Penfolds Bin 169 Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Created to reflect a Penfolds contemporary winemaking approach, emphasising both regionality and maturation of cabernet sauvignon in fine-grained French oak. A style that is immediately Penfolds, whilst simultaneously illustrative of its ongoing search for diversity and style separation. An honest reflection of the region bearing testament of Penfolds longstanding commitment to the vineyards of Coonawarra.
An immediate proclamation at first sip. Red fruits swamp the palate – raspberry, cranberry, redcurrant, rhubarb … and a little cassis. No mid-palate deficit – this cabernet’s mouth-watering acidity and succulence fill all gaps. Grainy, highly defined / high-resolution tannins – right across the palate, in tandem with supportive oak. A balanced density and volume. Expansive.
