Penfolds Bin 23 Pinot Noir 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Penfolds Bin 23 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir derives its name from Maturation Cellar 23 at Magill Estate. Bin 23 is a bold style reflecting its regional definition, showing the complexities of the many & varied clones of PinotNoir. The relationship between Penfolds and the cool climate, high altitude Adelaide Hills wine region continues to shine.

Penfolds, founded in 1844 by Mary and Dr. Penfold (Mary gets top billing since she took care of most of the early management and winemaking responsibilities), has completely revolutionized not only its own product lines throughout the years, but also many wines in Australia as a whole.

  Tired of boring old wines from Australia? No? Then you can probably thank Penfolds Wines. Penfolds, founded in 1844 by Mary and Dr. Penfold (Mary gets top billing since she took care of most of the early management and winemaking responsibilities), has completely revolutionized not only its own product lines throughout the years, but also many wines in Australia as a whole. The wine produced by Penfolds was originally prescribed as tonic wines for anaemic patients, with the wine made from Grenache. By 1870, with 60 acres under vine, they were producing many more wines. In the 1920s and 1930s, Penfolds was known for its fortified wine, like many other wineries in the area. 1943 marked the start of a massive expansion for Penfolds Winery, with first the acquisition of Auldana Vineyard and its winery, and then the purchase of Kalimna Vineyard in 1945. By the end of the decade, they owned vineyards in McLaren Vale, Griffith, the Hunter Valley, and Minchinbury. Around the same time, winemaker Max Schubert returned from oversees with a completely new vision for the future of the winery. In the 50s, he started experimenting with the red wine he called Grange, which is a mix of primarily Shiraz and a little Cabernet Sauvignon, and by the 1960s the wine had spread across the Australian wine industry. Not wanting to stop with merely one of the most successful wine projects in the history of Australia, Penfolds Wines started the “White Grange” project in the 1990s, leading to the immensely popular and publicized release of the Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay. Peter Gago became their Chief Winemaker in 2002, and he, along with three winemakers in charge of red wine and one in charge of white, continue the tradition of experimentation and evolution.

Deep bright red. High-pitched aromas of strawberry raspberry and Asian spices complemented by a subtle smoky quality. Zesty and precise with tangy red berry flavors showing good focus a slight tartness and a touch of allspice. Finishes on a sweet note with good bite and tangy persistence. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Bin 23 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir - Penfolds: Bin 23 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir - Rotwein von PenfoldsFür einen Pinot Noir besitzt er eine ungewöhnlich tiefes und dunkles Rot. Sein Duft präsentiert sich opulent, sehr vielschichtig und bereits wunderschön geöffnet mit Aromen von saftigen dunklen Kirschen, Nelken, Wacholder, Zedernholz und Leder. Sanft abgerundete Tannine und eine elegant eingebundene Holznote verleihen dem Wein mit seiner ohnehin großartigen Länge am Gaumen noch mehr Fülle. Der Gaumen wird von einem Bukett aus süßem Waldbeerkompott, Rhababer und roter Beete verwöhnt.  Obwohl der ungewohnt kraftvolle Bin 23 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir von Penfolds bereits jetzt sehr zugänglich ist, besitzt er durchaus Lagerpotential.Weingut: PenfoldsLand: AustralienRegion: Barossa ValleyRebsorte: Pinot NoirInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol.%Gesamtsäure: 6,0 g/lRestsüße: trockenLagerfähigkeit: 10 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 bis 18°C Barossa Valley

Deep, dark (for pinot) red-purple; abundant plum and black cherry fruit plus firm tannins; a medium-bodied wine that ventures far into dry red territory; possible that bottle age may let pinot varietal flavour peep out. James Halliday. A Pinot Noir wine from South Australia in Australia. 2009 Penfolds Pinot Noir Bin 23 750ml
