Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz Red Wine 2017 75cl

Penfolds Bin 389 Coonawarra Cabernet Shiraz Red Wine 2017 was 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 is the wine that helped to forge Penfolds solid reputation with red wine drinkers combining the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon with the richness of Shiraz. Bin 389 also exemplifies the judicious balance of fruit and oak.

South Australia experienced a cool and wet winter and spring with conditions providing vines with good soil moisture profiles. Spring was typically windy causing some challenges with fruit set however this did ward off any danger from frost. The prevailing cool conditions extended the growing season with flowering and veraison occurring later than the long-term average. Warmer weather in March was welcomed, allowing grapes to finish ripening with great colours and varietal character.

Initial notes of blackcurrant and cassis on the nose with cabernet-driven aromatics of thyme, cherry-wood, aniseed and finally, wet peppercorn and wet, cold steel. The palate is full and rich with charcuterie meats dominating leading to smooth Madagascan vanilla and liquorice.

Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Peak drinking now - 2030.
