Bin 389 epitomizes the Penfolds winemaking philosophy, vis a vis the artisanal craft of multi vineyard assemblage. Whilst the individual regional characters are completely integrated, it is ultimately the personality and structure of the fruit that really matters.

Components are then matured in a high proportion of completely new American oak hogsheads for a year, many of the older seasoned barrels having conspicuously aged the previous vintage of Grange.
Dense deep red colour. Brimming with mochancoffee ground aromatics, heightened by black notes, appealing char and creamy, vanillin oak in the background. A flurry of fruits, spice and varietal markers abound. Voluminous and powerful, a sensory stratification of layers, unravelling flavours, festive pudding with roasted nuts, lamb and black olive, sarsaparilla spice.
