2019 Bin 600 Cabernet Shiraz

Bin 600 is intrinsically linked to Penfolds beginnings in California, a narrative that now spans more than twenty years. In 1998, Penfolds imported a heritage selection of vine cuttings from South Australia’s esteemed Kalimna and Magill Estate vineyards, and planted them in Californian soil. The original name of the Camatta Hills vineyard was Creston “600” Ranch, a special place in the Penfolds California timeline for it serves as a reference point to the start of our American journey. Creston Ranch is now honored in the wine’s name, Bin 600. In recognition of Penfolds history within our Californian wine story, grapes from the original 1998 vine cuttings feature in this cabernet shiraz blend. A blend that has been revered and championed by Penfolds in our modern winemaking era.

“Two puzzle pieces that know their place. Shiraz respecting the line of cabernet and cabernet respecting the form and fruit of shiraz.”

Taste Description

Taste Description

2019 Bin 600 Cabernet Shiraz

Colour

Garnet core with a cherry-red rim.

Nose

Ample, indulgent. A “European” savoury aroma profile, refined, inviting. Spicy marinated olives, fetta, semi-dried tomatoes. Coppa cured pork, saucisson sec. An exotic deviation towards Thai red curry paste, freshly ground by mortar and pestle. Thyme flowers, lavender, violets. Slow cooked comfort food, braised lamb with winter root vegetables. Barley and mushroom risotto. Concentrated bone broth, beef consommé.

Palate

A glossy and resolved palate, malt and toast. Generous, sweet fruits. The sweet American oak wraps around the core of dark fruits encapsulating everything the wine holds within. When the oak bubble is pierced, a burst of custard, goji berries, medjool dates and choc-malt creaminess is released. Oregano, hazelnut and cinnamon season the palate. Structurally, the wine flares rather than focusses to a finish. A clarity to the tannins, a resolved palate.

Our California Collection

Our California journey started decades ago in the Camatta Hills vineyard, Paso Robles. In the 1980’s, we initiated an ambitious viticultural program in Australia called ‘Heritage Selections’. From our most prized vineyards, winemakers sought to identify single vineyards, blocks and vines that produced the best quality fruit. Cuttings from these exceptional Heritage Selections were then propagated and eventually sent across the world to California.
