Bin 8 is baby Bin 389, with a drinking window that tactically ends right about when its big brother kicks in, guaranteeing continual cabernet shiraz joy in your drinking calendar! The 2014 rendition is spicy, tangy, fragrant and fine, with the bright, fragrant personality of cabernet (52%) well backed by finely structured tannins. A core of tangy red berry fruits carries long and even, making for a nicely assembled lunchtime claret style and a downright lovely drink. It was sourced from the Barossa Valley, Wrattonbully, Padthaway and Coonawarra and matured for 12 months in French (5% new) and American (6% new) oak barrels. Drink 2016 - 2022.
