Penfolds have long maintained a system of numbered ‘bins’ in the cellars at Magill Estate where the first bottled wines were
stored for maturation. The renowned Bin series, first created in 1959, reflects Penfolds meticulous winemaking approach of
sourcing the best fruit from premium vineyards, to marry both regional and varietal characters to the distinctive Penfolds style.
This inaugural Bin 21 Grenache was sourced from vines in the Barossa Valley, some planted as far back as the 1930s. Grenache
has thrived in the soils of the Barossa Valley since the 1840s. The climate of the Barossa Valley is not dissimilar to the warm dry
regions of Europe where the origins of the varietal can be traced. Our first Cellar Reserve Barossa Valley Grenache was made in
2002, and it is still keenly sought by collectors today. This year’s Collection Release marks 21 years since that remarkable wine
was made, thus “21” is the Bin number we have anointed this new Bin wine.

Colour
Bright crimson

Nose
Grenache in all its glory. Red fruits proudly lead the charge: raspberries, cranberries and pomegranate. Fragrant coulis on a
summer berry pudding sprinkled with frozen strawberry dust.
Ferric notes of steel wool and cordite allude to the iron-rich clay soil upon which the vines prosper in the Barossa Valley.
Charcuterie aromas of Jamón Ibérico conjure thoughts of Spanish tapas bars. Mojama dry cured tuna notes add an interesting
slightly saline nuance. Rubbed olive leaves, sumac spice and ginger peel aromas round out a very enticing nose. Oak has been
completely subdued by the generosity of the fruit.

Palate
An approachable, medium bodied palate.
Red fruits are to the fore, strawberries especially, with assorted wild fruit des bois. Refreshing acidity, manifesting as pomegranate
juice and fresh cranberry, provides succulence and balance.
Silken grenache tannins with a parchment, rice paper-like texture holds together the abundantly generous fruit. The composite
elements are united in solidarity.
A delightful debut Bin 21 Grenache.
