Tasting Notes

The Wine Barossa Valley Marananga Shiraz 2016

Purple and crimson with a dense centre and a youthful edge. Blackberries, mulberries and cherries with hints of charred oak. There is plenty going on with black cherries, vanilla, and some saddle leather characters. The fruit is quite solid yet repressed by the oak and tannin. Will lay down well with some time in the cellar, fruit will prevail creating an elegant, savoury style of wine.


Gnadenfrei Estate St Michaels Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Dense deep purple-red in colour. Intense dark plum, blackberry, licorice, prune and oak. A big bold Barossa Shiraz in every aspect and unashamedly so. Black fruits dominate balanced out by savoury tannins and deep melted chocolate and oak.


Penfolds Bin 389 South Australia Cabernet Shiraz 2016

Deep dark magenta colour. A first impression of dark fruits and chocolate, splashed by spices – cinnamon, vanillin pod, cola. Then, a transient umami dabble – via cues of Worcestershire sauce/smoked Barossa bacon/beef cube. To follow, a bruléed lift mirrored by scents of toasted brioche, soaked oats. Intriguingly different, yet still Bin 389, albeit young/evolving at this perusal at an early stage. Expansive, explosive, exotic…a Bin 389 triple-ex palate rating! A wave/surge of fruits and spice unleashed – propelled by tomato and tahini paste flavours. Juicy, succulent tannins engulf, alongside oak – adding volume, density. Mouth-coating in every sense. Long and lingering.


Western Barossa Wines Barossa Valley GSM 2016

Deep crimson red with vibrant purple hues. Rich blackberry aromas supported integrated spicy vanillin oak. Impressively rich and opulent the palate delivers what the nose promises. Spicy dark berry fruit with cassis and cherry being dominant. Blackberry and some freshly cut plum provide a round fruit driven mid palate whilst the skillful use of second and third use oak ensure this is a full-flavoured and complex wine with stylish oak tannins.


Bleasdale Wellington Road Langhorne Creek GSM 2016

Crimson red wine with cherry and blackberry fruits supported by nutmeg, spice, white pepper and some  savoury, earthy characters.  A generous, opulent palate complemented by textured chalky tannins. 


Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay 2016

A lovely purity of expression with native fruits and hints of lemon zest, finger lime and crushed nasturtium leaf. Such fruits appear to get a ‘free ride’ – courteously propelled by fine, integrated French oak … a barrel fermentation dividend? Upon a swirl and a little air, subtle notes of crushed honeycomb and camomile arise. An initial detection of peach and nectarine from the white stone fruit spectrum but the real feature of the palate is its poise and perfectly pitched (grippy) acidity. The palate seems to just effortlessly glide linearly, retaining intent and purpose, yet structurally possessive of a velvet sheen that charms and disarms. Supported by ultra fine cedary French oak. All tasted is both succulent and lingering, from the first sip to long after the last! Not trying too hard; balanced, patient and relaxed. Rationalises the pursuit to source the ‘finest’ Chardonnay fruits accessible from anywhere in Australia.


Mary Davine Wines Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The vineyard is located on the South Eastern reaches of Eden Valley with an altitude of just over 500 metres – ensuring a long slow ripening season. As one of Australia’s premier viticulture regions we are consistently provided with exceptional fruit of great colour and depth of flavour.

"it offers a mouthful of blockbuster Australian Shiraz. This is classic Barossa Shiraz at its biggest and boldest."


Penfolds Bin 389 South Australia Cabernet Shiraz 2016

96 Points James Halliday Wine Companion 

A 51/49% blend from the Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Wrattonbully, matured for 12 months in American hogsheads (37% new). Good colour, although not as striking as some of the other wines in the range; Likewise retains some elegance despite the clarion call of the cascade of fruit flavours. The fruit, oak, tannin and acid balance is impeccable, as is the length and drive of the palate. The savoury subtext is equally good.

96 Points Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Deep, dense red/purple colour, with a bouquet of rich spice and chocolate and dark fruit aromas all well-balanced in the mix. The berries of cabernet and the earthy/spice of shiraz are both identifiable. It's a very full-bodied, rich, dense, concentrated wine, with lashings of tannins which are firm and gripping on the finish. A very long carry. A very big wine, massively structured and impressive, with great power and ageing potential. A wine that manages to tread the fine line between big structure and softness and accessibility. Still, I would cellar it a few years before broaching. (51% cabernet sauvignon, 49% shiraz) Drink 2021 to 2046

96 Points Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front 

Bin 389 cracks the ton, in asking price terms. The rich (wo)man’s, poor (wo)man’s drink. Grapes sourced from Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Wrattonbully. You don’t hear so much of Padthaway, that salty old dog, nowadays but it’s still important to the Penfolds red wine stable. 51% cabernet sauvignon, 49% shiraz. All American oak. Ah now you’ve done it. Stop it, just stop it. You look at the Bin 407 release from this vintage and think: that’s how it’s done. And then you add shiraz, and call it Bin 389, and the palate is boosted, the length is still there, the tobacco notes still light up, and with vanilla and cherry-plum notes tickling the cassis into a riot it suddenly feels irrepressible, like the premiership’s a cakewalk. It’s not a John Holmes wine; it’s not overdone. It’ a wine to slip through your defences, is what it is. It’s a cracker. This is why you blend cabernet with shiraz.

