With each vintage release the cool climate Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz provides an interesting counterpoint to
the more opulent and richly concentrated warm climate Bin 28 Shiraz. Bin 128 is sourced from the unique terra
rossa soils of Coonawarra, a region that exemplifies the perfume, transparency and seductive nature of cool
climate red table wines. Coonawarra has remained the sole source of shiraz fruit for Bin 128 since the inaugural
release of the 1962 vintage. In order to further enhance the regional qualities of Bin 128, the wine is matured in
a mixture of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads, a method that was refined during the 1980’s when the
transition was made from American to French oak.
NOSE Licentious and ‘loud’ … and why not?! An animated uplift of so many desirable shiraz fragrances from
South Australia’s Coonawarra region.
Liberated Mediterranean spices – paprika, rosemary, pink peppercorn – merge into scents of earthy,
gamey sautéed lentil, and then to those of steamed corned beef/silverside.
In parallel, charmed by wafts of the exposed top pastry layer of freshly baked strudel – still moist and imbued
with rhubarb, date and preserved fig.
Cedar, cigar box French oak further confirming this marque’s style thumbprint.
PALATE Convincingly, silverside/corned beef flavours best reflect this region’s matured 2016 shiraz fruit expression …
freshness insured with a cranberry and fresh date garnish.
Dusty – undeniably terra rossa derived. Closer inspection reveals a brick dust textural mesh, reinforced by fine
grained, chalky tannins.
Focussed oak and bright acidity play an important supportive role.
Subtle, layered. Lingers.
