Penfolds Bin 8 Cabernet Shiraz is a wine from South Australia,region of Australia
,The South Australian wine industry is responsible for more than half the production of all Australian wine. South Australia has a vast diversity in geography and climate which allows the state to be able to produce a range of grape varieties from the light Riesling in the Clare Valley to the big, full bodied Shiraz wines of the Barossa Valley.
Since the 1960s, Australia's labeling laws have used an appellation system known as the Australian Geographical Indication (AGI or geographical indication) which distinguishes the geographic origins of the grape. Under these laws, at least 85% of the grapes must be from the region that is designated on the label. The vineyards of South Australia are classified into several major zones: -Barossa: Eden Valley, more and more famous for its Rieslings, and Barossa Valley, producing one of the best Shiraz in the world -Mount Lofty Ranges: Clare Valley, known for its aromatic whites, the coastal and cooler Adelaide Hills, and Adelaide Plains, hot and flat. -Fleurieu: Currency Creek, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale and Southern Fleurieu -Limestone Coast: Coonawarra, Mount Benson, Mount Gambier, Padthaway, Robe and Wrattonbully. - The Riverlands: highly irrigated land where a large percentage of Australia's bulk and box wines are produced. -Southern Flinders Ranges
One of the most cultivated grape variety in the world. Often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, it is grown in nearly every wine producing country, thanks to its hardy constitution. It can be identified by its thick skin and some low yields. In a blend, Cabernet-Sauvignon brings tannins, structure and acidity, which are the keys to a perfectaging process. Californian Nappa Valley has espacially well worked this varietal, which is the main factor of its extrordinary recognition and success. Known for its vegetal flavors such as mint and eucalyptus, Cabernet Sauvignon can turn a wine with herbaceous dominances if harvested too green.
is the name given to the dark-skinned Syrah grape when grown in Australia and selected areas of the New World. Shiraz is so important to Australian viticulture that it is the most planted grape variety in the majority of Australian vineyards and is virtually synonymous with wine regions such as the Barossa Valley.The term Shiraz has its roots in the New World, and the prevailing style of Shiraz winemaking reflects this heritage. Bright fruit flavors (blueberries, black cherries) and silky, soft tannins are characteristics of modern Shiraz wines. Secondary notes of chocolate lend themselves well to the full-bodied texture of these wines, often accented by pepper and spicy inflections. During the 1990s and early 2000s a lot of Australian Shiraz were characterized by highly extracted, super-ripe wines. Between 2000 and 2010, a new generation of wines began to emerge, working towards the elegant spicy style of the northern Rhone Valley.
