Estate Notes

Penfolds Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz is a very recent addition to the Penfolds stable - a contemporary sub-regional Shiraz from the ancient soils of Marananga in the Barossa Valley - and a great introduction to the Penfolds range.

The Marananga vineyard benefits from warm dry conditions and rich red soils, which provide the backbone to some of the region’s best known wines. A contemporary Shiraz alternative, framed by a mix of oaks; French and American, old and new – crafted in accordance with the traditional Penfolds method.

Reviews

"Deep garnet-purple, the 2013 Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz is unashamedly forward with fragrant notes of warm berries, fruits of forest compote, violets and anise plus touches of cloves and mocha. Medium to full-bodied, it bursts with spicy blackberry preserves flavors in the mouth, supported by firm, rounded tannins and a lively acid backbone, finishing with great persistence." eRobertParker.com

“Shouts out Western Barossa. This Shiraz, spawn out of the new Millennium, has quickly established its own following – it’s not a mini St Henri or junior RWT. It is Bin 150 Shiraz, from Marananga.” “Maturation in 500-litre puncheons is starting to make its desired stylistic Bin 150 point-of-difference…” Peter Gago, Penfolds' Chief Winemaker
