Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2009 750 ml
"An instant allure, an inviting and tempting aromatic advance. Firstly, scents of freshly baked bread and dressed Black Forest Cake, replete with dark chocolate and assorted berries, cherries. Then aromas of bread and butter pudding/nut loaf, adorned with dates, sultanas and walnuts." Balanced and lingering on the palate with masses of blackcurrant, mocha, and liquorice. Lush, expansive and succulent.
Bin 389 is an Australian Grand Vin; a selection and interpretation of the best parcels from the best vineyard sites, by a winemaking team steeped in the ethos and tradition of a great Australian wine style.
Food Pairing Notes
Ideal with hearty meat dishes like Agrentinean style beef or a rare roasted rack of lamb with garlic, rosemary and sea salt.
"Bin 389 is often referred to as 'Poor Man's Grange' or 'Baby Grange', in part becasue components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange."
