Winemaker Notes

Deep dark magenta. A first impression of dark fruits and chocolate,splashed by spices – cinnamon, vanillin pod, cola. Then, a transient umami dabble – via cues of Worcestershire sauce/smoked Barossa bacon/beef cube. To follow, a bruleed lift mirrored by scents oftoasted brioche, soaked oats. Intriguingly different, yet still Bin 389,albeit young/evolving at this perusal at an early stage. Expansive, explosive, exotic... a Bin 389 triple-ex palate rating! A wave/ surge of fruits and spice unleashed – propelled by tomato and tahini paste flavors. Juicy, succulent tannins engulf, alongside oak –adding volume, density. Mouth-coating in every sense. Long and lingering.

Critical Acclaim

D 93
Decanter
A broodingly youthful "baby Grange" combining chocolate, cassis and blueberry Cabernet aromas with the sweeter, cinnamon, camphor and pepper notes of Shiraz but yet to fully integrate. Substantial and chewy with a firm spine of acidity.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Plump and generous, with opulent ripe plum, black cherry and fresh mint flavors that gain extra dimension from mocha, gingerbread and toasted cumin seed notes. Shows impressive torque on the long finish. Drink now through 2030.
WW 92
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
One of the most famous blends of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz in the world. Often referred as "Baby Grange" because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous Grange. The 2013 Penfolds Bin 389 shows fine synergy between the two grape varieties. Ripe, round and loaded in every which way, this wine's suppleness makes it a great match with a pulled pork sandwich. Drinking pretty nicely now. (Tasted: May 9, 2016, San Francisco, CA)
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Composed of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Shiraz, the Cabernet / Shiraz Bin 389 has a deep garnet-purple color and a nose of cherry and blackberry with a cassis undercurrent plus touches of pencil lead, cedar and Mediterranean herbs. The palate delivers a structured style with a firm, taut backbone, great freshness and a long, iron ore-laced finish.

Penfolds Wines, Australia
Penfolds Wines Winery Video

Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines since 1844 and indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine. Since then a series of stand-out wines both white and red have been released under the Penfolds masthead.

Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker and only the 4th custodian of Grange, relishes the opportunity to bring Penfolds to the world stage and is an enthusiastic ambassador and natural educator. Penfolds came to the attention of the US market when 1990 Grange was Wine Spectator’s ‘Wine of the Year’. Since then, Penfolds Grange has become one of the most collectable wines of the world and was honored to grace the front cover, once again, of Wine Spectator, with declarations of Grange as Australia’s Icon.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
