A new addition to the Penfolds lineup, the 2016 Bin 111A Shiraz is a blend of Clare (51%) and Barossa (49%) fruit from vineyards that have previously contributed to Grange. Aged in 100% new French oak, it's a rich, luxuriously textured wine that's packed with ripe fruit and finely textured tannins. Hints of grilled meat and exotic dried spices accent red raspberries and redcurrants in this full-bodied but exceptionally silky and elegant red that meets the high expectations for such a pricey bottling.
Generous and expressive, oozing with blackberry compote, cassis and framboise notes, offering hints of dark chocolate–covered coffee bean and a whisper of dried rose petal. The tannins are sink-your-teeth-into-them dense but never get in the way of enjoyment. The long finish leaves a wonderful impression. Drink now through 2035. 10 cases imported. — MW
COLOUR: Deep dark red // NOSE: Clare aromatics immediately evident…iodine, caper berries and grated dark chocolate. // PALATE:
Velvety. Completely engulfs. Tempers palate…doesn't attack or intimidate with alcolhol or extract. A mix of bitter chocolate dust, wet bitumen and a maelstrom of dark fruits reflect the wine's age and confirm derivation.
