Penfolds `Bin 9` Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 (3 x750mL), SA.

A new Bin, a new Cabernet for Penfolds

Decades of investment in new vineyards across the best wine regions of South Australia afforded the Penfolds winemaking team the opportunity to craft a new wine, designated Bin 9. The first vintage was made at the Penfolds Nuriootpa winery in 2012. Adherent to Penfolds multi-regional philosophy, Bin 9 is sourced from vineyards across South Australia with a significant portion sourced from the ancient soils of McLaren Vale. Grapes were carefully selected on merit to suit this contemporary expression of Cabernet Sauvignon. Bin 9 can be enjoyed in the full flush of youth or cellared for the medium-term.

A hallmark of the Bin wines is their ability to gain something extra with the passage of time. Further bottle maturation of this Bin 9 Cabernet Sauvignon will yield layers of complexity that are for now hiding behind brooding youthful fruit and subtle oak.
