Penfolds Bin 23 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir
Penfolds pinots always seem to have an air of having been assembled by an expert in shiraz and cabernet. In 2012, this translates into a tightly wound palate scaffolded with firm, fine tannins. The aim here is a pinot for the long-term, which Gago admits is more robust than some. It’s a savoury style of beetroot allusions, with a fragrant lift of rose hip, notes of jubes and red berry compote. A taut acid line and finely structured profile make this a firmer Bin 23, with a confident decade before it.
