Penfolds Bin 128 Coonawaara Shiraz Red Wine 2016 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, a method that was refined during the 1980’s when the transition was made from American to French oak.

93 Points - MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Specator Insider, "Deep and complex, with licorice- and violet-scented black fruit flavors and notes of oolong tea, chestnut and black pepper. The tannins are dense but polished. Everything is in harmony on the finish, but time in the cellar may reveal more facets. Drink now through 2035."
Grape: Shiraz
Rainfall in Coonawarra was significantly below the long-term average for the entire growing season, while above average temperatures prevailed. Budburst, flowering, veraison and harvest were all earlier than is usually expected of this relatively cool region. December was especially warm with 9 days recorded over 35°C, accelerating vine growth with record times between budburst and veraison. Cool south-easterly breezes originating off the nearby Southern Ocean moderated temperatures from January onwards. February and March temperatures were mild, and the cold nights and warm days delivered an extended ripening period. Overall, tremendous colours, flavour and fine textured tannins.
Cedar, cigar box French oak aromas confirm this marque’s style thumbprint. Convincingly, silverside beef flavours best reflect this region’s matured 2016 shiraz fruit expression, freshness insured with a cranberry and fresh date garnish. Dusty – undeniably terra rossa derived. Closer inspection reveals a brick dust textural mesh, reinforced by fine grained, chalky tannins. Focussed oak and bright acidity play an important supportive role. Subtle, layered. Lingers.
