Description

Bin 2 was first released in 1960 but was discontinued during the white wine boom of the 1970s. Originally made in an 'Australian Burgundy' style (much like the Seppelt Chalambar) the blend of Shiraz and Mourvedre is still relatively uncommon, with the Mourvedre adding firm tannins to go with the plush Barossa, McLaren Vale and Padthaway Shiraz.

Smells

A sweet and fragrant nose of liquorice, dessicated coconut, red currant jelly and cherry.

Tastes

The winemakers call this "Jamaican raisined dark chocolate" which sounds about right - tea leaf and well integrated vanillin oak characters compliment cured meat and blackcurrant. Enjoy with hearty fare between now and 2027."
