Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz 2020 is an interesting counterpoint to Bin 28 Shiraz, and comprises of fruit sourced from the unique terra rossa soils of Coonawarra. It’s a beautifully perfumed wine that is seductive, bold and intense, ready to enjoy now or cellar for years to come.

Black cherry core with ruby highlights. Coonawarra terra rossa motif... cocoa powder dust, blackboard chalk, white peppercorns. Cool fruits: punnets of mulberries and blueberries. From the butcher, fresh lamb with rosemary, cold black pudding with pepper and allspice. Sweet notes of black forest clafoutis, cherry ripe chocolate. Enticing. Structurally impressive. Mouthcoating chalky tannins balanced by cranberry succulence and barely ripe mulberries. Italian herb garden: sage, rosemary, thyme, oregano. Bruschetta with sun-warm freshly picked tomatoes and basil drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. Succulent moreish acidity and tension. A mouth-watering wine, silky the finish. Deserves food, perfect with game or beef.

"Bin 128 often seems to live in the shadow of its more obvious Barossan shiraz cousins that are viewed as quintessentially Penfolds. It offers a quieter presence in the glass, dare I suggest one that doesn’t mind correcting the variety’s reputation as Coonawarra’s second tier red grape (after cabernet.) In the Penfolds’ wine kingdom you have to search Bin 128 out. The 2020 is worth the quest. It’s a stunner. So Coonawarra in its celebration of black fruit intensity and dried herbs with well-knitted fine tannins. It slurps up the French oak (hogsheads the oak of choice, 20% new) and then some, bringing the smoothness and subtle taste of warm toast. It manages its generous 14.5% alcohol well, the lasting impression is of a medium-bodied, well-tuned wine with time on its side."
