Penfolds Bin 51 Riesling 2018

South Australia

  • Product details
    Eden Valley's high altitude and cool climate ensures Riesling with capacity for long-term cellaring and the 2018 vintage quality was exceptional, with lovely varietal flavour and natural acidity.
  • Tasting notes
    The lime and citrus palate is augmented by just ripe Granny Smith apples, cucumber granita and traces of juniper berry. It features a distinct chalky acid presence yet ideally balanced so as not to intrude or distract. It is truly imminently drinkable.

Expert Reviews

Andrew Caillard MW

Vintage 2018 - Pale colour. Fresh rainwater, verbena, lime aromas with rose petal notes. Beautifully balanced wine with fresh lime, bitter lemon, grapefruit flavours, fine looseknit chalky textures, superb mid-palate buoyancy and long indelible yet quartz-like acidity. Intensely aromatic and generously flavoured with a really lovely core of pure fruit and clarity of line. A spectacular Eden Valley Riesling with geosmine-like energy and freshness. Will further develop with age. 97 points – 12% alcohol – Drink Now -2050

Vintage 2018 - A fragrant and floral riesling of generous palate ripeness, stone fruit succulence and honeysuckle complexity. This is a ripe vintage for Bin 51, marked by grainy phenolic structure. One to drink young. Drink 2017-2018.
