With thick skins, royal purple in colour, and elegant flavours derived from ideal grape-growing conditions, cabernet sauvignon provides the structure and palate length. Shiraz grapes, akin to small black pearls, provide the intensity, opulence and flesh. First made in 1960, Bin 389 has a reputation for consistency and longevity and has earned its well-deserved moniker, ‘baby Grange’, from time spent maturing in oak hogsheads used the previous vintage for Grange. This much-loved, beautifully consistent style shows all the hallmarks and benefits of cross-varietal blending and for many wine drinkers, it is their preferred Penfolds wine. Bin 389 is an Australian Grand Vin; a selection and interpretation of the best parcels from the best vineyard sites, by a winemaking team steeped in the ethos and tradition of a great Australian wine style.

Producer
We think of Pearson Vineyards as an undiscovered little jewel of a winery. It’s one of the smallest wineries we work with, and it’s one of the most interesting. Jim Pearson, the owner, manager, viticulturist and winemaker, is considered by many to be the 'Garagiste' of the Clare Valley. And when he’s not busy growing grapes and making wine, he runs the tasting room and sells wine at the cellar door. Jim makes the wine in a little shed next to his house. The facilities may not be impressive, but the wines certainly are. Pearson Vineyards currently offers two very special reds, a Cabernet Franc and a Cabernet Sauvignon. Both are full, rich flavorful wines that offer a great deal of complexity without a lot of oak.
