Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz

Written by eleanor on January 10th, 2010

Vintage: 2005
Type: Shiraz
Country: South Australia, Australia

To me, this was an Australian red wine that stood out from the other Australian exports showcased at the wine fair.

In a glass, it looks like your typical older shiraz: deep reddish-purple colour, long legs, slight fading at the edges. What sets this wine apart is that it has a slight mossy or earthy character on its finish, which is reminiscent of the Bordeaux from Chateau Rouselle 2004. Could this be an Aussie wine that is channelling a French spirit?

Well done to Wolf Blass for choosing a great company to take to the next level.
