Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz is a sub-regional expression that is unmistakably Penfolds in character. Conceived from the ancient soils of Marananga, which lie very close to the centre of the Barossa Valley floor – slightly to the North-West, where warm dry conditions and rich red soil provide the backbone to some of the region’s best-known wines. Each release delivers a contemporary shiraz alternative, framed by a mix of oaks; French and American, old and new – crafted in the 'Penfolds way'.
A vivid/shiny/bright blackened-red. Shouts ‘Old Barossa’… Marananga ironstone and weathered blacksmith’s tooling. Hovering florals and scents of charcuterie. Cardamom, candied fennel seed and curry seed vigorously cast into an aromatic whirl. And later - wafts of bread, stalked by roasted nuts, cinnamon. A Barossa shiraz aromatically attired differently. Fruits are showcased more on the palate than nose - dark cherry, ripe boysenberry and blackberry immediately noted. A dried apple skin character mediates at this stage between fruited and non-fruited flavours (coffee grind and soy). Quite an attaque – an appealing bite/grip rather than the familial Bin 150 lushness and viscosity. Perhaps partially explained by raspy tannins – graphite, and bright acidity. Whilst the oak is already ingested, further time to soften in bottle is still sought…
