The Bin 51 Story

Bin 51 was created in the 1990s as part of the evolving Penfolds white wine development program. The first vintage in 1999 was labelled Eden Valley Reserve Bin Riesling. The evolution of Penfolds Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling opens another chapter in a long history of Penfolds involvement in winemaking from this variety.

Awards & Accolades

    Andrew Caillard | The Vintage Journal

    "Pale colour. Pure camomile, verbena, lime, lemon curd aromas with hint yeasty notes. Well composed wine with classical pure round lemon, lime flavours, fine lacy textures and fine crystalline acidity. Finishes long and minerally. Bittersweet notes give lovely vinosity. Very good volume despite the moderate to low alcohol. Drink now to 2030. 11.5% alc"

    Erin Larkin |  Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    "The 2022 Bin 51 Riesling is talcy and floral and lacy on the nose, with green apple, a hint of pear skin, lanolin and saline acidity threaded throughout. This has a generosity and plushness to it, all contained within a web of fine phenolics. This is pithy and über fine. So good. 2022 in the Eden Valley was excellent: an extension of the cool and even season experienced in 2021, quality is high and nuanced detail is inherent in these wines. Drink it now, or cellar it for a decade or more. Up there as one of the best Bin 51s we've seen – 94+ points."

Wine & Vintage Details

Vintage Conditions 

Winter rainfall was plentiful, ensuring optimal soil moisture profiles leading into spring. Conditions during spring and summer were significantly cooler than average with no summer heatwaves recorded. This is something of a luxury for white winemakers, allowing for an extended slow ripening period leading into an orderly harvest. The extra hang-time allowed for terrific varietal flavour and aroma development, with the retention of racy natural acidity. A tremendous vintage for riesling.

Vineyard & Winemaking Details

Peter Gago - Chief Winemaker

Peter joined the winemaking team in 1989, initially in the craftsmanship of sparkling wines, before moving on to reds as Penfolds Red Wine Maker. In 2002 Peter became the fourth ever Chief Winemaker for Penfolds. Together with his fellow winemakers, Peter’s careful custodianship has ensured that Grange and the other ‘older’ members of the Penfolds family, have continued to set the benchmark for their style and quality, while new additions to the range push the boundaries ever wider.
