Penfolds Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz

A wine of persistence and integrity, a good result for the vintage, though a lesser Bin 150. It’s a complex, spicy and savoury style of finely textured structure, notes of pepper, layers of savoury, charcuterie, gamey complexity and milk chocolate, opening out into black plum and blackberry fruit. Impressive line and length for the season, underlined by a finely structured, silky tannin profile. Matured for 12 months in 20% new and 30% one-year-old French oak and 20% new and 30% one-year-old American oak. Price rise from $75 to $80 this year. Available 6 March 2014.
