Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2013, Australia
A ‘textbook’ wine. Anyone who wants to understand what makes Australian Shiraz special find it here. The confidence, the elegance and sheer quality. It mixes the things you’d expect like ripe currant fruit and chocolate aromas with things you don’t. Earthiness, gaminess and savoury spice. Yes, it’s an eminently steak-able wine, but be confident. That elegance makes this a versatile food matcher.
