Wine of the Week AU

Penfolds Bin 128 Shiraz 2015, Coonawarra, AUD $45

This is a stand-out Bin 128. It’s very fragrant: floral, spicy and slightly foresty to sniff, with a lovely silky texture and abundant supple tannins. Oak is in the background. Bright, fresh and loaded with charm and character. (Screwcap)
