Background
Bin 65 is a very special bottling to celebrate winemaker and viticulturist Rob Gibson’s 65th Birthday in 2016. A barrel selection of benchmark Barossa Shiraz blended with small parcels of premium Eden Valley Shiraz and Barossa Cabernet for depth and complexity. Bin 65 is one of those charming wines Rob likes to drink with friends, hand selected from the very best components available at the time. As Rob approaches his 50th Vintage, this wine is a living testament to his extensive experience in viticulture, winemaking and careful blending to produce the best of his beloved Barossa.
Vineyard Notes
Vintage conditions in 2015 were exceptional. Early temperatures in October and November were well above average, enhancing rapid flavor development. Mild dry ripening conditions later combined with low yields leading to good varietal expression in Shiraz and some sheltered blocks of Cabernet. Barossa harvest was very early. Grape parcels were individually fermented in open fermenters and matured for 26 months in new French Oak hogsheads.
Tasting Notes
An entertaining symphony of flavours, building over time, Bin 65 will reward careful cellaring for the nexBin 65 gleams vibrant in the glass with opaque dark red black colour. The aroma offers subtle yet complex savoury notes of cedar and spice and the palate is lively, bright & full, with charming balance and fruit sweetness. The wine finishes beautifully dry with lingering plums, sweet oak and rosemary. t 20+ years.
