Description

Other vintages available - email us to learn about our full Penfolds collection: support@vendimia.com.au

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.
Wooden case excluded.

Eyes

A dense, dark, dark purple core

Nose

An instant allure, an inviting & tempting aromatic advance. A veritable baker's / winemaker's kitchen: Firstly, scents of freshly baked & dressed Black Forest Cake, replete with dark chocolate and assorted berries, cherries. Then, aromas of Bread & Butter Pudding / Nut Loaf, adorned with dates, sultanas and walnuts.
Brazenly hovering above - wafts of fresh pipe tobacco coupled with higher notes of beeswax polished leather.

Mouth

Lush, expansive & succulent.
Balanced, lingering - colluded via conspiring tannins lurking behind masses of blackcurrant & mulberry fruits and a mix of licorice and mocha. Oak is completely absorbed, yet barrel-ferment complexities still stake their claim.
