Product Details

There are lots of aromas in this release: raspberry, red liquorice, dark red berried-fruits and red jelly-beans. The palate has an interesting mix of white chocolate and mocha flavours that merge with soft rounded tannins.

After the skinny 2011 vintage, Penfolds Bin 138 returns to fleshy, juicy form in 2012. Though cooler than normal, the vintage provided sufficient heat to ripen the grapes fully – at the same time delivering bold, heady, fruity aromas. The proportions of each variety vary considerably from year to year, and the 2012 leads with shiraz (66 per cent), followed by grenache at 23 per cent and the rest mataro (aka mourvedre). Shiraz gives the wine great richness and depth of fruit flavour, but grenache adds greatly to the perfume and vibrant fruit flavour. Mataro is most likely the source of the persistent, grippy tannins behind the fleshy fruit. Could cellar for a decade or so in cool, stable conditions.' - 4 ½ Stars.
