Penfolds Bin 600 Cabernet/Shiraz
Medium-bodied: as intended. Sweet liquorice, brimming with potent aniseed forms the flavour backbone and contributes to the glycerous texture. Radiating from this backbone is pepper-rubbed pastrami, rare roast beef, cocoa dusting, semi-dried dates and freshly harvested persimmons.

ABOUT THE WINERY
fter the success of early sherries and fortified wines, founders Dr Christopher and Mary Penfold planted their vine cuttings they had carried on their voyage over to Australia. In 1844 the fledging vineyard was officially established as the Penfolds wine company at Magill Estate. By 1907, Penfolds had become South Australia’s largest winery. Another century goes by with many more successes to it’s name.
Their 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.
