Wine Summary Image

Vintage Conditions

A welcome wet winter and a moderate, dry spring encouraged steady early season growth, setting up for a text-book harvest. Cool and dry conditions during the start of summer were described as perfect, conducive to excellent flavour, colour and phenolic development. A record 15 day heatwave, starting on the 3rd March created a major interruption, inducing a vintage of two distinct halves - a statement pertaining to the

profound differences in quality of fruit picked before and after the heat spell. Weighted-average vintage charts may not do justice to the South Australian harvest in 2008. Penfolds reds will.

Expert Reviews

Strong purple-crimson; there is a cohesive element to the Bin releases of ’08, all showing very good fruit concentration and balance, as with the blackberry and blackcurrant flavours and tannins of this wine. Excellent cellaring potential. - James Halliday

Deep garnet-purple colored the 2008 Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz is a little restrained on the nose, giving appealing notes of mocha, cloves and chocolate box over a core of blueberries and kirsch. Medium to full bodied, it’s dense and taut in the mouth with a firm structure of chewy tannins and lively acidity, finishing long and purely fruited. Approachable now, it should give pleasure to 2018+. - 91 Points, The Wine Advocate

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

A dense, dark, dark purple core.

Nose

An instant allure, an inviting & tempting aromatic advance. A veritable baker's / winemaker's kitchen: Firstly, scents of freshly baked & dressed Black Forest Cake, replete with dark chocolate and assorted berries, cherries. Then, aromas of Bread & Butter Pudding / Nut Loaf, adorned with dates, sultanas and walnuts.

Brazenly hovering above - wafts of fresh pipe tobacco coupled with higher notes of beeswaxpolished leather.

Palate

Lush, expansive & succulent. Balanced, lingering - colluded via conspiring tannins lurking behind masses of blackcurrant & mulberry fruits and a mix of liquorice and mocha. Oak is completely absorbed, yet barrel-ferment

complexities still stake their claim. Firm, Formidable, Feisty. ... a bottled & binned Bin 389 impatiently awaiting its release.

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.
