Bin 600 is intrinsically linked to Penfolds beginning in California, a narrative that now spans three decades. In 1998, Penfolds imported a heritage selection of vine cuttings from South Australia’s esteemed Kalimna and Magill Estate vineyards and planted them in Californian soil. The original name of the Camatta Hills vineyard was called Creston “600” Ranch, a special place in the Penfolds California timeline for it serves as a reference point to the start of our American journey. Creston Ranch is now honoured in the wine’s name, Bin 600. In recognition of Penfolds history within our Californian wine story, grapes from the original 1998 vine cuttings feature in this cabernet shiraz blend. A blend that has been revered and championed by Penfolds in our modern winemaking era.

Red - big, bold, full-bodied

Palate

There is a beautiful core of generous red, blue and black fruits. At once concentrated, yet fresh. Summer berry pudding with anglaise. Rhubarb tart, apple and cinnamon strudel, Morello cherries. Shiraz plays a more important role here than on the aromatic profile by anchoring the mid-palate and providing plenty of generosity. Yin to the cabernet Yang. Fine talc-like tannins hold the expressive fruit in check, while soft acidity keeps everything in balance. Very approachable now, but with the promise of more to come.

”A blend of 68/32% cabernet sauvignon/shiraz from California's Napa Valley and Paso Robles; matured in American oak barriques (40% mew) for 16 months. Deep crimson in colour with cabernet making its presence felt on the nose through ripe blackberry and black cherry, some dark plum in the bass. Hints of baking spices, dried cranberry, pomegranate, berry flan, dark chocolate, cinnamon, vanillin oak and olive tapenade. There's an expressive flourish of ripe fruit in this wine showing pleasing depth and heft yet with a sense of freshness and clarity of line; fine graphitey-like tannins provide support, some morello cherry joining in on the extended finish.”