96 points James Suckling

The personality of this warmer-vintage Bin 389 is big, bold and welcoming. Coal smoke and graphite intertwine with blackberry, cassis, woody and leafy notes. Some Chinese five spice, too. The palate is delivered with fine, sweeping and long, smooth tannins that carry a supple array of mainly blackberry and roasted-coffee flavors. Powerful yet silky, super long and smooth, building to an exceptionally tidy finish. This is an assembly of 51 per cent cabernet sauvignon and 49 per cent shiraz, sourced from Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Wrattonbully. Long aging potential. Drink now or hold.

95 Points Andrew Caillard Master of Wine 

Medium deep colour. Classical Bin 389 with fresh blackcurrant, blackberry, dark chocolate aromas and roasted chestnut, mocha notes. Deep set dark chocolate, elderberry, blackcurrant fruits , plentiful fine chocolatey textures, lovely mid palate buoyancy and mocha, roasted coconut oak complexity. Finishes long and fruit sweet with a bitter firm chocolatey plume.

94 points Decanter

The so-called ‘Baby Grange’, Bin 389 is a Penfolds icon and a peerless example of the traditional Aussie blend. It's matured for 12 months in American oak, partly in previous-vintage Grange casks. Behind the youthful ruby hue lies a terrific red whose gently smoky, spicy cedar and liquorice aromas are highly perfumed and intense. On the palate it shows a promising youthful vigour in its richly concentrated, opulent cassis and blackberry fruit. It has a fine, smooth texture, with chocolatey depth, good complexity and spice aplenty, all supported by a fine spine of damson acidity and the sinewy tannin structure that awaits instructions to settle down. One for bollito misto and salsa verde.

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Cabernet / Shiraz Bin 389 is a blend of 51% Cabernet and 49% Shiraz, the least amount of Cabernet you'll ever see in this bottling. It's dark and stolid, with notes of cassis and blackberry along with touches of vanilla and cedar. Full-bodied and dense, it's firmly in the Penfolds style and the style of this particular bottling, which always ages well, even if it's not the flashiest or most flamboyant offering from Penfolds.

Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay 2016

97 Points Andrew Caillard Master of Wine 

Pale colour. Fragrant grapefruit, nectarine, white peach grilled nut aromas and superb flinty, mineral complexity. Wonderful palate with lovely grapefruit, nectarine, stone fruits, fine looseknit chalky/ al-dente textures, underlying savoury oak nuances and long fresh pure quartz-like acidity. Electrically-charged, powerfully expressive and sophisticated wine with a superb balance of fruit, oak and freshness. Demands a few years of cellaring to build further complexity.

96 Points Tyson Stelzer 

This is a beautifully distinguished Yattarna that seamlessly marries its three regions to harmonious effect. It leads out with understated grace, effortlessly rising with exacting line and outstanding persistence. Lemon, white peach and fig are masterfully united with understated French oak, with exacting fruit and acid marriage, ever confident yet never dominating. This is no blockbuster Yattarna, rather an eloquent and refined blend, and it’s all the finer for it

96 Points Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front 

Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay. Bin 144. The Tasmania, Henty, Adelaide Hills and Tumbarumba regions all contributed grapes. 35% new French oak for eight months. The first vintage was from the 1995 vintage; we’ve come a long way with Yattarna. It now stands pre-eminent. The grandest wines are often the most surly, and this release is. It will come around in its own good time. It’s a tight, powerful, brooding wine; gravity is its middle name. All the screws have been tightened and re-tightened; you get the feeling the winemaking team kept torque wrenches handy. The days will come and go; this wine will stride on. Grapefruit and toast, flint and fig. A show of spice. Majestic.

96 Points Huon Hooke 

Light to medium straw-yellow colour, with a pronounced nutty, slightly toasted nut bouquet, showing more oak than the Reserve Bin 17. The palate is rich and concentrated, velvet-smooth and fleshy with great depth and extract. Tremendously long carry. A brilliantly balanced, powerful wine, which is just starting out on its career and will undoubtedly reward cellaring and show much more character and complexity in a few years. Great potential.

