Bin 389 is often referred to as ‘Poor Man’s 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 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.

There is a dense cascade of fruit and oak – plums, black currants, olives, cinnamon, pan juices and licorice. Sourced from great vineyards all over South Australia but mainly the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra. Famous for being the most collected and cellared wine in Australia, it ages well for 20 years in top vintages and good conditions and always delivers masses of flavour over a rich, mouth-coating bed of chocolaty tannin.  This is an outstanding wine that deserves to be in your cellar.

'A masculine wine with muscled fruit and rippling tannins, Bin 389 is powerful yet lithe. The 2014s have great freshness and lift. A worthy chip off the Grange block.' Justin Knock MW, Wine Director
