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.

Expert Reviews

The new member of the Bin family, created to fill the gap as Bins 407 and 707 ascend into the price stratosphere. Blended from across South Australia, it's an elegant and bright style of lively poise, defined by varietal hallmarks of crunchy redcurrants, leaf and rose bud perfume. Tightly wound and ageworthy. Rating 92 - Drink by 2022, TS - Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2014)

Dark fruits including blackcurrant. Savoury green olive and roasted red peppers. Tomato leaf and oregano. Mixed spice, cedar and rosewood notes derived from oak.


Tightly structured and focused. Roasted meats, cured meats and spicy chorizo. Grainy and savoury tannin pro?le. Structured by classy French and American oak.

Decanting will bring out more expressive notes.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Australia's winemaking history of less than two hundred years is brief by European measures though, like Europe, punctuated by periods of extreme success and difficult times. From the earliest winemaking days Penfolds has figured prominently and few would argue the importance of Penfolds' influence on Australia's winemaking psyche.

Without the influence of Penfolds the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer.

Penfolds' reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend. But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times.

If there is anything traditional about Penfolds, it is the practice of constantly reviewing the wines it already does well, and continuously evolving and refining styles as vineyards mature and access to ever older and more varied vineyard sites improves.
