Penfolds Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz 2015

  • $120.00*

There are three distinct offers of Penfolds red wines. Single vineyard (Magill Estate Shiraz, Kalimna Block 42 Cabernet Sauvignon), single region (Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz, RWT Barossa Shiraz) and multi-regional blends (Grange, Bin 707). Debuting in 2008 the Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz delivered a fourth approach, with Penfolds showing its hand at sub-regional expression with this contemporary alternative.
Winemaker Notes

Colour:
Impenetrable black core with a purple rim

Nose:
Wafts of soy (dark) & ulong (fermented) tea ascend.

Oak is absorbed, allowing stylish Barossa fruits to weave their magic. Yet there's a lot more than only fruit - demi-glace / pan scrapings / chacuterie complexities... black pudding? And beneath? Aniseed, borscht, and a beetroot / rhubarb mix... rather than the expected red or black-curranted fruits.

Palate:
Fresh and vibrant. Youthful.

Texturally, a slinky, polished sheen massaged by very fine and grainy tannins. In the flavour spectrum, double-roasted black coffee beans meshed with an assortment of dark-berried fruits, violet & musk. Measuring high on the drinkability-scale - accessible, taut.

Balanced. Buffed. Barossa!
