Penfolds Bin 8 Cabernet Shiraz 2016
Colour: Crimson core and vibrant purple highlights at the rim. Nose: Cabernet hallmarks are more prominent than what the composition would suggest ... white pepper, blackberry leaf and punnets of fresh raspberries ascend. Well seasoned carpaccio, brine and sea salt purity…? Red fruits and liquorice, from the Shiraz or the Cabernet? Source unknown! A quintessential Australian blend, yet still "modern" in identity. Palate: Shiraz foundations emerge with generosity and vinous energy. A steely, graphite core and rhubarb succulence imprint. A defined and focussed structure emerges … a trait that is often mentioned across previous vintages of Bin 8 ... it is at home here! At first the tannin structure is grainy, and becomes powder-like in texture upon sitting in the glass…. Hungarian paprika, pomegranate and berry coulis abound. French and American oak each offer support … contributing to the spice spectrum, binding the palate and ensuring compliant tannins.
