In 1966, Penfolds crafted the inaugural Bin 620 Coonawarra Cabernet Shiraz. After many years, in November 2011, Penfolds will pay an eagerly awaited homage to this celebrated Special Bin wine, releasing the 2008 Bin 620 Coonawarra Cabernet Shiraz from Shanghai, China on Wednesday 16 November.
Penfolds only release extremely limited bottlings of rare Special Bin wines from exceptional vintages, and only then when the quality of the flagship Grange and Bin 707 are not in any way compromised. In 2008, Coonawarra, one of Australia’s greatest wine regions, enjoyed a near perfect vintage affording the Penfolds winemaking team the opportunity to hand-select parcels of exquisite fruit for this Bin 620; thus continuing a grand tradition of making Special Bin wines for the enjoyment and interest of wine collectors and enthusiasts.
