PENFOLDS BIN 389 CABERNET SHIRAZ 2019

$110.00

This age worthy red is deep and dense with a glass staining purple hue.

Subtle scents of oak, cedar and graphite wait for further bottle maturation. Separated Cabernet and Shiraz fruits would also benefit from cellaring, giving them time to unite.

The savoury bouquet mixes earthy, spicy and and bitey scents. Flavours of liquorice, stewed plum and toasty barrel nuances make for a drying palate. The acidity interplays with integrated, evolved tannins – coating the mouth and adding length. This wine is less typical of the Bin 389 style, less fruity but as Huon Hooke describes it, “Great intensity, concentration and focus, elegant, taut and long-lingering.”

This is one to cellar with peak drinking between now and 2049.

Although there were lower than average yields, the quality of the 2019 vintage was outstanding with both Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon displaying excellent colours, firm tannin profiles and intense flavours.

Andrew Caillard

“A dark horse vintage with the shape of Bin 389 and the torque of Bin 707. A fascinating but quite different Bin 389 revealing the light and shade of multi-regional sourcing and the hallmarks of the Penfolds House Style. Should last the distance.”
