- 91 Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Joe Czerwinski: "One of the few Penfolds reds matured exclusively in French oak, the 2018 Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz shows a fair bit of vanilla and cedar on the nose, complemented by blueberries, raspberries and peppery spice. Medium to full-bodied, it's not as big or rich as the other Shiraz in the portfolio, but it's attractive for its smooth, silky feel and intricate spice shadings. It should drink well for at least a decade."
- 93 Punkte WINESPECTATOR, MaryAnn Worobiec: "Dense, complex and bold, this fragrant red shows Szechuan peppercorn, black licorice, dried violet, sweet paprika and fine cocoa powder mingling with dense blackberry, dried blueberry and chocolate-covered cherry flavors. The tannins are firm but fine-grained. Drink now through 2035."
- 91 Punkte DECANTER, David Sly: "Generous in body and aroma, this presents a heavily laden berry patch with abundant ripe fruits and a heady waft of violets, iodine and sage. While this big-berry presence fills the front palate, there is a regiment of stern black tannins that pull the structure abruptly back into line. With its ungainly top and tail currently teetering on a high wire, this needs time in the bottle to find its balance. RRP £34.99 Drinking Window 2022 – 2035"
- 94 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "Quite a classic Coonawarra with cooler red-fruit tones, as well as a distinctive, eucalyptus thread to the sappy yet ripe red plums. The palate has a very sleek, intense and concentrated core of red-plum and blackcurrant flavors with very finely groomed tannins. So complete and effortlessly powerful, in an elegant frame. Will age very well. Drink or hold. Screw cap."

|Notizen des Weinguts:||With each vintage release the cool-climate Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz provides an interesting counterpoint to the more opulent and richly concentrated warm climate Kalimna® Bin 28 Shiraz. Bin 128 comprises fruit sourced from the unique terra rossa soils of Coonawarra, a region that exemplifies the perfume, transparency and seductive nature of cool-climate red table wines. Coonawarra has remained the source of shiraz fruit for Bin 128 since the inaugural release of the 1962 vintage. In order to further enhance the regional qualities of Bin 128, the wine is matured in a mixture of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads, élevage that was refined during the 1980’s when the transition was made from American to French oak. Nose An assortment of gamey scents (to remind of an Italian salumeria!) – cured venison, sweet smell of bresaola, and finocchiona (salami with fennel seeds). Not to preclude the local – a suggestion of kangaroo prosciutto, yet a definite assertion of the red dust of regional Coonawarra. Redcurrant – crushed raspberry/cherry pip and a dried herb crustiness – thyme flowers? Certainly quite a bit arising from the glass ... Coonawarra complexity! Flavours and Palate Medium-bodied – well-proportioned, yet not big. Layered. Appetising, juicy ... laced with cracked black pepper, red spices (Hungarian paprika) and caraway. A skerrick of (cherrywood) oak and brick-dust tannins – verging on chalky Fruits evident, yet the savouries beckon greater attention (glazed meats, green olive, capers). Yet another manifestation of the flavours and structure of cooler-climate French oak-matured shiraz ... channelled via a Penfolds winemaking lens. Coonawarra, South Australia Coonawarra, on South Australia’s Limestone Coast, is a flat, isolated region almost mid-point between Adelaide and Melbourne. The area enjoys a cool maritime climate - similar to that of Bordeaux - and is renowned for its unique terra rossa soil. Rich, rust coloured soils… crimson sunburnt faces… magenta sunsets: this is red wine country! While Coonawarra is famous for its rich, minty Cabernet, the area also produces Shiraz and Merlot and surprisingly good Chardonnay and Riesling. Vintage Conditions Coonawarra enjoyed near long-term average winter rainfall, and slightly below average spring rainfall. Following a frost event on November 4th, the region welcomed warmer temperatures across the remainder of the month, +3.6°C above the long-term average thanks to a combination of high minimum and maximum temperatures. Coonawarra experienced 13 days of temperature greater than 35°C during the months of January, February and March, with the longest spell spanning 3 days (17th – 19th January). The hottest day recorded was 42°C on January 19th. From December to mid-April conditions were very dry, delivering only 50mm, which is half the normal rainfall. Consequently, there was no disease pressure. Mild conditions prevailed over the harvest, which allowed grapes to ripen with optimal flavour and fine tannins. An excellent season for Coonawarra shiraz.|
