Wow, you can stand back and admire. Or dive in. Exceptional, modern 389 - Mike Bennie

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. 

"There is true depth of aroma and flavour in this wine, ranging from fragrant florals to menacing black fruits, all offset by sweet spices and well-handled oak; full-bodied, with full-throttle tannins, bright acid and an exceedingly long finish. This will cellar brilliantly, but is not likely to get the chance."  Ben Edwards

The 2009 Bin 389 is a blend of 51% cabernet sauvignon and 49% shiraz from premium vineyards in Padthaway, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra, Wrattonbully and Robe. The wine was matured for 12 months in American oak hogsheads (21% new).

"Medium-deep crimson. Cranberry, raspberry and graphite aromas with camomile and leafy notes. Medium bodied with cranberry, raspberry and redcurrant fruits, fine loose-knit chalky tannins, assertive mineral acidity and underlying new oak notes. Finishes muscular firm. Drinking well, but will improve with time. Peak drinking to 2040. 

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.
