Penfolds, Grange 2018 750ML

905 SGD / bottle
The most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy, Grange is arguably Australia’s most celebrated wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. Crafted utilising fully ripe, intensely flavoured and structured shiraz grapes, the result is a unique Australian style that is now recognised as one of the most consistent of the world’s great wines. With an unbroken line of vintages from the experimental 1951, Grange clearly demonstrates the synergy between shiraz and the soils and climates of South Australia.
On the nose, this wine delivers a bold burst of vibrant V.A. and pulsating formics, balanced by subtle barrel-ferment notes. Aromatics reveal ripe blackberries, fennel, anise, dark chocolate, and cola, complemented by authentic scents of charcoaled lamb fat and raw wagyu carpaccio. A veil of hydrocarbon and earthy elements conceals a nuanced touch of mahogany and lacquer. The interplay between youthful fruitiness and a dense powerhouse creates a captivating tension.

Its palate seamlessly blends balance and sophistication, embodying Grange's essence with familial flavours of a deconstructed Black Forest Cake. Tactile and mouthcoating, it features velvety tannins and a dynamic interplay of acidity, oak, and fruit. The wine's convex mid-palate supports upfront grip, leading to a lengthy, evolving finish. A promise of transformative nuances unfolds with time, destined for enjoyment over the next half-century.

Penfolds, Bin 600 Cabernet Shiraz 2019 750ML

100 SGD / bottle
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.
Abundant and refined, this wine offers a European-inspired savory aroma profile with spicy olives, cured pork, and exotic hints of Thai curry paste. It evokes comfort with slow-cooked lamb, barley-mushroom risotto, and concentrated bone broth.

The palate is glossy and resolved, showcasing malt and toast. Sweet fruits abound, enveloped by the embrace of sweet American oak, which reveals custard, goji berries, medjool dates, and choc-malt creaminess when pierced. Oregano, hazelnut, and cinnamon season the palate, and the structural flare leads to a clear and resolved finish with distinct tannins.

Penfolds, Bin 704 Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 750ML

109 SGD / bottle
Steeped in Penfolds winemaking tradition yet still embracing modernity, Bin 704 seeks to redefine Napa Valley cabernet through a Penfolds lens. Being mindful of varietal nuances, regional essence and silk-like textural definition, the wine is nurtured in French barriques for maturation. Impressive is the cyclical nature of viticulture and winemaking, and Penfolds recognises that different hemispheres often end up being the mirror image of the other. The name Bin 704 draws inspiration from the “mirror” or “reverse” image of its Australian Bin 407 stablemate, a wine which also respects varietal expression.
Rich in red and sweet spices, this wine features notes of red currants, Iranian barberries, and pomegranate. A steely-cool minerality complements pâtisserie elements like dark cherry pie and milk chocolate mousse. French oak provides a cedary structure, supporting a vibrant mulberry and summer berry core.

Defined yet approachable, this wine boasts a silky texture, succulent acidity, and a fine graphite core. With unexpected power in its dense black fruit drive, it's a confident choice for immediate enjoyment or extended cellaring.

SGD / bottle
Bin 707 is a perfect cabernet sauvignon representation of Penfolds 'House Style': intensely-flavoured fruit; completion of fermentation and maturation in new oak; expressing a Penfolds understanding of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing. Bin 707 was first vintaged in 1964. The wine was not made from 1970 to 1975 (when fruit was directed to other wines) nor in 1981, 1995, 2000, 2003, 2011 or 2017 (when fruit of the required style and quality was not available). Full-bodied and with proven cellaring potential, Bin 707 retains a secure place among the ranks of Australia's finest cabernets.
The unfolding experience reveals cabernet notes of black olive and rolled cigar, accompanied by soaring florals like violet and lavender. Bursting sea spray and iodine add complexity, while roasted meats, cinnamon, and Dijon mustard seed provide depth.

The Bin 707 reflects a harmonious blend of regional characteristics. McLaren Vale contributes a plush front palate with hints of sea spray, Coonawarra adds red-dustiness, and the Barossa Valley provides a solid core with chocolate/cigar nuances. The berried/plum compôte flavors, enriched with nutmeg and custard, defy easy regional categorization, much like the undeniable influence of 100% new oak. The mid-palate richness embraces graphite and discreet cabernet tannins, promising further transformation over time.

The aromatic promise is fulfilled in a tightly structured palate that is round and full. It features sage fried in butter over pan-fried sweetbreads.

Polished mahogany oak adds creaminess and spice. Complex and multi-faceted, prompting the desire for another glass.

