Penfolds Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz 2012
Only wine in the portfolio to see puncheons. All from Maranga in the western Barossa. 14 months in 25% new French oak, 25% new American oak, 25% one year old French oak, 25% American oak. 14.5%. pH 3.67. TA 6.0g/L. $80.
A full, drenched purple red colour. There’s a wonderful redcurrant vibrancy here which lifts it well above the Bin 28. It feels quite pretty and real with the licoricey concentration quite admirable. Sticky tannins and bitter red fruit to finish. I like this – I like the transparency and I like the pure red fruit. It feels the most terroir driven of these Penfolds ‘Bins’, and I like that it carries some of the Maranaga blue fruits about it. 18.5/20, 94/100
