Penfolds Bin 169 Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

On paper, Bin 169 is to 707 what RWT is to Grange: single region in 100% new French oak rather than a multi-region blend in American oak. But the comparison strictly ends here because the style and aspiration of this wine hark to a more lofty place altogether. Bin 169 is baby Bin 620 – masterminded simultaneously, from the same region in the same vintage. Just two prized Penfolds blocks unite in a wine that enunciates the very definition of cabernet fruit purity of monumental proportions, while retaining the utter refinement of Coonawarra regional accuracy. At once bright and focused yet simultaneously powerful and intense; classic Penfolds tannins meet the genteel calm of French oak; ultra-fine yet devastatingly firm, with a finish of relentless endurance. Available exclusively direct from Penfolds.
