Penfolds 389 - What happened here?

Fowler Mar 22, 2013 09:47 AM

I'm not complaining, just asking. :-)

It seems like it was not that long ago when I considered Penfolds 389 an everyday wine. Something that I could open to drink with burgers or sausages on the grill. I think I was paying around $16 USD for it a little over a decade ago.

Now the current release is almost $50 USD! What happened? Are they now using what I guess one would call declassified Saint Henri or Grange to now make 389? I do not know how else they could justify the increase from $16 to $50 in a little over 10 years.

    And look at the price of Grange . . .
