Bin 138 Barossa Valley Shiraz Grenache Mataro 2018

Bin 138 draws its inspiration from the wines of Southern Rhône, where shiraz, grenache and mataro (mourvèdre) are blended in varying proportions to create full-bodied wines possessing rich and heady perfume.

Each year fruit for Bin 138 is sourced from old Barossa Valley vines (some more than 100 years old) and then matured for 12 to 15 months in seasoned oak hogsheads to allow the different varietals to shine through. The first vintage release of this varietal blend was the 1992, labelled ‘Old Vine Barossa Valley’ – it was then elevated to Bin status with the 1998 vintage.

Colour
Bright garnet red

Nose
Raspberry-leaf and pastille fruits (blackberry) jostle to the fore.
Barossa boot polish high-notes arise – ever so discretely!
Scents of delightfully appealing, almost pungent salty prosciutto/cassoulet/beef ragu/osso buco ... stock(s)?
A quince jelly and inky-berried aromatic sign-off at this early stage of bottle maturation. More to be revealed over time

Palate
Juicy, dense and more-ish - a sophisticated varietal and regional matrix unfolds, stamped with Barossa integrity.
But, what from what? Best guess: ironstone – from shiraz and a continuum of fresh red and dark berried fruits from its grenache and mataro stablemates.
Super-fine tannins permeate across the palate, no doubt contributed by all three varieties. Background oak ever so distant.
Lingers.
