2012 Tasting Notes

When Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold arrived from Britain in the young South Australian colony in 1844 with his wife Mary, he brought vine cuttings which he planted around his stone cottage, which they called 'The Grange'. This was situated in Magill, which is now part of suburban Adelaide.

A new Bin, a new Cabernet for Penfolds - Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker

The first Bin 9 vintage was made at the Penfolds Nuriootpa winery in 2012. Adherent to Penfolds multi-regional philosophy, Bin 9 is sourced from vineyards across South Australia with a significant portion sourced from the ancient soils of McLaren Vale. Grapes were carefully selected on merit to suit this contemporary expression of Cabernet Sauvignon. Bin 9 can be enjoyed in the full flush of youth or cellared for the medium-term.

A hallmark of the Bin wines is their ability to gain something extra with the passage of time. Further bottle maturation of this Bin 9 Cabernet Sauvignon will yield layers of complexity that are for now hiding behind brooding youthful fruit and subtle oak.