Penfolds, RWT Bin 798 Shiraz 2019 750ML

199 SGD / bottle
The initials RWT stand for 'Red Winemaking Trial', the name given to the project internally when developmental work began in 1995. Naturally, now no longer a 'trial', RWT Shiraz was launched in May 2000 with the 1997 vintage. The alphanumeric Bin designation 798 was bestowed upon the wine from the 2016 vintage. Its style is opulent and fleshy, contrasting with Grange, which is more muscular and assertive. RWT is made from fruit primarily selected for its aromatic qualities and plush texture. The result is a wine that helps to redefine Barossa shiraz at the highest quality level. RWT wines are built for the long haul, with the precision, concentration and balance to age for many years.
The sensory experience unfolds with a floral fragrance and fresh berried fruits on Danish pastry. French oak emerges with citrus and cedar notes, while cured meats and aromatic thyme add complexity.

Viscous and concentrated with dark cherry and blackcurrant notes, complemented by quince and hints of fig, cheese, and balsamic. Vietnamese mint and anise provide a refreshing lift. Dusty tannins carry a cocoa chocolate impression, showcasing a confident structure with Barossa weight and restrained oak.

Penfolds, Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2020 750ML

109 SGD / bottle
Bin 389 was often referred to as ‘Baby Grange’, in part because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange. First made in 1960 by the legendary Max Schubert, this was the wine that helped forge Penfolds reputation with red wine drinkers by combining the structure of cabernet sauvignon with the richness of shiraz.
Exemplifying the judicious balance of fruit and oak, Bin 389 highlights the generous mid-palate Penfolds in known for.
Tightly coiled with sweet American oak, this wine harmoniously blends cabernet and shiraz, offering dense fruit notes of black cherries and plums. Traditional German Kuchen-inspired sweetness and savoury hints of seared wagyu and sundried tomatoes complete the experience.

Focused and well-defined, this wine combines cabernet sauvignon and shiraz for considerable structure and density, filling the palate. The trademark creamy mid-palate of Bin 389 adds complexity even in youth. Savoury notes of fennel, radicchio, and pickled turnips complement Moroccan lamb, while red liquorice and cherry provide a sweet touch. Evolved tannins ensure long-term aging potential.

Penfolds, Reserve Bin 21A Chardonnay 2021 750ML

118 SGD / bottle
Reserve Bin A Chardonnay has evolved into a wine that is now a distinctive, single-region style in its own right, with a contemporary and expressive Adelaide Hills chardonnay persona. Fruit is hand-picked into small bins and then whole bunch pressed. A portion of the juice is incrementally filled to barrel directly from the press and allowed to undergo a natural fermentation, sans inoculation. Every new and seasoned French oak barrique is its own unique 225-litre ferment. Enhanced mouthfeel and complexity is achieved by fermenting and maturing on solids with regular yeast lees stirring. 100% malolactic fermentation (all natural).
On the nose, minerality shines with crushed flint, wet stone, and river pebble. Fruits of white stone fruits, custard apple, and citrus, along with pâtisserie notes of crème brûlée and almond brittle. Subtle hints of cassia and smokey cedar add spice to this tightly wound wine, unfolding with time in the glass.

Fresh white stone fruits dominate the palate, offering layers and texture. Wet stone minerality balances sweet nougat and cashew notes. Soft, pillowy acidity supports very fine-grained phenolics. The finish is remarkably lengthy, with competing layers of complexity.

Penfolds, St Henri Shiraz 2017 750ML

120 SGD / bottle
St Henri is a time-honoured and alternative expression of shiraz, and an intriguing counterpoint to Grange. It is unusual amongst high quality Australian red wines as it does not rely on any new oak. Released for the first time by Penfolds in the early 1950s (first commercial vintage 1957), it gained a new lease of life in the 1990s as its quality and distinctive style became better understood. Proudly, a wine style that hasn’t succumbed to the dictates of fashion or commerce. St Henri is rich and plush when young, gaining soft, earthy, mocha-like characters with age. It is matured in an assortment of old large vats that allow the wine to develop, imparting minimal, if any oak character. Although a small proportion of cabernet may sneak into the blend, the focal point for St Henri remains shiraz.
This Shiraz wine presents initial savoury notes followed by rich cherry liqueur and chocolate aromas. It features a blend of dried beef, traditional garrigue herbs, and a unique mix of copha, cranberry, and activated walnut. Notably, there is no discernible influence from oak or artificial elements in the wine.

A textural masterpiece with plush, seamless feel and silky tannins. It offers rich flavors of black olive, coffee, and mocha from generous Shiraz fruits in South Australia. Medium-bodied, it effortlessly fills the mouth with a succulent blend of pomegranate, cranberry, and quince paste-induced acidity, balanced by fruit sweetness.
