PENFOLDS BIN 389 CABERNET SHIRAZ 2013
Warmer climate fruits have been sourced for the 54th consecutive release of this iconic wine. This 2013 vintage represents superb balance of old, new, French and American oak. A complex nose of chocolate, coffee, cinnamon and dark fruits round off the blend.
'A 51/49% blend from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Wrattonbully and Coonawarra that spent 12 months in American hogsheads (88% new and 1yo, 12% 2yo). The 'don't mess with me' message is immediate, the bouquet a shower of dark, savoury, earthy aromas, the palate trenchantly full-bodied - yet balanced and utterly persuasive. It needs 5 years to settle down and be friendly, but will handsomely repay patience'
