Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2020, Australia
Dry red wine, 75cl. Full bodied 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Shiraz from South Australia. 14.5% ABV.
Bin 389 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 was the wine that helped forge Penfolds reputation with red wine drinkers by combining the structure of cabernet sauvignon with the richness of shiraz. Exemplifying the
judicious balance of fruit and oak, Bin 389 highlights the generous mid-palate Penfolds is known for.
