In the style of the stonking 2010 Bin 28. This is a wine layered with black fruits of all kinds - Tyson Stelzer

Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz is the archetypal warm climate Australian shiraz - ripe, robust and generously flavoured. First made in 1959, Bin 28 is named after the famous Barossa Valley Kalimna vineyard purchased by Penfolds in 1945 and from which the wine was originally sourced. Today, Kalimna Bin 28 is a multi-region, multi-vineyard blend, with the Barossa Valley always well represented.

"Richly concentrated, generous in composure and sinuous with deep set blackberry, dark cherry, chinotto flavours. Elemental, young and juicy, but impressively built for the long term. The essence of the Penfolds tradition."  Andrew Caillard MW

The 2012 Bin 28 Kalimna was sourced from vineyards in McLaren Vale, Wrattonbully, Langhorne Creek, Barossa Valley, Padthaway and Upper Adelaide. The wine was matured for 13 months in American oak hogsheads.

"Medium-deep crimson. Lovely blackberry, mocha and liquorice aromas. Warm/ generous fleshy wine with deep-set blackberry flavours, plentiful ripe-chalky tannins, superb mid-palate richness and integrated mineral acidity. Finishes chocolaty firm with an long, inky plume. Grippy, but not abrasive. Really good. Drink now to 2035.

Vintage Conditions: Winter rainfall was lower than the long-term average for most parts of South Australia. This pattern carried into spring in regions such as McLaren Vale, before rainfall in December replenished soil moisture and a fast and even veraison ensued. Mild daytime temperatures and cool evenings across most of the ripening period allowed impressive flavour development. Warm, dry conditions continued throughout harvest with fruit picked in optimal condition across each vineyard. Smaller berry and bunch sizes were noticeable in most regions. This, coupled with favourable weather conditions, induced great results for traditional quality markers – colour, tannin profile, fruit concentration and flavour depth."  Penfolds

"Chambers is a benchmark producer of the Rutherglen style and this late-picked Muscat offers a burnt-orange-sunset hue in the glass, with a green rim. Evoking enticing aromas of orange marmalade, honey, medjool dates and almond blossom, the palate continues along similar lines. Unctuous and intensely sweet, there's just enough acidity keep this from syrup territory. It would benefit enormously from a creamy, salty cheese pairing."  Joe Czerwinski, Wine Enthusiast - 93 points and Top 100 Wines of 2015 (#61)

"In the style of the stonking 2010 Bin 28, though without the same gloss and polish, this is a wine layered with black fruits of all kinds, mixed spice and liquorice, even a note of pot pourri. It has density and presence, yet agility and poise, thanks to layers of firm, powdery tannins, well balanced acidity and excellent persistence. Slightly woolly tannin structure detracts a little at this exceedingly youthful stage, but we're not used to seeing Bin 28 so early, so give it time.”  Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste - 93 points

"Deep crimson. Intense dark cherry, mulberry, blackberry, brambly aromas with dark chocolate notes. Richly concentrated, generous in composure and sinuous with deep set blackberry, dark cherry, chinotto flavours, dark chocolate nuances, fine gritty, slightly uscular tannins. Finishes chewy firm and flavourful. Elemental, young and juicy, but impressively built for the long term. The essence of the Penfolds tradition."  Andrew Caillard MW – 93 points

"Sweet, porty introduction. Full attack of flavour. Plum, bitumen, clove, hay and chocolate-on-toast. Excellent integration. Alcohol warmth shows. Heady. Generous. Controlled grunt. Has the stuffing to see it perform well in the cellar but there's not a lot to suggest that it will ever exhibit a lot of charm. Good but not great example of a solid, reliable red. I've set the drinking window out a bit but this can easily be consumed and enjoyed young.  Drink:  2017 - 2028+."  Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front - 92 points

Wine region map of South Australia

South Australia

South Australian is responsible for more than half the production of all Australian wine. It is home to more than 900 wineries across 18 wine regions. The regions are Adelaide Hills, Adelaide Plains, Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Coonawarra, Currency Creek, Eden Valley, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale, Mount Benson, Mount Gambier, Padthaway, Riverland, Robe, Southern Fleurieu, Southern Flinders Ranges and Wrattonbully.

Many of the well-known names in the South Australian wine industry established their first vineyards in the late 1830s and early 1840s. The first vines in McLaren Vale were planted at Reynella in 1839 and Penfold's established Magill Estate on the outskirts of Adelaide in 1844.

South Australia has a vast diversity in geography and climate which allows the State to be able to produce a range of grape varieties - from cool climate Riesling in the Clare and Eden Vallies to the big, full bodied Shiraz wines of the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. Two of Australia's best-known wines, Penfolds Grange and Henschke Hill of Grace, are produced here. There is much to discover in South Australia for the wine lover.
