supple shiraz of medium to full-body delivers a modestly rich depth of juicy red fruit supported by a fine, velvety spine. Very polished and marginally spirity to finish, it represents a more elegant and supple expression of this label that might surprise some of its devotees.

The Australian Wine Annual 2013
A blend led by Padthaway, with Barossa, Langhorne, McLaren Vale and Robe falling in behind. This has a dense colour and a bright, reddish fruit nose, fairly straightforward vanilla-scented oak and plum also in the mix. The palate s rich and supple with round plum, blackberry and raspberry fruit flavour _ better as a very young or older wine, so you ll have to make a call early on.
