Bin 2 Shiraz Mataro is a classic Penfolds wine, steeped in nineteenth-century tradition. Typically it is a generous medium-bodied wine based on shiraz, but shot with the aromatics and muscular strength of mataro. It’s best to drink early, but like many of Penfolds reds can last the distance in the cellar.
Interest in Bin 2 has grown as the popularity of traditional Rhône varieties and blends continues to flourish.
Grape Variety: Shiraz, Mataro (Mouverdre)
Region: South Australia
Food Pairing: BBQ Pork Ribs
Tasting Notes: Deep red in color, Mediterranean notes of savoury ratatouille, sundried tomato, olive tapenade, Moroccan spices and charcoal roasted roast game. Balancing the savoury notes are aromatic blueberries, exotic red fruits, perfumed cranberry and fresh pomegranate. A delightfully complex amalgam of savoury green olives with a hint of sweet/salty Dutch liquorice. Soft blue fruits to the fore with textured tannins providing grip. An expansive palate gives this wine generosity and presence.
