The Penfolds Bin 138 GSM 2020 features an abundance of flavoursome fruit. Multi-faceted and enchanting. A gentle swirl reveals a complex aromatic exhibit of sweet, scented fruits and warm, savoury notes. Bin 138 draws its inspiration from the wines of Southern Rhone, where shiraz, grenache and mataro (mourvedre) are blended in varying proportions to create full-bodied wines possessing rich and heady perfume. Each year fruit for Bin 138 is sourced from Barossa Valley vines and then matured for 12 months in seasoned and a small proportion of new oak hogsheads to allow the different varietals to shine through. The first vintage release of this varietal blend was the 1992, labelled ‘Old Vine Barossa Valley’ – it was then elevated to Bin status with the 1998 vintage.

Grape Variety






Wine Style

Red - juicy, smooth, medium-bodied


Fine savoury tannins, dark fruit and generosity across the mid-palate. Grenache tannins, exotic red fruits and lively acid provide ample tension. Mataro plays the anchor role, binding the palate into a harmonious balance with dusty, textural, mouth filling tannins. The tannins combined feel massaged and ground, quietly confident. The acidity is fresh and enticing. The palate is plush, complete. A generous, balanced all-rounder. Certainly not over extracted or pumped up. All together an enticing, complex, evolving wine, with a creamy texture, lively freshness and a willingness to delight from the first sip.

”The percentages of the three varieties weren't revealed, but the region is 100% Barossa Valley, and the 12 months' maturation was in French hogsheads (12.5% new). A good wine in the traditional Bin 138 mould. Drink now or later.”
