Penfolds Bin 150 Shiraz 2016 x6
SOUTH AUSTRALIA-BAROSSA VALLEY
12 months in American (25% new) and French (7% new) hogsheads and puncheons
Deep dark red
Sub-region instantly ID'd - voluminous blue fruits and giveaway juniper. More than just 'earthy' - freshly tilled earth, coaltar dust, gritty. Elemental. Tasting at this stage of bottle maturation - an ever so subtle hint of pâté topped with fortified gelatine. Well, maybe not so subtle!
Crunchy riberry, deemed a native superfood and often eaten raw - reportedly possessing 'a refreshing, spicy flavour, with a hint of clove and cinnamon'. More familial, more primary - blueberry, glazed black plum and fig. Pronounced and omnipresent oak - still sensitively evoking a (teacake sponge) sweetness. A crisp and clean finish ensues, with a yoghurt "bite" (acidity) completing the package oh, and were satin tannins mentioned?
