Bin 8 has been crafted in the traditional Penfolds style. Ripe, balanced fruit flavours are supported by softly integrated oak resulting in a silky, smooth red wine. An early drinking style, which will keep for a few years, but is best soon after release.
Colour: Vibrant deep red.
Nose: An initial flourish/plume of pepper and peppermint, giving way to intriguing tarragon/oregano herbal notes.
Aromatically laminated: below - malt (Ovaltine) & boot polish; above - pastille & sugared fruits/jube/black jelly bean.
Oak sits comfortably… barely detected, respectful.
Palate: Fresh and lively. Complete, full, balanced… good weight and length. Earthy/mushroom complexities remain comfortable in the wake of a thrust of dark chocolate, mocha. Gripping red fruits augment an appealing tannin/acidity attaque.
