About this winery

The success of Penfolds has been driven by the generations of visionaries and innovators.

Production notes

Bin 51 captures many of the 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 world-class riesling and Eden Valley always features.

Tasting notes

COLOUR : Very pale straw with luminous green hues. NOSE :A kaleidoscopic ascent of citrus derivatives - lemon sherbet is the first to be impatiently released; later, at their own pace and more assuredly, notes of Tahitian lime and lemon verbena. And then there's more - scents of citrus bath salts/fresh linen and lemongrass ... No shortage of highly aromatic descriptors remain, primarily a beguiling limestone-talc lift, yet it's the freshness and vitality of another retronasal engagement that impresses further - freshly-cut flowers, freshly-cut fennel, freshly-sliced cucumber, sea spray. PALATE :No shortage of flavour, yet as noted in the commentary above, it's the fineness and purity of this youthful riesling that immediately impacts upon that first sip. If we were to proactively and immediately leap to the other end of the palate - it certainly finishes exactingly clean and 'soft'. Be assured, no lack of acidity, no lack of attaque ... albeit gently.
