    Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2008, SA Regional

    ,
    Created by the legendary Max Schubert - creator of Penfolds Grange - Bin 389 is often referred to as 'Poor Man's Grange' or 'Baby Grange', in part because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange.First made in 1960, this was the wine that helped to build Penfolds' solid reputation with red wine drinkers. Combining the structure of cabernet with the richness of shiraz, Bin 389 also exemplifies Penfolds' skill in balancing fruit and oak. A classic Australian style with a clear Penfolds identity.Penfolds Buyers Commission of 15% excl GST applies to this item.

    Yalumba Octavius Shiraz 2005 3Ltr, Barossa Valley

    , , ,
    Yalumba The Octavius has established a reputation as one of Australia's icon Shiraz wines, an amazing feat considering the first release was the 1990 vintage. In addition to being sourced from a number of very old vineyards in the Barossa, The Octavius is matured in American oak 'octaves' of 90 litres capacity. It is the only red wine in the world that is matured in such small barrels. The secret of the wine not becoming overpowered by the oak is that the wood is seasoned at Yalumba for eight years before the octaves are crafted. Yalumba is one of a select few wineries in the world who boast their own coopers practising the ancient craft of barrel making. A very limited release of 3ltr expressions from the Yalumba Octavius range were produced. This item is part of a vertical collection from the 2001 - 2006 vintages, and has been held in professional climate controlled storage since release. Buyers Commission of 15% excl GST applies to this item.
