Penfolds Bin 798 RWT Shiraz 2018
“Arguably the most aromatic, complex, generous and balanced Bin 798 RWT vintage of all time. A great Barossa Shiraz with brilliant cellaring potential.
16 months in 64% new and 36% one-year-old French oak hogsheads
Deep crimson. Ethereal pure blackberry pastille roasted chestnut mocha aromas with hint ginger notes. Voluminous and animated wine with dense saturated blackberry dark chocolate fruits, plentiful fine velvety tannins and superb integrated roasted chestnut, mocha vanilla oak complexity. Finishes chocolatey firm. Elemental, powerful and seductive with years ahead of it. Should develop into a classic. Seal”
