PENFOLDS BIN 2 SHIRAZ MATARO 2014

$39.99

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.

Description

Colour
Deep plum red.

Nose
Scents of black olive and dark black cherry laced with mixed spices/herbs.
A familial meatiness – Italian pork sausage, pepperoni?
Dark chocolate notes and a skerrick of liquorice.
Aromatically difficult to varietally unscramble the blend… No need.

Palate
Mataro’s green tea-leaf characters immediately apparent, as is Mataro’s inky/rubbly palate imprint.
Grainy/particulate/powdery tannins throughout. Ditto, barely perceptible oak (some vanillin, crushed biscotti flavours).
Evocative Shiraz fruits and savouriness dominate the mid-palate.
Refreshingly medium-bodied, enticingly textured. Drinking strongly endorsed!
