2011 Bin 389 Cabernet/Shiraz, Penfolds, South Australia

2011 Bin 389 Cabernet/Shiraz, Penfolds, South Australia

Often referred to as “Baby Grange” by virtue of the fact that the young wine is matured in barrels in which Grange was the previous incumbent. Extra stardust is derived as a result of no Bin 707 being produced this year, hence fruit destined for that iconic wine makes up a proportion of the Bin 389 blend. A near 50 / 50 mix of Cabernet and Shiraz sourced from the McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley, aged for 12 months in a combination of French and American oak hogsheads. The wine opens on a wonderfully inviting medley of mocha, Christmas cake and liquorice, enswathed by firm, ripe tannins and vibrant acidity lending lift to the savoury finish promising excellent development potential. Little wonder this is the most cellared wine in Australia.
