LIVE FROM 8PM: #TWSTaste Australian Opulence, Thursday 21st May, just after 8-9pm

However you like! :smiley: Feel free to do either - I tend to just go with my heart based on how I found the wine on the night, in terms of enjoyment. :slight_smile:

Pure luck really. Great to hear your Bin 28 is in a good place. Once again, I’ve a six pack of the very same in reserves and was wondering when to pull it so your notes are much appreciated, Cheers !

Edit - I’m not scoring, the best criteria for me is would I buy it again, the answer, without any hesitation whatsoever. It’s a terrific wine for £14.50 and the food pairing is as good as any I’ve enjoyed recently chez moi. Can’t say more really !

Generally I rate on the questions do I like and would I buy again?

Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2010

I’ll go with a solid 8/10 for this. Very good and nice with a lot to give, but feel I’ve had better bottles of this wine. However, I haven’t tried it for a few years and maybe my tastes are just changing.

Thank you so much for coming along, everyone! I really enjoyed tonight - some very different experiences at both ends of the scale! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Next week, it’s all about ‘weird’ wines - wines from unusual grapes, styles, regions - so find your wackiest bottle and get exploring!

Thanks so much also to our Australia buyer @Freddy for joining us.

Cheers to you all - and stay safe!

No problem, it is very good and in a good spot, however would expect it to improve over the next couple of years I think (and it will likely live for another 10+ based on other vintages I’ve had. It is soft and very approachable for sure and will be great with any red meat you can chuck at it.

Now that’s interesting as I now favour Spanish wines when previously it was French.

Perhaps a little difficult to separate especially if you have an expensive wine that doesn’t live up to expectations.
