1997 Penfolds Coonawarra Bin 128 Shiraz
Made from 100% Coonawarra Shiraz the wine was matured for 12 months in a combination of new (22%) and used (78%) French oak. Medium weight, lighter than the 1996 with crimson brick red colour. Aromas of vanilla, cedar, spice and plum with an earthy end note. The palate displays the classic Bin 128 elegance with subtle oak integration over plum, spice and mixed berry flavours. Fine grained firmish tannins, well balanced, followed by long cedar, plum and spice aftertaste. The dry tannin influences persist. Cellar 5-8 years.
