Wine Summary Image

Vintage Conditions

Most areas of South Australia, including Wrattonbully and the Barossa Valley, were impacted by lower than

average rainfall across the winter period. This resulted in ideal stress through spring flowering. Variable

conditions across all regions through October to December, merged to a mild summer with a few short

periods of heat. The mild daytime temperatures and cool evenings across most of the ripening period

allowed impressive flavour development without inflated baumés. Balanced canopies and fruit load provided

even ripening throughout veraison. Warm dry conditions continued throughout harvest allowing fruit to be

picked in optimal condition. Smaller berry and bunch sizes were noticeable in most regions. This, coupled

with favourable weather conditions, induced great results for traditional quality markers – colour, tannin

profile, fruit concentration and flavour depth.

Expert Reviews

Deep, dense crimson-purple; the profound bouquet offers every kind of black fruits imaginable, large and small, yet somehow leaves a space and air in the mix for more complex secondary characters to emerge given time - lots of it. The palate takes all this, and adds to it with barrel ferment characters introducing licorice and touches of wild herb. This wine fully lives up to the great expectations held of it (and the vintage). Arguably the bargain of the release. - James Halliday

A blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Shiraz made with fruit from Wrattonbully, Barossa, McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek and Robe that was aged 12 months in American oak hogsheads, 40% of which were new, the deep garnet-purple colored 2012 Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz is slightly closed with the Cabernet / cassis leading the nose marked by warm red and black plums, Mediterranean herbs, pepper and cedar. In the mouth notes of vanilla and cedar wrap around the warm black fruit core that is framed by firm, chewy tannins and just enough acid. It finishes long. - 91 Points, The Wine Advocate

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

Deep and dense earthy red

Nose

An exotic and unctuous mix of dates, prunes, and other Middle-Eastern dried fruits. Spices abound – musk, mustard powder, curry vanillin, Moroccan spices; dried herb. Cabernet and Shiraz varietal fruits tussle for attention … as they should. But which are which?!

Palate

Focussed/tight/fresh…perhaps most impacted by the blend’s Cabernet fruits and vibrant acidity? Confiture, marzipan, liquorice and aniseed flavours couple with those of roasted white meats - enhanced by barrel fermentation, sensitive oak accompaniment. Slatey tannins (not blocky) are splashed unobtrusively, yet propel length and character. Complete.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Australia's winemaking history of less than two hundred years is brief by European measures though, like Europe, punctuated by periods of extreme success and difficult times. From the earliest winemaking days Penfolds has figured prominently and few would argue the importance of Penfolds' influence on Australia's winemaking psyche.

Without the influence of Penfolds the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer.

Penfolds' reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend. But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times.

If there is anything traditional about Penfolds, it is the practice of constantly reviewing the wines it already does well, and continuously evolving and refining styles as vineyards mature and access to ever older and more varied vineyard sites improves.
