Interesting contrast to the Penfolds Kalimna 1998. Both clearly from the same stable with Penfolds density of fruit, heavy oak and added acid – not over-blown but tight, built for age. The Kalimna is warmer, with more sweetness – showing Barossa fruit and American oak. The Bin 128 is more savoury, French oaked. All to be expected I suppose, but that overriding family similarity is more than I expected.
