Penfolds Bin 389 is often referred to as '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 forge Penfolds reputation with red wine drinkers by combining the structure of cabernet sauvignon with the richness of shiraz. It is named after its original binning compartment at Magill cellars. 

To honour 60 years since its inception, Penfolds winemakers selected exemplar Bin 389 parcels to create this Limited Release. This wine offers an alternative expression of a 2018 cabernet shiraz.  The wine was matured in twice the amount of new oak as the 'regular' Bin 389; the oak easily handled thanks to the quality of the fruit and the oak used for this very special homage blend. This Limited Release is destined to age long and gracefully, as would be expected of a Bin 389 derivative.  

The 2018 60th Anniversary Limited Release Cabernet Shiraz is a blend of 54% cabernet sauvignon and 46% shiraz from premium vineyards in McLaren Vale, Coonawarra, Padthaway, Barossa Valley and Wrattonbully. The wine was matured for 18 months in oak hogsheads (67% new).

"Nose: Immediately fresh and lively. Very South Australian – brazen formic plumes strut above, whilst polished boot leather aromatics lurk below. Scents of dehydrated strawberry & raspberry coulis propelled ahead of more familial cherry pip & sarsaparilla. Overt & extrovert (sandalwood) oak, coupled with a mix of roasted nuts (pecan/pistachio/hazelnut/walnut), conspire to monopolise attention.

Wine region map of South Australia

South Australia

South Australian is responsible for more than half the production of all Australian wine. It is home to more than 900 wineries across 18 wine regions. The regions are Adelaide Hills, Adelaide Plains, Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Coonawarra, Currency Creek, Eden Valley, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale, Mount Benson, Mount Gambier, Padthaway, Riverland, Robe, Southern Fleurieu, Southern Flinders Ranges and Wrattonbully.

Many of the well-known names in the South Australian wine industry established their first vineyards in the late 1830s and early 1840s. The first vines in McLaren Vale were planted at Reynella in 1839 and Penfold's established Magill Estate on the outskirts of Adelaide in 1844.

South Australia has a vast diversity in geography and climate which allows the State to be able to produce a range of grape varieties - from cool climate Riesling in the Clare and Eden Vallies to the big, full bodied Shiraz wines of the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. Two of Australia's best-known wines, Penfolds Grange and Henschke Hill of Grace, are produced here. There is much to discover in South Australia for the wine lover.
