2014 Bin 389 Cabernet/Shiraz, Penfolds, South Australia

The best value wine in the range in our opinion, with coaxing this has beautiful fruit with an iron oxide backbone. The palate is so young, with graphite, menthol and expressive plum and dark fruit. Incredibly impressive now, it gives just a hint of its future, and shows why it’s now Australia’s most cellared red wine.

TASTING NOTES

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (October 2016)
89/100
Penfolds

Few regions’ wine has been as influenced and defined by one producer as Australia has been by Penfolds. It was founded by an English doctor, Christopher Rawson Penfold, in 1844, a physician who used his port-like wines as medication to his patients’ delight. Nowadays consistency and longevity run throughout their impressive range: from their fortified wines to the affordable bin series, their delicious Chardonnays to the legendary, collectable and sought after Grange, Australia’s finest wine.
