It’s never a dull-moment with Jane Chuck and Penfolds.
“I think Penfolds can be savoured at any moment, really”, says Jane Chuck; founder of skincare and loungewear brand, Chucks. Co. We don’t need a reason to enjoy a fine glass of wine, especially when it comes to a bottle from the Penfolds line. The Australian winery comes from a long line of history and heritage since its founding in 1844. It profoundly reflects Australia’s journey from a colonial settlement to the modern vicinity. Penfolds’ collections are considered the benchmark of wines, when it comes to quality and innovation. The brand recently introduced its 2020 collection, featuring a family of vintage wines — consisting of both whites that deliver on complexity and flavour as well as red wines of distinctive refinement and cellaring potential.
One of them includes a new wine blended from four vintages of Grange, named Penfolds g4. The 2002, 2004, 2008 and 2016 are outstanding on its own; different in every sense but combined, the Penfolds g4 now holds the perfect blend of the four in terms of quality, structural and style perspective. The Grange takes charge but this year, the 2018 Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz commemorates its 60th anniversary since it was first made in 1960 by Max Schubert. The Bin 389 is one of the world’s most cellared red wine styles. It is a Penfolds classic with a reputation that everyone across the globe would know — that some may even affectionately call it ‘Baby Grange’.
Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker describes the Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz as ‘a manifestation that is Penfolds, a style extolls the wisdom of blending, as it does the synergies afforded by varietal and sourcing freedom.’ It’s harmonious, balanced and focused, the same extraordinary traits that Jane Chuck carries as she juggles between being an entrepreneur, model, influencer and a DJ. To celebrate Bin 389’s 60th anniversary, we asked Jane Chuck to share “3” extraordinary facts, “8” extraordinary wine experiences and “9” extraordinary experiences.
