Almost Grange-like in stature. A very strong Bin 389 with all the hallmarks of a great Penfolds vintage - Andrew Caillard MW

Penfolds Rewards of Patience tasting panel 2021 - 5/5 rating 

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. 

"In sheer persistence alone, this goes down among the great vintages of Bin 389. It''s one for the cellar, a season of concentration, deep structure and vibrant colour that upholds brightness and promises decades of longevity. Blackcurrant and blackberry fruits meet black plums and liquorice, set against a backdrop of dark chocolate oak. A wall of tannins, fine and firm, securely structured yet polished, coax out a finish of outstanding persistence and impeccable line. Wow."  Tyson Stelzer

The 2013 Bin 389 is a blend of 51% cabernet sauvignon and 49% shiraz from premium vineyards in Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Wrattonbully and Coonawarra. The wine was matured for 12 months in American oak hogsheads (28% new, 60% 1-y.o.and 12% 2-y.o).

"Deep crimson. Intense dark chocolate, ferric, black cherry and roasted coffee aromas with leafy notes. Saturated dark cherry, praline and panforte flavours, fine plentiful leafy tannins, attractive mid-palate richness and underlying espresso notes. Finishes chocolaty firm. Surprising density and power. Peak drinking now to 2042+.

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.
