Behind Bin 620 Coonawarra Cabernet Shiraz

Peter Gago
Penfolds Chief Winemaker

"A proud Australian blend, Cabernet and Shiraz, reunited across these three Penfolds Coonawarra vineyards for the first time in over four decades."

"Magill open fermenters, Nuriootpa static fermenters; basket and membrane presses; barrel fermentation; new French and American oak; Time proven."

"This is not a simple wine. Nor is it a blockbuster. Classic Penfolds Coonawarra."


Spring received above average rain which reduced frost pressure. The rest of the growing season from December - March was very dry, with only 25mm in late January to freshen the vines pre-veraison. High temperatures in short bursts in January necessitated careful water management to maintain canopy function and vine health, which excelled in the vineyards through to harvest. Between the short hot spells the temperatures were cool to mild which created appealing flavour development.
