Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz

Penfolds Bin 389 is the classic South Australian red! Often referred to as 'Baby Grange' or 'Poor Man's Grange', Bin 389 was the wine that helped to build Penfolds' solid reputation with wine drinkers around the world. A magnificent blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz from the very best regions and vineyards available to Peter Gago and his team, the robust nature of the Cabernet grape give structure and body to the wine while the opulent Shiraz fruit provides suppleness and intensity. A true icon of Australian wine first created by the legend himself, Max Schubert, Peter Gago is quoted as saying 'Through thick and thin, across all vintages, Bin 389 always delivers - benefitting from over half a century of practice!

Kaesler Wines W O M S Shiraz Cabernet

Kaesler Wines W.O.M.S. Shiraz Cabernet, Barossa Valley W.O.M.S. stands for Weapon of Mass Seduction. When it comes to the name of this wine, there are two camps those who like it and those who very much dont. Conduct this survey before and after tasting and the results will be quite different. Many in the no camp, will switch sides after tasting this classic Australian blend of Shiraz (planted 1961) and Cabernet Sauvignon (planted 1985). Expect black cherry, vanilla and swatch of savoury notes. The WONS is made only in years where the fruit reaches dizzying heights in terms of quality. After pressing, the free-run juice is collected over a day and a half before making its way into mature Nevers oak. There it will remain in that state for more than two years prior to the final blending. Bottled without fining or filtering, the result is a wine that Kaesler advise will age for 30 years. But why so conservative? It could go on and on but it does need a bit of time in the cellar.
