Penfolds Bin 95 "Grange" Shiraz 2016

Grape: 100% Shiraz

Region: South Australia, Australia

Nose: A fusion of preserved figs, black plum, blackberry and black liquorice flirts with an aromatic elution of fish oil, anchovy, soy and sesame/nori. An uplifting freshness and higher notes are liberated with air – awakened scents akin to cola, Chinotto, aniseed, root beer.

Palate: The palate is full-bodied with adequate balance and style and a goregeous length. Oak conceded, effortlessly merging with blue and black fruits and dark chocolate/mocha notes. Solid, malleable tannins, with an exacting acid coupling, serve to polish and elevate;

Finish: Creamy/velvety, tannins are tight with a ‘rusty’ edge. Ebullient acidity, whilst lively and racy, is well-managed.
