The 2011 Cab Shiraz offers complexity, depth and a wonderful palate. This voluminous and powerful wine is true to the ‘house style’ of the 53 year old stylistic template of Bin 389.
A fruit driven, dense, deep red, this wine is big, elegant and well structured. Oak absorbed, the tannins give a dry finish to the flavours of black fruits and pepper.
Brimming with coffee ground aromatics, subtle notes of vanilla oak and a flurry of fruits, spice and varietal markers, this wine is ready to drink or cellar until 2030.

“Texture and extract defies vintage… A wine from the 2011 vintage that overtly benefits from Bin 707 relegation… sssh – don’t tell anyone!”
“If only we could make more…”
