Pen­folds Bin 51 Eden Val­ley Ries­ling 2015

Pen­folds has made great reds since the 1960s, great chardon­nays for 10 years and with the re­lease of the 2015 vintage, its ries­ling world has changed.

This is a great Aus­tralian Ries­ling, be­ing softer, fuller and more gen­er­ous than any prior re­lease, with both an age-wor­thy firm acid back­bone and great length.

The wine has racy and classy acid­ity and a bril­liant and cleans­ing fin­ish and af­ter-taste.

As com­pared to most ries­lings, it brims with life, has de­light­ful fra­grant and lifted aro­mat­ics, lingers re­fresh­ingly and is long, de­li­cious and mouth­wa­ter­ing.

The 2015 Pen­fold Bin 51 and the 2014 Hen­schke Julius are the two finest Aus­tralian ries­lings that we have tried since the 2013 Grosset Pol­ish Hill.

This is Pen­folds best ever ries­ling.

18.5 points and RRP $29.
