Bin 138 draws its inspiration from the wines of Southern Rhône, where shiraz, grenache and mataro (mourvèdre) are blended in varying proportions to create full-bodied wines possessing rich and heady perfume. The nose is comfortably embedded in the savoury spectrum, scent detected of charcuterie cold meats, a balsamic reduction, fresh fruits elude with air. On the palate, earthy Barossa elements abound, coupled with savoury red meats. An agglomerate of assorted tannin shapes derived from the trio of shiraz, grenache and mataro set the textural stage – in parallel with a juicy/fruity succulence. All three varieties carry their weight, all three generously add to the mix.
