Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2015

Australia’s winemaking history of less than two hundred years is brief by European measures though, like Europe, punctuated by periods of extreme success and difficult times. From the earliest winemaking days Penfolds has figured prominently and few would argue the importance of Penfolds’ influence on Australia’s winemaking psyche. Without the influence of Penfolds the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer. Penfolds’ reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend.

But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times. If there is anything traditional about Penfolds, it is the practice of constantly reviewing the wines it already does well, and continuously evolving and refining styles as vineyards mature and access to ever older and more varied vineyard sites improves.

Wine Spectator 92 points – A lip-smacking mix of vibrant berry and cherry flavors that give way to green tea, toasted herb and cedar notes. Finds plenty of harmony on the finish, with the juicy acidity blending in with the dense, chewy tannins. Drink now through 2027. 6,180 cases imported. -MW.March/2018

Good with rare roasted rack of lamb with garlic, rosemary and sea salt Argentinean style beef Ideal with hearty meat dishes.
