Penfolds is Australia's oldest and most iconic winery with a history and legacy that reflects the country's journey from colonial settlement to the modern era. The winery was founded in 1844 by Dr. Christopher Rawson Penfold who emigrated with his wife from England to South Australia to plant his vines obtained from France on the Magill Estate. The reason for this was not to make Australia's best wine, but to find a cure for anaemia. Christopher believed in the medicinal properties of wine and used it in his family practice that grew in reputation.

The Australian wine industry, including Penfolds, changed dramatically with the arrival of winemaker Max Schubert who created world famous Grange and Bin wines. In 1988 Max Schubert was named 'Man of the year' by Decanter Magazine and Penfolds Grange 1955 is now listed as a national heritage site. Penfolds has an extraordinary collection of awards and with each generation of winemakers, Max Schubert's remarkable vision is nurtured and enhanced.

Today, Peter Gago is the 'Guardian of the Grange' and sets the standard for all Penfolds wines. It was even named 'Most Admired Wine Brand' by Drinks International in early 2019 and in all likelihood many more awards will follow

The Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz has unmistakable Penfolds character. Coming from vineyards located on ancient soils of Marananga, located in the northwest center of the Barossa Valley where warm, dry conditions and ferruginous red soil form the backbone for some of the region's best-known wines. Each vintage delivers a contemporary shiraz alternative, framed by a blend of oak; French and American, old and new - and made in the 'Penfolds way'.

The Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz has matured for 12 months in American oak (25% new, 25% 1-year) and French oak (25% new, 25% 1-year). The wine has a deep dark red color with a beautiful firm complex nose with oriental spices, cumin and dried fennel, blueberry and juniper notes, oak
and with some wlasen even some carefully hidden nutty and ginger notes. Full bodied on the palate with blueberries again, a hint of cola and with fine grained but present tannins and a good acidity.
