Created in the 1990’s as part of the evolving Penfolds white wine development program, Bin 51 captures many attributes of the Eden Valley locale. The region’s high altitude and cool-climate induces riesling with great finesse and elegance with a capacity for long-term cellaring. South Australia has gained worldwide recognition for producing definitive world-class riesling and Eden Valley always features. In their youth, the wines possess scented floral and citrus aromas, with a mineral edge and marked natural acidity, contributing significantly to the palate texture and flavour.

Aromatics instantly propelled from glass – white florals, star fruit, lemon sherbet, green lime and lime pith. Definitively Eden Valley – convincingly confirmed by subtle Meyer lemon blossom wafting above classic Eden Valley bath salts and talc. Fresh and vibrant. Inviting. Engaging. PALATE An initial breadth of flavor (freshly squeezed lime and other citrus derivatives) – yet structurally remaining tightly defined. Round and generous. Soft (lacy) acidity conveys fruit, adding persistence, length. Great drinkability and great balance. Deceptively powerful.

Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Drinking window now – 2027.
