Estate Notes

Penfolds, Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz, 2015 is a classy multi-region and multi-vineyard blend, using grapes from the McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Padthway, Wrattonbully, and Robe. Aged for 12 months in seasoned American hogshead barrels.

The origins of the Penfolds estate are set firmly in the medical sphere, and its reputation built up over the course of the 19th century based on the production of wines (often fortified) which were prescribed to patients by Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold who had settled in South Australia in 1844.


"Though it bears the Kalimna name, this is a multi-regional blend from the McLaren Vale, the Barossa Valley, Padthaway, Wrattonbully and Robe. It’s also a cracking example of warm climate Shiraz, with deeply saturated colour and a vanilla and coffee bean nose. Plush and sleek, this has a fine line of acidity amid punchy dark cherry fruit and savoury tapenade, with a lick of creosote on the finish. The tannins are sweet and generous, giving a languid glycerol texture. Good length, nice drop. " Decanter Magazine

Deep red/mauve in colour. A nose reminiscent of coffee, allspice and fruit cake. Fresh and lively attack in the mouth with slightly spiky acidity and mineral character. On the long finish the flavours broaden out to reveal ripe fruit and green tannins. I strongly suspect these will settle down and reveal a great wine. David King
