Penfolds Bin 23 Pinot Noir 2022 750ml
Bin 23 derives its name from 'Cellar 23' at Magill Estate, where Pinot Noir barriques are often stored during maturation. It follows in the footsteps of the Penfolds Cellar Reserve Pinot Noir, a wine first made from Adelaide Hills grapes in 1997. Reflecting an evolving style, regional definition and complexities of the many and varied Pinot Noir clones, Bin 23 Pinot Noir is an elegant, lighter bodied inclusion in the Penfolds Collection. The relationship between Penfolds and cool-climate regions continues to evolve with fruit sourcing shifting to the island of Tasmania, famed for its pristine environment and quality grapes. A lovely texture on the palate, with fine, delicate tannins and just ripe phenolics. Steely acidity drives the length providing succulent minerality. Cherry pips, sour cherry and cranberry are complemented by an Aperol-like bitterness on the finish. Very seductive, the second glass beckons. A versatile wine to pair with food, especially duck and other game dishes.
