Penfolds Bin 138 Shiraz Grenache Mataro 2014 75cl
A wonderful Barossa Valley counterpoint to the (highly regarded) blending of Shiraz with Cabernet Sauvignon… compliments of Grenache and Mataro. Put simply – A very nice drink indeed! Uncomplicated
About the BrandPenfolds Bin 138 2013 Bin 138 draws its inspiration from the wines of the Southern Rhône, where Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre create full-bodied wines. Grapes are sourced from from old, low-yielding Barossa Valley vines and it is one of the few wines that remains in component form during oak maturation and is blended just prior to bottling

Grenache driven aromatics – despite this variety representing only one barrel in five of the blend!No oak to speak of. Cherry/strawberry fondue aromas somewhat indulged by a spray of fairy floss/sherbet dustiness.A more down-to-earth cold meatloaf savouriness, although some persuasion required to aromaticallydetect aspic jelly?PALATE Medium-bodied.An ethereal lightness (literally) – avec gloss and sheen. Refined.Structurally perceived as an initial (enveloping) outer husk of berried flavours and tactile mouth imprint/attaque, followed by a mid-palate burst of fruits.This palate package is wrapped within a weave of seasoned oak, adhered via crisp acidity and tannins