The Wine Barossa Valley Marananga Shiraz 2016

Hand selected and hand picked fruit was used for this wine and it underwent fermentation in stainless steel open top fermenters, and was pumped over twice a day, the wine was pressed then transferred to new hogshead barrels where it completed its malolactic fermentation. The wine was topped regularly and racked once whilst maturing in barrel.


Gnadenfrei Estate St Michaels Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Despite well below average rainfall and warm conditions during the growing season, our vines produced another outstanding vintage. Heavy rainfall in late January followed by ongoing mild days and cool nights allowed ideal ripening conditions. The fruit then matured with an early harvest. The resultant 2016 wines are outstanding and feature lifted pure red fruit characteristics, savoury tannins, great depth of flavour and sheer colour intensity. Select Old Vine Barossa Shiraz sourced from vines aged 50-80 years were used in this wine. Traditional winemaking techniques were employed and the fruit was handled in a gentle hands off approach to ensure the vineyard remained the hero. This Shiraz was matured for 16 months in 1 and 2 year old oak hogshead barrels (75% French 15% American). 

Upon release allow the wine to breathe for at least a couple of hours, this wine is built to last and should drink well for the next 10-15 years.


Western Barossa Wines Barossa Valley GSM 2016

We hand picked a small section of Grenache from Block 4 rows 7-23, Shiraz from block 5 rows 1-12 and block 8 rows 3-9 to created a style of wine guided by the fruit initially. We wanted a wine driven by fruit yet surrounded in a bed of spicy flavours and tannin therefore selected these small sections as the fruit produced dark berry flavours with wonderful spice characters which would infiltrate not be overwhelmed by second and third use oak. The fruit was transferred to the winery and the fruit was combined together to ensure it worked harmoniously through the entire winemaking process; macerated for an extended period with seeds and stems to allow us to give a vision of the vineyard in the final wine. The wine was left in this state for 30 days and hand plunged which ensured we extracted all the colour, aromas and tannin we could. Basket pressed into barrel again allowed us to continue the hands off method and ensure fruit purity was key again this ensures longevity. The wine was not topped during its 256 days it spent in barrel then finally it received minimal filtration and fining. This wine illustrates just how beautiful a wine from the warm Wild West can be, in a word moreish.

A wine, which will appear beautifully, round and lavish if drunk upon release whilst the oak tannins provide a backbone, which will ensure drinking over the next decade will not be a problem.


Bleasdale Wellington Road Langhorne Creek GSM 2016

Bleasdale continues to showcase the ability of Langhorne Creek to produce quality individualistic wines.  Grenache and Shiraz were originally grown in Langhorne Creek for fortified winemaking but are proving to be excellent for table wine.  Nurtured from small parcels into a vibrant, plush and rewarding wine.

Grenache and Shiraz de-stemmed together to open fermenters for pre-ferment maceration. Pump overs up to 4 times daily.  Drained & pressed after 12 days on skins, settled for 24 hours before racking to tank and oak for maturation.


Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay 2016

Launched in 1998 with the 1995 vintage, Yattarna is the result of one of the most comprehensive, focused and highly publicised wine development projects ever conducted in Australia. The aspiration and independence of mind across generations of Penfolds winemakers inspired the winery to embark on a program to create a white wine that stands alongside Grange. Selectively sourcing only the very best Chardonnay fruit from cool-climate regions, coupled with sensitive winemaking, the style continues to evolve.

Yattarna reflects Penfolds patience and continued commitment to its original goal, its very name being drawn from the Aboriginal language, meaning ‘little by little, gradually.’ Each vintage provides the opportunity to further raise the quality bar.


Mary Davine Wines Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Planted in 1970 (48 years ago) Only local knowledge, a firm hand-shake deal and an outrageous cash exchange allowed us to secure a small parcel this sumptuous fruit. And even then I have to keep it secret. If the other producers find out the vineyard owner will be in trouble and that the end of the fruit.

The unique micro-climate ensures long slow flavour development. Delivering an intensity of concentration and length rarely found anywhere else in the Barossa.

The fruit is harvested in the cool of the night to retain flavour and freshness before destemming and inoculation with specific rare yeast – a Italian strain that specifically ferments at cool temperatures.

It only serves to enhance the natural fruit flavours.

The ferments are undertaken in traditional 1 ton open fermenters for 8 days, each day the fruit is hand plunged pushing the skins under the fermenting juice to assist in great colour and flavour development of the wine. Once a day the juice is drained from the fermenter and then returned over the skins. With approximately 2 Baume the fermenting wine is drained from the fermenter and the skins basket pressed by hand. Total extraction is limited to a maximum of 500 litres per ton – extremely lower compared to an industry average of 750 litres per ton.

The fermenting wine is gravity transferred into a mixture of new and 3 year old French and American hogsheads to complete primary fermentation and malolactic fermentation. Upon completion the wine is racked and returned to mature for a minimum period of 21 months.
