Penfolds Bin 620 2008
Penfolds Bin 620 2008 pays homage to the 1966 Bin 620, a legendary Penfolds show wine from a great Coonawarra vintage. A unique Australian blend - Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz - true to the Penfolds house style and worthy of Special Bin status.
In the 2008 vintage the low yielding Penfolds Coonawarra Blocks 5, 10 & 20 produced superb quality fruit with tremendous flavour definition, allowing the creation of a wine similar in style and stature to the original 1966 Bin 620. Barrel fermentation in new French and American oak has woven all the fruit and oak elements into a wine of impressive depth and complexity. This classically structured, beautifully balanced wine has all the finesse and integrity to develop and evolve for many decades with careful cellaring.
Presented in a beautiful Red Leather Case!

Colour: Deep and generous red with a dark core. Nose: Instantly proclaims Penfolds ... and then, naturally Coonawarra! An aromatic colour chart reveals red, rather than blue or black fruits. Also red liquorice and black olive. Hovering above - wafts of tomato/quince/ cabernet paste meshed with cinnamon & nutmeg yeast-bun spices. Swirling & time in glass reveal fresh, bright beetroot and star-anise/ soy Asian artefact. Exotic, with barely-discernible oak at least offering one recognisable sensory hook. Palate: Seamless, sophisticated and stylish. Although flavours of cola, sarsaparilla & white chocolate are immediately apparent, it is the structure & textural weave that impact.
