Bin 60A Coonawarra Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz

1962 Penfolds Bin 60A Coonawarra Cabernet Kalimna Shiraz is a legendary Australian wine. In a world where egos readily clash, it unified wine critics and show judges. 1962 Bin 60A is Penfolds most successful show wine, winning nineteen trophies and thirty-three Gold medals in a relatively short timespan. It was a profound oenological, physical and philosophical achievement for its time. Still fresh and alive, it is a lasting model of Max Schubert’s ground-breaking winemaking practices and ideas of multi-regional and cross-varietal blending. The 1962-like vintage conditions in 2004 inspired the Penfolds winemakers to recreate Max Schubert’s great wine.
