A black core with a barely visible purple rim. Classic Kalimna, with trademark red fruits and a familial old-worldliness. Via: juniper and blackberry fruits, and raspberry stick and red liquorice flavourings. And: a carbon black ‘sumpiness’/quince paste amalgam laced with a ferric/formic piquant lift. Also: possibly oak-induced, barrel-fermented eugenol/pink peppercorn/fresh green-tobacco aromatics. Viscous, Velvety, Voluminous. (Editors note: the BOLD V is deliberate) A ‘tannin tsunami’… riding a ripe and even wave across the palate. Oak totally absorbed, allowing blueberry fruits and a black-pudding textural imprint to stake ownership during this phase.

POINTS
A rare commemorative vintage that marks the 170th birthday of Penfolds, taken from Kalimna Block 3C. A very stylish rendition of rich, dark-berried Barossa shiraz with plenty of mocha and spices on the nose, as well as some tar, herbs and plums. Real dept

Commemorating 170 years of Penfolds and made with grapes from vines around 100 years old, in particular the Kalimna 3C clone, which is a block that almost always makes it into Grange, the deep purple-black colored 2010 Bin 170 Shiraz Kalimna Vineyard Bloc

POINTS
Elegant, expressive and harmonious, with juicy dark berry and plum fruit. The edges are shaded by hints of oatmeal and nutmeg, showing a hint of brown sugar on the long, expressive finish. The layers of richness and the savory character blend seamlessly.
