The legendary Peter Gago has completed Max Schubert’s secret “Ultra-Cabernet” experiment. Over 30 years, these two carefully amassed a collection of the greatest vineyards in all of Australia. When it was ready for release, “Bin 389” absolutely devastated expectations by unleashing a strapping blackberry and camphor-laced Cabernet that ripples with muscular structure and the balance of a First Growth. Half the production of Screaming Eagle was made!
About the wine
With winemaker Peter Gago at the helm, Australian icon Penfolds has asserted itself as the country’s greatest producer, and has forced many reviewers to admit they are among the very best in the world. It’s stunning given the winery’s vast holdings – and yet each and every wine they make is so finely crafted - from the transcendent Grange (multiple 100pts) to the wallet-friendly Koonunga Hill. Few labels are as sure a bet as Penfolds - but to really get the good stuff, it’s worth stepping up to the Bin Series.

"Absolutely love this wine."
96 pts - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion
"A 51/49% blend from the Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Wrattonbully, matured for 12 months in American hogsheads (37% new). Good colour, although not as striking as some of the other wines in the range; Likewise retains some elegance despite the clarion call of the cascade of fruit flavours. The fruit, oak, tannin and acid balance is impeccable, as is the length and drive of the palate. The savoury subtext is equally good."
96 pts - James Suckling
"The personality of this warmer-vintage Bin 389 is big, bold and welcoming. Coal smoke and graphite intertwine with blackberry, cassis, woody and leafy notes. Some Chinese five spice, too. The palate is delivered with fine, sweeping and long, smooth tannins that carry a supple array of mainly blackberry and roasted-coffee flavors. Powerful yet silky, super long and smooth, building to an exceptionally tidy finish. This is an assembly of 51 per cent cabernet sauvignon and 49 per cent shiraz, sourced from Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Wrattonbully. Long aging potential. Drink now or hold."
