Created in the 1990s as part of the evolving Penfolds white wine development program, Bin 51 captures many of the attributes of the Eden Valley locale. When opened and swirled mandarin, lemon cordial and orange blossom aromatics are immediately unleashed on the nose. Upon closer inspection, hints of lavender talc, lychee and the faintest waft of cardamom spice. On the palate, tempting flavours of lemon tea cake, apple strudel with jasmine florals and Tahitian lime leaf round out a palate nevertheless still enlivened by chalky acidity. ‘Softened’ and very approachable now. Recommend more immediate drinking, with medium-term Eden Valley Riesling cellarability. Peak drinking Now - 2026.
