Penfolds `Bin 389` Cab Shirax 2008 (1x 1.5 L), Barossa Valley. Boxed

Lot No: 0018-2477313

A welcome wet winter and a moderate, dry spring encourage steady early season growth, setting up for a text- book harvest. Cool and dry conditions during the start of summer were describe as perfect, conducive to excellent flavour, colour and phenolic development. A record 15 day heatwave, starting on the 3rd March created a major interruption, inducing a vintage of two distinct halves - a statement pertaining to the profound differences in quality of fruit picked before and after the heat spell. Weighted- average vintage charts may not do justice to the South Australian harvest in 2008. Penfolds reds will. (265820-56)
