Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2018
This deep and bright coloured classic Australian blend has a rich, concentrated, meaty bouquet with nuances that remind me of wild brambles in the cow paddock on a hot summer’s day. Regan from Treasury said, ‘iodine’. A stellar, full-bodied, mouthfilling offering with a lovely amalgam of ripe cassis and pepper, a firm outer to the pillowy tannins, loads of chocolate, liquorice and vanilla and gobs of purple fruit that washes away the dryness of the tannins and leaves behind a sumptuous creamy aftertaste that lingers for ages. 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Shiraz with grapes sourced from Barossa Valley, Wrattonbully, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra.
