"The glory of 389 is that it makes the most of its components. It wrings the best structural, dry, herbal elements from cabernet; the plusher, sweeter, come-hither charms of shiraz, and the creamy opulence of American oak. This 2012 is the Bin 389 Show in all its pomp. Flush with blackcurrant, dark olive, coffee-cream, soft straps of liquorice, saturated plum, gum leaves and smoky, spicy oak. It’s a celebration of warm climate Australian red wine, spruced up, hair slicked back, on the way to the community hall in its Saturday night best. Good behaviour is expected and demanded but fun will be had, over many years. I admire this wine. It sets out both its ambitions and its style, and races to meet them.

95 Points/Drink 2019-2030+" - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front

"Deep, dense crimson-purple; the profound bouquet offers every kind of black fruits imaginable, large and small, yet somehow leaves a space and air in the mix for more complex secondary characters to emerge given time - lots of it. The palate takes all this, and adds to it with barrel ferment characters introducing licorice and touches of wild herb. This wine fully lives up to the great expectations held of it (and the vintage). Arguably the bargain of the release."

Buying At Auction?

Your Questions, Answered

What do you need from me to get started?

We will need you to confirm that you are over 18 (for obvious reasons!) and to open an account by registering on the site. This will include provision of credit card details for any eventual purchases. You will also need to sign that you have read the terms and conditions.

How many wines are in each Lot?

You will see the quantity (number of bottles) stated above the price. Please note that the bid-price is per bottle so you will need to multiply the price by the number of bottles in the lot to calculate the total price of the lot.

Can I cancel my bid if I change my mind?

All bids are final - please think before you confirm your bid.

How much is the Buyers' Commission?

We have an extremely competitive buyers' commission of 16.5% (GST inclusive). This will be added to the final winning price of your Lot at the end of the auction.

What are your freight charges?

Please see our Delivery Policy for full details relating to freight.

Is there a Guarantee on my wine?

Under Australian law, consumer guarantees do not apply to goods purchased at auction - all such purchases are at the risk of the Buyer. We will always provide as much detail as we can as to the visual condition and provenance of each Lot, however this is done so as a guide rather than as a guarantee.
