Bin 389 is often referred to as '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, by the legendary Max Schubert, 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 judiciously balancing fruit and oak.
Grapes: 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Shiraz
Region: Australia / South Australia / Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale
Maker: Peter Gago
Notes: An exotic and unctuous mix of dates, prunes, and other Middle-Eastern dried fruits. Spices abound – musk, mustard powder, curry vanillin, Moroccan spices; dried herb. Confiture, marzipan, liquorice and aniseed flavours couple with those of roasted white meats - enhanced by barrel fermentation, sensitive oak accompaniment. Slatey tannins (not blocky) are splashed unobtrusively, yet propel length and character. Complete.
Serve: At 16-18c serve with lamb, pan-fried pork, milawa chicken and barbecued meats
