Description

Wine Description
Bin 389 was often referred to as ‘Baby Grange’, in part because components of the wines are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange. First made in 1960 by the legendary Max Schubert, this was the wine that helped forge Penfolds reputation with red wine drinkers by combining the structure of cabernet sauvignon with the richness of shiraz. Exemplifying the judicious balance of fruit and oak,Bin 389 highlights the generous mid-palate Penfolds is known for.

COLOUR:
Darkened deep red

NOSE:
Instantly cabernet, exposed by fragrant violet, lavender, blue fruits and the faintest waft of red apple blossom. And yet there’s much more to captivate the olfactory senses, with scented illuminations of:

Baked delights – Danish pastry/croissant and rye bread crust.

A Mediterranean ratatouille – laced with thyme, oregano and pulped olive.

Chamois, new-buck leather.

Cedar – yet any oak presence certainly respectful of fruit.

PALATE:
Medium-bodied.
The complete package:
Fruit: Juicy redcurrant jelly, dark plum (and plum acidity), fresh rhubarb.
Acidity: ‘Just right’ – a lively and lifted conveyance from initial lip-contact to sated ingestion.
Tannins: Integrated, polished-graphite tannins
Oak: Seamlessly hidden/concealed oak. Melding well with fruit.
Overall, cabernet balance and definition, sans exaggeration.
