Why We Love It

The 1988 vintage in South Australia excelled (somewhat in contrast to the rest of the country). One of the Barossa's most storied producers, Penfold's BIN 389 is more reasonable and approachable version of their storied Grange line. The 389 generally brings charred oak and ripe fruit notes, with a softening and smoothing accompanying tannis thanks to the significant bottle ageing of this 1988 gem.


Capsule Status: Intact
Label Quality: Great
Ullage: Into neck

Important Notes on Cabinet Wines

Many of the wines we sell in the Cabinet are from old vintages. Ageing can have truly wonderful effects on wine. Those effects are influenced by a range of factors, both within and outside the bottle, meaning two bottles from the same vintage may have different profiles. If you are new to older wines—and if so, welcome!—please keep in mind that you may encounter a range of flavours and aromas not found in younger wines.
