Description

Bin 138 is Penfolds’ homage to the wines of the Southern Rhone, where Grenache Shiraz/Syrah and Mourvedre form a potent and harmonious blend in famous AOCs like Chateauneuf du Pape and Gigondas. The 2018 blend is 68% Shiraz, 22% Grenache and 10% Mataro, the wine more serious than in past years, showing heightened structure and longevity.

Smells

The intense pastille notes of Grenache lead the nose, with cherry, liquorice, leather and cured meats.

Tastes

Supple, rounded and spicy, with heady layers of dark brambly berry fruit, fig and pomegranate. Big, ripe tannins frame the long, pure finish of what looks set to be a very long-lived 138. Giving immediate pleasure on release, it has all the concentration, structure and acid balance to carry it through a long and complex life to 2026 if well stored.
