Even though I’m a life long buyer and drinker of Penfolds I’ve had very little experience with Bin 2 which is a Shiraz Mourvèdre blend (89%/11%). Dusty Black cherry notes with a little raspberry. These aromatics carry through to the medium plus bodied palate finishing with grainy tannins. A little astringency at the end, probably because of its youth (in Penfolds terms at least). Could easily go for another 5 years but nothing wrong with drinking one now. — 19 days ago
Absolutely stunning. Consumed on the eve of my 39th birthday. (I am an 82 and my birth year wines are becoming increasing hard to find. This one was purchased as a complete OWC from a private cellar and perfectly stored.)
This bottle was so fresh and immaculately stored. The cork came out beautifully. Dark dark color still. Right off the bat the nose screams PENFOLDS GRANGE with eucalyptus, tar, smoked meats and abundant DARK fruit. A gorgeous wine with years and years left ahead of it.
Tasted alongside 1982 Chateau Margaux from the cellar and we all found the 1982 Grange to be the superior wine. It left my mouth watering. Absolutely beautiful and one of the top two or three wines I’ve ever tasted of not the best — 25 days ago
Quite delicate with traces of vanilla oak. Green melon, grapefruit and citrus on show. Light to medium weight palate. A well made Wine which won the Pam Dunsford Trophy for Best Chardonnay at the Limestone Coast Wine Show. Good QPR. Drink now or cellar for a few years. Bought this at the Cellar Door in March when we went to Bellwether in Coonawarra for vintage. — 8 days ago
See previous notes for Little Wine #6. In summary very dark Ruby with purple tinges. Opaque. Luscious mouth filling Shiraz - the old vine source is obvious - soft, plush and plummy. A blend of 2016, 2015, 2013 and 2012 - all good vintages. I took delivery of my allocation of Little Wine #10 recently. — 21 days ago
