Created by the legendary Max Schubert – creator of Penfolds Grange – 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, this was the wine that helped to build Penfolds solid reputation with red wine drinkers. Combining the structure of Cabernet with the richness of Shiraz, Bin 389 also exemplifies Penfolds skill in balancing fruit and oak.
“Snugly nestled somewhere between the poise of ’96 and the power of ’98 Bin 389, when these Cabernet Shiraz blends were at this age in the last millennium!”
“As always, the star performer in the Penfolds Bin line-up, consistently hitting the value & quality sweet-spot of Penfolds reds. Worth queuing up for…”
-P. Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker
