2019 Penfolds Bin 389, 750ml
2019 Penfolds Bin 389 was often referred to as ‘Baby Grange’, in part because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange. Bin 389 highlights the generous mid-palate Penfolds is known for.
Nose: Lifted, fragrant. Immediately Penfolds. Aficionados may quickly identify and proclaim 389.
Palate: Flavours of roasted beetroot - a venison sauce beetroot reduction … similar texturally to a congealed sweet fat. Oak and tannins absorbed. Both are certainly present, yet not at all demanding their own space on this Bin 389 stage. Substantial, intense.
