Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2016 is a gem in the Penfolds range of exquisite wines. Bin 28 offers a showcase of warm climate Australian shiraz – ripe, robust and generously flavoured. First made in 1959, Bin 28 is named after the famous Barossa Valley Kalimna vineyard purchased by Penfolds in 1945 and from which the wine was originally sourced. Today, Kalimna Bin 28 is a multi-region, multivineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented.Read more...

Warm conditions prevailed in the early part of the summer allowing vines to grow well with good bunch set. Milder conditions in January allowed for optimal flavour development, with late rain refreshing the vines. Despite the challenges of a relatively dry season, ripening was even with smaller than average berries. Harvest commenced quickly with shiraz showing great colour and complex flavours.
Peak drinking 2022 – 2034. Drinking well now, but will improve with time.
