Winemaker's Notes:

Created by the legendary Max Schubert - creator of Penfolds grange - Bin 389 is often referred to as ‘Poor Man’s grange’ or ‘Baby grange’, in part because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of grange. First made in 1960, this was the wine that helped to build Penfolds’ solid reputation with red wine drinkers. Combining the structure of cabernet with the richness of shiraz. Bin 389 also exemplifies Penfolds’ skill in balancing fruit and oak. A classic australian style with a clear Penfolds identity. Colour: Dense, deep red. Nose : Vibrant, lively aromas are immediately apparent without any need to swirl the glass. aromas of mocha meshed with concentrated Satsuma plum, liquorice and cold meats. Subtle smoky oak and background florals complete the offering. Palate: Full flavoured and persistent across the palate and displaying great balance between fruit, oak, acid and tannin. Blackberry and blackcurrant fruit flavours, courted by mouth puckering cabernet tannins, effortlessly convey chocolatey, mocha flavours and cedary oak. a classic Bin 389, right up there with the best, with long term cellaring potential of over twelve years. Wine analysis alc/Vol: 14.50% acidity: 6.50g/l ph: 3.55 Food Matches: ideally suited to Beef, Duck & game, lamb.
