Region: Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, Wrattonbully, Robe, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Adelaide Hills - South Australia.
Drink Until: 2040
Varieties: 51% Cabernet, 49% Shiraz.
Alcohol: 14.5%
Foods: Try with Dry-aged grass-fed Longhorn beef rib eye, charred swede, wilted warrigal greens, caramelised oat emulsion.
Oak: Matured for 14 months in new (40%), 1 year-old (20%) and 2 year-old (20%) American oak hogsheads.
Colour: Vibrant blood-red with a staining dark core.
Nose: Complete. Initially difficult to separate aromatic components. Must be Bin 389! With aeration, an evocative barrel-ferment character separates above, prunefigdatesquince beneath, bridged by soyhoisin sauce notes. A pronounced freshness is immediately apparent. Scents of char-grilled, Italian vegetables (zucchini, eggplant) fleetingly distract. Stylish, and regardless of whether either ee or oo are used, both breeding and brooding are apt descriptors.
Palate: Full-bodied. A vinous web of cola, newly-tanned leather and dark-berried fruits. Minimal structural weave little flavour space to fill, no gaps. Cabernet and Shiraz dovetail effortlessly. Vibrant, with a tangy freshness augmented by sculptured tannins, lively acidity, and respectful oak. Length, weight and texture sit well.

Background:

Bin 389 is often referred to as Poor Mans 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, 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. Download as PDF
