Wyndham Estate Bin 444 Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The Bin 444 has been a 'go to' wine for bargain buyers for decades, and this latest offering delivers the consistancy of previous releases. Dark berries, soft spices and toastiness float out of the glass, whilst the palate is smooth and juicy, with licks of licorice, soft tannins, and a gentle, juicy finish. Ideal with a pulled pork roll. 

Winemaker's Notes

Nose: Black cherry and plum spice with vanilla toast.

Palate: Blackcurrant, licorice and red fruits complement with integrated toasty oak. Subtle tannins create a focused lingering finish to the palate.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
A blend of padthaway, Langhorne Creek and Barossa Valley grapes. Has good varietal presence in an amiable fashion, making it as enjoyable now as it will be in 5 years. Honest value.

This old-school classic is one of the softest, most approachable cabernets going. Some varietal leafy aromas, cassis and brambly edges. The palate is impossibly soft, attractive blackcurrant flavour, just sweet through the finish. They've worked hard on this.

I enjoyed this for its attractive texture, juicy succulence, and bright, ripe, sweet redcurrant pastille flavours.

Continues the theme for these Bin wines; they neither under- nor over-deliver, and can be routinely depended on to present true varietal character in an unostentatious, medium-bodied frame when you have top vintages such as '04.

A long-standing brand that has made its name in soft, ripe flavours and smooth approachability. Consistent.

Fresh, direct black and red fruits on a light- to medium-bodied palate; balanced, savoury tannins.

Medium red-purple; the moderately intense bouquet has earth, blackberry and blackcurrant aromas, the light to medium-bodied palate veering distinctly towards the savoury/earthy end of the spectrum.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (1999 Vintage) says
Although the price of the Wyndham triple number range of red wines has gone up this year (by $3 a bottle) we reckon that, on the whole, the increase has been matched by an upward shift in quality. This cabernet is really quite restrained and herbal when you first try it, but it opens out with some air to reveal good purple berry fruit and elegant but intense varietal flavour and grippy structure. Good wine.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (1998 Vintage) says
This is a soft, sweet-fruited, easy-drinking red with ripe, red cherry and plummy flavours and a silky texture. The acids are quite high on the finish which some will find a tad off-putting although we expect these to soften with time. A crowd pleaser.
