2018 Penfolds Bin 149 'Wine of the World' Cabernet Sauvignon
Classically Penfolds in character, yet altogether different in structure. Fine, close-knit tannins awaken the palate and a menthol lift surprises. Varietally-correct flavours are framed by typical oak offerings: cedar, sandalwood and roasted meats. Alcohol is firmly anchored within the matrix, unobtrusive and in proportion. Acidity is bright, offers plentiful energy and is undoubtedly responsible for the succulence and sustained finish.
