Estate Notes

Penfolds' Bin 389 Cabernet/Shiraz is often affectionately referred to as ‘Baby Grange’ because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange.

First introduced in 1960, the Bin 389 Cabernet/Shiraz is sourced from grapes grown in the Barossa Valley, Wrattonbully, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra. The Bin 389 has helped to build Penfolds’ solid reputation, and the latest release of this classic wine admirably justifies its legendary status.

Reviews

“…peerless example of the traditional Aussie blend…richly concentrated, opulent cassis and blackberry fruit. It has a fine, smooth texture, with chocolatey depth, good complexity and spice aplenty, all supported by a fine spine of damson acidity...” Decanter Magazine

“It's dark and stolid, with notes of cassis and blackberry along with touches of vanilla and cedar. Full-bodied and dense, it's firmly in the Penfolds style and the style of this particular bottling, which always ages well…” eRobertParker.com
