Penfolds Bin 2 Shiraz Mataro 2020
Penfolds Bin 2 is crafted from South Australian Shiraz and Mataro grapes, as it has been since its first vintage in 1960. The original Bin 2 was an ‘Australian Burgundy’ style (despite its Rhône varieties); typically a soft, medium-bodied wine based on the Shiraz grape. The Penfolds Bin 2 blend of Shiraz Mataro is still relatively uncommon in Australian table wines. Also known as Monastrell or Mourvèdre, Mataro was introduced to Australia in the 1830s and is often used in fortified wine production. It is widely planted in the Barossa Valley where it is valued by winemakers for its blending attributes, adding complexity and palate grip.
