Penfolds Bin 600 California Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2019
In 1844 Penfolds has committed to producing wine with a quality upheld by their House Style. This allows the brand to venture outside of their borders to find the finest grapes from esteemed wine regions. Bin 600 is intrinsically linked to Penfolds beginning in California, a narrative that now spans three decades. 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 called 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.
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.
