Delivery Details

Penfolds Bin 2 was first released in 1960, yet was temporarily discontinued in Australia in the 1970s at  the height of the white wine boom. The original Bin 2 was an ‘Australian Burgundy’ style (despite its Rhône varieties) – typically a soft, medium-bodied wine based on shiraz. The Bin 2 blend of shiraz and mataro is still relatively uncommon in Australian table wines. Also known as monastrell or mourvèdre, mataro was introduced to Australia in the 1830s. Often used in fortified wine production, this grape is widely planted in the Barossa Valley. It is valued by winemakers for its blending attributes, adding complexity and palate grip. Interest in Bin 2 has grown as the popularity of traditional Rhône varieties and blends continues to flourish.

Grape: Mataro, Shiraz
Autumn and winter were dry and cool across South Australia. Record-low rainfall prevailed through September to March. The start of the growing season was slightly delayed in the Barossa Valley and other warmer regions. Warm conditions prevailed in the early part of the summer allowing vines to develop healthy canopies and good bunch set. Some late rain in January and early February was a welcome relief. Temperatures
in spring and early summer were above the long-term average, resulting in an early harvest for shiraz. Cooler conditions followed from mid-February which suited the later ripening mataro. Grapes across all the main growing regions were able to ripen evenly and develop desirable flavours.
Savoury, rather than fruity. At this youthful stage, meaty pan scrapings laced with cardamom and a myriad of other spices suggest a blend sourced from more than one site, more than one variety. A hint of dusty oak, meshed and well-integrated shiraz and mataro fruits, brimming with flavours of cured meats - notably venison, pistachio terrine. Tannins and acidity draw out the finish.

Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Peak drinking window now - 2024.
