First produced in 1960 by Max Schubert, Bin 389 is often referred to as ‘Poor man’s Grange’ because components of the blend are matured in the same barrels as the previous vintage of Penfolds Grange. 2004 was an outstanding vintage in South Australia with above average winter rainfall followed by mild conditions up until February with hotter weather experienced throughout March and April. The 2004 Bin 389 was produced from a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Shiraz, and matured for 13 months in a combination of new, one year old and older American oak.

An outstanding example of Penfolds Bin 389 with Winemaker Peter Gago favourably comparing the quality of the 2004 Bin 389 to the great 1996 & 1998 vintages. Totally opaque black purple colour with black purple hue. Superb nose, with violet top note followed by spice, blackcurrant and liquorice allsorts. The palate is mouthfilling – full bodied, explosive flavours of black pepper with hints of earth, dark chocolate and mocha. Fine grained dry tannins, perfectly balanced to the finish. Very long aftertaste of mocha, old leather, dark chocolate and black pepper.
