A blend of Coonawara cabernet and Barossa shiraz, the Penfolds Bin 90A Cabernet Shiraz is from the renowned 1990 vintage and isan extremely limited release. It showcases Penfolds' dedication to expert multi-regional blending and is a beautiful and unique piece of Penfolds history.
Provenance is crucial when buying wines of this price and age. I purchased this wine at release and have had it stored in my own temperature controlled cellar since that time. The bottle is in immaculate condition. I have only recently decided to offer it for sale.
I tasted a bottle in 2021 and it was still going strong. Primary fruit still evident when it was first opened. Incredible.
"Deep red colour, marked brick-red edges. Very dusty, earthy and dry charcuterie bouquet. Dry Moroccan spices. Lots of nuances here. Very impressive and distinguished wine. Powerful yet soft smooth structure. Delicious. Love the texture of this wine, as well as the licorice, meat stock and dark plum flavours. Great wine with 30 years left in it.Tasted: 03/08/2012. Drink: 2013 to 2042."
