Shiraz Cabernet

The blend of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz has been called the most Australian of wine styles. While French regulation forbids winemakers to blend the noble grape of Bordeaux, cabernet sauvignon, with the noble grape of the Rhone, shiraz, it was Max Schubert, creator of legendary Penfolds Grange, who made the Penfolds Bin 60A – a blend of Coonawarra cabernet and Barossa shiraz. The inaugural 1962 vintage went on to become Penfolds’ most successful show wine of all time. Together with its 2004 successor, the only other vintage of the wine ever made, the Bin 60A is considered the benchmark for the style, and many regard the 1962 as Australia’s greatest wine.
