Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 750ml
By : Penfold's
PETER GAGO, PENFOLDS CHIEF WINEMAKER:Through thick and thin, across all vintages, </em><em>Bin 389 always delivers—benefitting from over half a century of practiceCertainly a solid Bin 389—Cabernet and Shiraz indistinguishable in their contribution. What do they say... we wouldn’t have it any other way! Created by the legendary Max Schubert—creator 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.- Producer
