About this winery

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

Tasting notes

Very lime – citrus driven palate augmented by just ripe Granny Smith apple, cucumber granita and traces of juniper berry. A distinct chalky acid presence noted, yet ideally balanced so as not to intrude or distract.

Viticultural notes

Above average winter rainfall in Eden Valley provided good soil moisture profiles leading into spring. Drier conditions then prevailed from September through to April which was 22% down on the long-term average. Spring provided ideal conditions for flowering and fruit set while the growing season experienced temperatures above the long-term average, with twelve summer days recorded above 35°C.

Winemaking notes

Three months in stainless steel.

Super tight and flinty aromas with a burst of lime and pithy grapefruit and plenty of spicy spark. The palate is taut and succulent, showing slightly chalky texture and lime, apple and green-pear flavors, delivered with power through the finish. Prominent acidity. Drink now, but better as a 5 to 6-year-old wine.

Joe Czerwinski,

Classic lime sherbet notes mark the nose of the 2018 Riesling Bin 51. It's leafy and fresh, then folds in hints of riper fruit on the palate, such as peach and pear. Crushed stone and wet moss give it a firm grounding in the earth as well. Crisp, lean and long, it shimmers with positive sunshine and energy, vibrant and lingering on the finish.

Tangy mango and Key lime flavors are bright and refreshing, showing an appealing fleshy side to balance the racy acidity. Fresh ginger, subtle beeswax and pear drop notes linger on the complex, expressive finish. Drink now. 531 cases imported. — MW
