Pen­folds Bin 150 Marananga Shi­raz 2008. RRP $49.99

The Press - Zest - - Reviews - KIRK HAR­G­REAVES

Be­ing a huge believer in the mantra ‘‘buy Kiwi made’’, it al­most pains me to sing the praises of an Aussie im­port, but I must en­dure. This stuff is truly top shelf and worth ev­ery penny. It was har­vested from vines in the Marananga district of the Barossa Val­ley and aged in Amer­i­can and French oak. It oozes cher­ries, choco­late and cof­fee wrapped around firm tan­nins. If you’re of strong char­ac­ter you’ll fight the temp­ta­tion and let it sit longer. It’s only go­ing to get bet­ter!
