For this Friday’s tasting we will have the PENFOLDS 2014 COLLECTION OPEN IN STORE, very exciting !
Established back in 1844, just 8 years after the creation of South Australia, this winery has played a pivotal role in the evolution of wine making in Australia, and across the world.
Words that have been repeatedly used to describe the 2012 vintage in South Australia are “fantastic’, ‘outstanding’, sensational’, ‘best in a lifetime’ and ‘perfect in every way’. The collection of Penfolds reds we will have open on Friday will show you how good this vintage really was, in the hands of an exceptional wine making team.
Open Friday, the 5th of December, from 4.00pm until 7.00pm, will be
Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2012 – a multi region blend of warm climate Shiraz from across South Australia. Nose of red-currant, cherry, almond, tanned leather and aniseed. Palate is balanced, creamy, milk chocolate, berried fruits and spices.
Penfolds Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz 2012 – fruit sourced solely from the Coonawarra region, and fermented in French oak, this wine shows more of cooler climate Australian Shiraz. Nose of glaceed cherry, red jelly, elderflower and the iconic Coonawarra choc mint. Palate is sophisticated, Pomegranate, cumquat, beetroot? Chalky grippy tannins, long finish.
Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2012 – Often referred to as ‘Baby Grange’ because components are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange. Combining the structure of Cabernet and the richness of Shiraz, Bin 389 exemplifies judicious balance of fruit and oak. Nose of dates, prunes and Middle-Eastern dried herbs. Palate is tight and focused, marzipan, liquorice, aniseed and dark fruits.
Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 – A straight cabernet from premium South Australian vineyards, Bin 407 is designed to be approachable young, but with all the depth and flavour of the iconic Bin 707.
