Penfolds Bin 389, Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2020




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 forge Penfolds reputation with red wine drinkers by combining the structure of cabernet sauvignon with the richness of shiraz. Balance of the sweet (cabernet) and the savoury (shiraz). Darker fruits closer to that of a black cherry liqueur and rich black forest cake, substantial and intense.
