Jeremy OliverThis young shiraz is McLaren Vale to a tee, so you might grab it first. Its spicy, peppery and slightly meaty aromas of dark plums, blackberriesand dusty vanilla oak reveal attractive gamey undertones. It’s long and juicy, delivering an intense, pristine expression of vibrant berry/plum flavour framed by fine, smooth and powdery tannins, withplenty of assertive, but well balanced oak. Impressively flavoursome, it’s a deliciously approachable red you can drink now.Winestate Magazine - 5 Star Top in Class Award

Introduced as one of the first Bin wines within the Penfolds portfolio, it has become an Australian classic. Indeed this wine style has universal appeal because of its intense fruit definition, ripe fleshy palate structure and generosity of flavour.
A multi-district blend since the late 1970's it has won "Red Wine of the Year" twice, in 1991 and 1995 at the International Wine Challenge, held each year in London.

Penfolds Bin 128 is one of the most distinctive reds in the Penfolds stable. Firstly, as a 'Coonawarra Shiraz', it is one of the few Penfolds reds that isn't a multi regional blend. It is also matured solely in French oak. French oak generally lends a wine understated, aromatic characters and is therefore a better choice with more subtly flavoured wines.
Coonawarra typically produces zesty, spicy and supple Shiraz fruit that exhibits a richness of flavour and a mouth filling roundness on the palate. Bin 128 is true to this style.
In 1981 the wine changed name from Bin 128 Claret to Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz.

The Pepperjack range is a tribute to the Barossa’s rich heritage. Our winemaking team, headed by Nigel Dolan, has respect for traditional winemaking techniques and is also dynamic and imaginative. The Pepperjack winemakers are conscious of modern wine styles, and are creating wines that reflect our passion for this special region. The Pepperjack wines are rich and honest - showcasing the Barossa’s outstanding qualities.
The Pepperjack Shiraz is rich red in colour with soft purple hues. Aromas of blackberry and plum are supported by pepper and spice characters on the nose. The rich, round, soft palate shows concentrated berry fruit, complex oak and star anise notes. This wine is intricate and elegant with velvety tannins and great length of flavour.
5 Stars , Superb purple-red colour; a lovely medium bodied regional wine; luscious black fruits, dark chocolate and fine tannins, then a very long finish. Best for years

Wine Advocate 90 points! “Gnarly Dudes” delivers notes of pepper, scorched earth, violets, blueberry, and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied wine with excellent blue fruit flavors, bright acidity, but just a bit of narrowness on the mid-palate. The tannins are soft and well-integrated, the finish long and pure. Drink this lip-smacking Shiraz over the next 6 years. Two Hands is a negociant operation run impeccably by Michael Twelftree. It reflects the best that can be sourced from all over South Australia.

McLaren Vale is blessed with a cache of old bush grenache vines. The predominant parcel of grapes featured in this wine are sourced from 81year old vines and the remainder from 46year old vines.

I have a big, moist soft spot for this delicious Barossa red - and have had since the first vintage in the late '90s. Once again, the blend of grenache, mataro and shiraz provides a rich, purple mouthful of spicy berries and a warm (15 per cent alcohol) but soft finish.
Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz has earned a reputation among wine consumers and collectors as an Australian classic, known to many as "Baby Grange". With all its ripe fruit, richness and generosity, the wine has been much loved over several generations of wine drinkers.
Predominantly a Barossa Valley wine at one point, the Bin 389 is now a multi-district South Australian blend with fruit sourced from the Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, Padthaway, McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek and Clare Valley, and more recently, Penfolds' new vineyards in Robe and Bordertown.
Over the last 40 years Bin 389 has developed a strong identity for its consistency, reliability and value. Wine consumers buy it because it's delicious to drink, even when first released. Collectors appreciate it because the wine over-delivers on quality

An intense, elegant and measured red that takes time to open in the glass. Its minty, violet-like perfume of redcurrant, cassis, plums and fresh cedar/vanilla oak overlies a suggestion of dark chocolate and a slightly herbal hint of white pepper. Long, smooth and tightly knit, its vibrant palate of spicy berry and plum-like flavour overlies a dusty, fine-grained spine. It finishes savoury and slightly mineral with a persistent core of fruit. 94 pts
Shiraz - Cab Merlot

Two of Mitolo’s flagship offerings are made from moderately old Shiraz vines in Willunga. Aged 18 months in primarily French oak, the Shiraz G.A.M. is an exceptional example of a precise yet full-flavored, concentrated Shiraz. Its gorgeous perfume of blueberries, blackberries, camphor, licorice and pain grille is followed by an inky/blue/purplecolored wine offering superb purity, full-bodied richness,and gorgeous depth as well as texture. This fabulous effort is another example of Ben Glaetzer’s brilliant talents. It should drink well for 15 years.
While Grange is now seen as the quintessential Australian wine, John Davoren's work with St. Henri is of equal importance. Indeed both these wines set new standards for their day with St. Henri establishing an elegant, perfumed style based on fruit definition and maturation in old oak.
Originally the wines were called 'Penfolds St. Henri Claret', but since 1991, with the release of the 1989 vintage, St. Henri has been labelled varietally. Like Grange, the wines have always been Shiraz driven, with small varying percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Nowadays St. Henri is a multi-district blend drawing Shiraz from the Barossa Valley, Eden Valley, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, the foothills of the Adelaide Hills, and Langhorne Creek. Cabernet Sauvignon, which provides firmness and structure to the St. Henri style, is sourced from the Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and Bordertown.

An Australian Icon - Grange is considered one of the world's finest red wines.
Grange is arguably Australia's most famous wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. Grange boasts an unbroken line of vintages from the experimental 1951 and clearly demonstrates the synergy between Shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia.
Penfolds Grange displays fully ripe, intensely flavoured and textured Shiraz grapes. The result is a unique Australian style that is now recognised as one of the most consistent of the world's great wines. The Grange style is the original and most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy.
