Bin 8 has been crafted in the traditional Penfolds style. Ripe, balanced fruit flavours are supported by softly integrated oak resulting in an impressive, smooth red wine. It was introduced in response to a heightened interest in shiraz and cabernet blends – a classic Australian wine style that caught the attention of the international wine media.

60% Shiraz, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon

Commercial description
"The impression of chocolate Tiramisu and cocoa powder on the nose is very alluring. Dark chocolate custard, blue and black berries and exotic baking spices compete for attention. Shiraz playing a dominant role on the aromatic spectrum. Boysenberry ice-cream flavours flesh out the sumptuous palate, bolstered by Moroccan tagine spices and cumin roasted pumpkin. Earthy spices are rounded out by an invigorating red currant succulence. Tannins are powdery, clearly showing the influence of cabernet sauvignon. A very focussed wine with plenty of flesh ably supported by well-integrated oak"
