Bin 2 by Penfolds is a concentrated, full-bodied red wine cuvée from the Mataro and Shiraz grape varieties. The grapes for this red wine grow in the Australian wine-growing region South Australia.
In the glass, this wine reveals a deep dark, strong black-red colour with a deep, purple core. This cuvée shows a warm spicy, aromatically robust bouquet with hints of figs, dates, plums (prunes), quince paste and cake spices. Notes of preserved blueberries and blackberries and leather underline the aromas of the nose.
On the palate, this Australian red wine is full and velvety with a medium to full body and a taste reminiscent of rich berry fruit and warm chocolate aromas. Subtle oak notes and sophisticated integrated, fine-grained, almost powdery tannin are added in the background. A fresh acidity and a long, chunky finish with a spicy aftertaste of dark berries perfect this wine.
Vinification of the Shiraz Mataro Bin 2 PenfoldThe
Shiraz and Mataro grapes are separated, harvested, selected and vinified separately according to origin. The mash is fermented in stainless steel tanks in the Penfolds wine cellar and after the fermentation process has been completed, this wine matures for 8 months in French oak barriques (10% new wood) and in American oak hogsheads. After the woodwork, this wine is married to the final blend and rests for some time on the bottle in the wine cellars before this red wine leaves the Penfolds winery.
