“Baby Grange” Bin 389 has been hailed as the most auspicious wine due to its lucky Bin number according to Chinese tradition: 3 symbolises “birth”, 8 for “fortune” and 9 for “longevity”. Moreover, the Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz blend is always sought-after by Chinese drinkers as the fruitiness and richness of the wine is perfect for pairing with Chinese cuisine.

Released in magnum with special packaging for the Year of Ox, the release in 2020 commemorates the 60th anniversary since Bin 389 was first made in 1960 by legendary winemaker Max Schubert.
