Penfolds Bin 23 Pinot Noir Red Wine 2016 75cl

Penfolds Bin 23 Pinot Noir Red Wine reflects an evolving style, regional definition and the complexities of the many and varied clones of Pinot Noir. It is bold and a dynamic addition to the Penfolds red wine 

The relationship between Penfolds and the cool climate, high altitude Adelaide Hills wine region continues to grow from strength-to-strength with this Bin 23 Pinot Noir. Following in the footsteps of the success and development of the Penfolds Cellar Reserve Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir.

“A Triple A-Rating for this year’s Bin 23: Alert / Arresting / Authoritative, or using a softer index, Alluring / Appealing / Attentive!” said Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker

The Adelaide Hills 2016 growing season commenced under mild and dry conditions. Rainfall was below-average throughout winter and dry conditions persisted through spring resulting in early vine growth. Conditions for fruit-set and flowering were favourable and contributed towards above average vintage yields. Rain events during late summer were, for the most part, pre-veraison. Cool February conditions meant that ripening was steady and the slightly early start to vintage was a result of a mild and dry growing season. February and March weather allowed for a steady harvest, favourable flavour development and acid retention.
An evocative pinot aromatic eruption revealing scents of Black Forest cake; Kir Royale and cherry derivatives, glazed cherry and cherry blossom. Aromas of ashened damper lifted from the coals morph with those acquired from the wine’s earlier French oak lodgings, very lightly charred, perfumed. Savoury nuances ascend, verging towards those akin to crisp pork belly fat and crackling. Balanced and elegant of understated weight and dimension. Fruity and varietal, acknowledging both age and delaide Hills birthplace. Structurally, diplomatically courted by compliant silky tannins, ‘just-there’ oak, and ‘ever-sopleasant’ acidity. Complete, confident.

Bin 23’s name is derived from the Pinot Noir maturation location ‘Cellar 23’ at Magill Estate. First vintaged in 2009, it is a distinctive style especially made for Penfolds drinkers who enjoy rich, mouth-filling wines with plenty of fruit generosity and flavour length.

Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Drinking window now - 2022.
