Bin 23’s name is derived from the place the Pinot Noir matures, ‘Cellar 23’ at Magill Estate. Bin 23 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir is a bold, and dynamic inclusion to the Penfolds red wine stable – reflecting an evolving style, regional definition and the complexities of the many and varied clones of Pinot Noir. The relationship between Penfolds and the cool climate, high altitude Adelaide Hills wine region continues to grow from strength-to-strength with this Bin 23 Pinot Noir, following in the footsteps of the success and development of the Penfolds Cellar Reserve Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir.
Lively Adelaide Hills fruit flavours – cherry, strawberry compote/conserve. Oak more apparent than on nose, supportive and judiciously concealed. On the palate softened, silky tannins and a lively yet balanced acid-line throughout impart a velvety texture that coats tongue. As the pour unravels in glass all then becomes increasingly more complex and invoking.
