Proudly presenting a formidable 2019 Collection, released in Penfolds 175th Anniversary Year. Indeed, 1.75 centuries of trial & error, trial & tribulation, and results! These wines mirror the testament to the spoils & vision of Penfolds past, present & future. PETER GAGO - Penfolds Chief Winemaker

Grange 2015

Penfolds Grange Shiraz 2015 

The original and most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy, Grange is arguably Australia’s most celebrated wine. Crafted utilising fully-ripe, intensely-flavoured and structured shiraz grapes, the result is a unique Australian style that is now recognised as one of the most consistent of the world’s great wines. 

 

BIN 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2017

St Henri 2015

Often referred to as ‘Baby Grange’, as some parts are matured in the same barrels that held the previous Grange vintage. Containing the judicious balance of fruit and oak, Bin 389 highlights the generous mid-palate Penfolds is known for.

 

BIN 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Launched with the 1990 vintage in 1993, Bin 407 was developed in response to the increasing availability of high quality cabernet sauvignon fruit. With a core of ripe fruit supported by sensitive use of French and American oak, Bin 407 offers depth of flavour.

 

RWT BIN 798 Barossa Valley Shiraz 2017

Penfolds RWT BV Shiraz 2017 

The initials RWT stand for ‘Red Winemaking Trial’, the name given to the project when developmental work began in 1995. Naturally, now no longer a ‘trial’, RWT Barossa Valley Shiraz presents a style true to the region. Matured only in French oak, its style is opulent and fleshy. Made from fruit primarily selected for its lush texture and aromatic qualities, RWT initially offers a lift of trademark tar/bitumen above scents of assorted carpaccio meats, steak tartare, green olive, capers and rosemary.

 

St Henri Shiraz 2016

Penfolds St Henri Shiraz 2016

St Henri is rich and plush when young, gaining soft, earthy, mocha-like characters as it ages. Matured in old, 1,460 litre vats allowing the wine to develop, imparting minimal, if any oak character. St Henri immediately invokes interest with scents of fruit propelled from the glass.

 

BIN 311 Chardonnay 2018

Penfolds Bin 311 Chardonnay 2018

Bin 311 Chardonnay truly reflects the winemakers’ mantra ‘we always go where the fruit grows best and where it best suits style’. In 2018, fruit sourcing moved to multi-regional cool-climate regions; Adelaide Hills, Tumbarumba, Tasmania. In true Bin 311 style, the 2018 vintage exhibits a concentrated fruit spectrum of citrus aromas with a mineral acid backbone.

 

Yattarna Chardonnay 2017

Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay 2017 

Yattarna is the result of shared ambition across generations of Penfolds winemakers to create a white wine that would set the standard for ultra-fine Australian chardonnay. Selectively sourced from the very best cool climate chardonnay regions, Yattarna offers an enticingly fresh and fragrant lift – a citrus edge, leaning towards lime/lime leaf in tandem with Granny Smith apple and honeydew granita.

 

Reserve BIN A Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2018

Penfolds Bin A Chardonnay 2018

Reserve Bin A Chardonnay has evolved into a wine that is now a distinctive, single-region style in its own right, with a contemporary and expressive Adelaide Hills chardonnay persona.

 

BIN 150 Marananga Shiraz 2017

Penfolds Bin 150 Shiraz 2017 

Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz is a sub-regional expression that is unmistakably Penfolds in character. Conceived from the ancient soils of Marananga, where warm dry conditions and rich red soil provide the backbone to some of the Barossa Valley’s best-known wines. 

  

Kalimna® BIN 28 Shiraz 2017

Penfolds Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz 2017 

Kalimna® Bin 28 is a multi-region, multi-vineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented. Exuberant aromatics of black jelly beans, red liquorice and redcurrants are accompanied by a well-balanced palate.

  

BIN 128 Coonawarra Shiraz 2017

Penfolds Bin 128 Shiraz 2017 

Since 1962, Bin 128 has comprised of fruit sourced from Coonawarra’s unique terra rossa soils. As a result, Bin 128 exemplifies the perfume, transparency and seductive nature of cool climate red table wines. The 2017 vintage offers an aromatic veil of black-truffled earthiness meshed with porcini mushroom over a dark chocolate base. Beneath, spiced French oak is evident.

  

BIN 138 Barossa Valley Shiraz Grenache Mataro 2017

Penfolds Bin 138 Shiraz Grenache Mourvedre 2017 

Bin 138 draws its inspiration from the wines of Southern Rhône, where shiraz, grenache and mataro (mourvèdre) are blended in varying proportions to create full-bodied wines possessing rich and heady perfume.

  

BIN 23 Pinot Noir 2018

Penfolds Bin 23 Pinot Noir 2018 

Bin 23 Pinot Noir is a bold and dynamic inclusion to the Penfolds red wine stable, reflecting an evolving style, regional definition and the complexities of the many and varied pinot noir clones.

  

BIN 51 Eden Valley Riesling 2019

Penfolds Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling 2019 

Bin 51 captures many of the attributes of the Eden Valley locale. The region’s high altitude and cool climate induces riesling with great finesse and elegance with a capacity for long-term cellaring.
