THE PENFOLDS COLLECTION

BIN 51 EDEN VALLEY RIESLING 2021

Created in the 1990’s as part of the evolving Penfolds white wine development program, Bin 51 captures many 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 definitive world-class riesling and Eden Valley always features. In their youth, the wines possess scented floral and citrus aromas, with a mineral edge and marked natural acidity, contributing significantly to the palate texture and flavour.

Winery 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.

What of the mid-palate, flavours? Certainly a highlight – finger lime, lemon/lime zest, again sherbet, juniper berries, mirin,

and a slatey/crushed marble chalkiness.

Eden Valley riesling attired in its Sunday-best.

Winery Profile

Australia's winemaking history of less than two hundred years is brief by European measures though, like Europe, punctuated by periods of extreme success and difficult times. From the earliest winemaking days Penfolds has figured prominently and few would argue the importance of Penfolds' influence on Australia's winemaking psyche.

Without the influence of Penfolds the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer.

Penfolds' reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend. But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times.

If there is anything traditional about Penfolds, it is the practice of constantly reviewing the wines it already does well, and continuously evolving and refining styles as vineyards mature and access to ever older and more varied vineyard sites improves.
