Product Details

An opulent blend boasting dark cherry and forest cake fruits with earthy flavours. Exotic Chinese five spice, satsuma plums and savoury roast meat aromas. The finish features textbook cabernet with well integrated moreish acidity. Although Bin numbers were originally named after the original Bin location after bottling, Bin 8 was given its number because it uses older oak previously used for Bin 128, Bin 28 and Bin 389 – with ‘8’ obviously providing the common thread.

Crafted in the traditional Penfolds style. Ripe, balanced fruit flavours are supported by softly integrated oak resulting in an impressive, smooth red wine. It was introduced in response to a heightened interest in shiraz and cabernet blends – a classic Australian wine style that caught the attention of the international wine media. An early drinking style, which will keep for a few years, but is best soon after release.

    Excellent Shiraz blend with great structure and flavours of cherry and oak. Great to drink now or let sit for a few years and great price.
